Meet the BTA Team!
Since 1997, Bob Thomas Automotive has grown from a 4 bay, 2 technician shop to a 10 bay, 5 technician shop. In 2010, BTA expanded our facility to include a new 6000 sq. ft. shop and added 2 new technicians to our staff to serve the needs of our customers better. It allows us to focus on our expanding fleet customer base in the new 12-bay shop, while still giving all of our customers the service and attention that they have come to expect at Bob Thomas Automotive.
