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.

BTA is privileged to have some of the best ASE certified technicians in the valley working at our shop.
