Owner/ASE Certified Master Technician at
Fairfield Automotive Service Center
Joe has always had an interest in cars. Ever since he was a young boy, he and his brother would sit on the front porch on Anderson Ferry road for hours and name the make, model and year of the car before it would pass them by. He grew up playing with remote control cars and building models, and of course he would always modify them. When he was old enough to buy his first car, which was a 1980 Mustang, it wasn’t good enough for him to just drive it. He rebuilt the engine, lowered it and customized the exterior.
Joe attended high school at Diamond Oaks Vocational School were he earned his first degree in Automotive Engineering Technology/Technician. He then began helping friends and family fix their cars. He continued is education at the University of Toledo.
Joe started in the business in 1990 as an Automotive Technician for Firestone, he has also worked for BP ProCare, Bob Sumerel, and Kirschs as an ASE Certified Technician. His dream was always to run his own service center. His dream became a reality in 2013 when he opened Fairfield Automtive.
He is not just the owner, he will most likely be the mechanic personally working on your car. He is a hands-on problem solver and continues to stay on top of technologies, so he can service your vehicle. Besides himself, he has 2 talented employees with 48 years of experience collectively.
His team includes Don Fields who started in the business in 1996 and quickly moved into management in 2000. He has 15 plus years of experience in exhaust systems, but he doesn’t stop there, he manages hundreds of customers in his usual charming and professional manner.
Joe is married with three sons and enjoys spending time with his family during his off time.
