Read on to learn why we are the premier truck and RV repair shop, “Where Customer Service Comes First.”
Our owner and the most seasoned technician, Gene Helmkamp, graduated from SIUC with his Associate’s Degree in Automotive Technology. After serving in the Army Reserves, he also earned his ASE Master Technician and Advanced Technician certifications. In 1967, Gene and his wife, Janet opened the shop where it stands and still operates today.
Auto is a family-owned and owner-operated business
that prides itself on giving honest prices for quality work. In recent years, the Helmkamps have trained their sons, Mike
and Todd, to assume more responsibility in the business.
Mike Helmkamp has spent years with us, practically growing up in the shop. He swept and sorted parts as a boy, then became ASE certified
as a Master Technician. Currently, he is in charge of parts procurement, estimates, and the day-to-day running of the business.
Todd Helmkamp attended Parks College, a part of St. Louis University. He graduated with his associate’s degree and A&P certification. In 1995, he left us to become an instructor with ACDelco. He is back, and now heads up our service department and shares management duties.
