Specialized Import Auto Repair for Import and Domestic Vehicles

Edmonds Import Auto in Palmer, AK

About Us | Edmonds Import Auto

Kevin and Tobi Edmonds, owners of Edmonds Import Auto, first opened up shop in October of 2008.  Prior to that, both Kevin and Tobi each had a decade of experience in the automotive industry.  Kevin had been a VW/Audi/Isuzu technician, and Tobi had been a Parts and Service Advisor.

Kevin’s auto repair background focused primarily on European and Asian vehicles, including VW, Audi, Mercedes, and Isuzu.  He grew up working on, repairing, and maintaining cars, and soon found that doing so was his life’s ambition.  Tobi, on the other hand, has worked with most all vehicle manufacturers in the parts and service department.  She began her automotive career while in college, shipping and receiving for a Toyota dealer, and wound up developing a passion for the industry.  Kevin and Tobi’s combined automotive experiences created a strong, highly knowledgeable foundation for Edmonds Import Auto!
