Emerson Toomey, started his career at age 16 interning for Goodyear learning all aspects and techniques related to extending tire life and road handling and applied this knowledge in the R & D department for a race company before moving to our company for his first stay as an apprentice learning all aspects of Honda and Toyota service and repair. Working at two other independent shops he expanded his knowledge to include a multitude of vehicle repair and service before becoming a technician at a leading Acura dealer. An injury left him temporarily unable to continue in the technical arena, but continued as an advisor for Ford where he became certified in all 13 service fields and was awarded Fords top “Blue Oval” Certification. Resuming his technical back round as a certified Ford and Toyota technician and later as Chief Technician for a leading independent car broker with extensive training, testing, and certification in automotive air conditioning and braking systems, Emerson has placed himself among the elite.
