Ever since Alan was a little boy he has been interested in anything that runs. His dad still remembers the day someone gave him a broken down motorcycle. His dad said to Alan, “What are you doing with that broken down thing.” That evening Alan had motorcycles’ motor parts spread all over the front porch. By the next afternoon, he was riding the motorcycle around his parents’ house. The passion for repairing anything with a motor began early and has stayed constant throughout his life. He has worked at auto repair facilities since he was 16 and when he was 25 he was able to purchase Alpine Automotive. He’s built a great reputation here in the Yakima Valley and strives to provide the best customer service for all his customers.
Justin grew up going into the shop and watching and at times helping his father with little repairs here and there. He enjoyed being around the shop but didn’t have the passion for repairing vehicles like Alan. Once Justin finished college he knew he wanted to work at a good business and found that at a fruit packing facility here in the Yakima Valley. With time the wear of harvest and long hours took a toll. He moved to Salt Lake City on a whim and worked for a uniform company for a year before moving back to his roots to work at the family business. He always loved making changes in past jobs and strives to make changes for the better at Alpine.
