A message from the owner of Metric Motorworks

John Chaplin Service manager-owner

Hello, my name is John Chaplin and I’m the owner of Metric Motorworks. I’d like to introduce myself and my crew to you and outline both our qualifications and our unique approach to automotive service. I’ve had over 40 years experience in the automobile service industry, over half of them here on the Oregon coast. I am a re certified ASE master auto technician and have had factory training in several lines including Mercedes Benz.

Tired of the business model at the new car dealerships where I had worked, I opened Metric Motorworks in 1993 with a vision of maintaining an environment where the clients are treated as friends first and foremost.

I began Metric Motorworks as a one man operation and have always operated small with myself and one or two other employees.  I have never aspired to be the biggest but always tried to be the most competent at what we do.  In 1995 I built a new state of the art facility at the current location. I understand people have many choices when it comes to maintaining their vehicles. Metric Motorworks has worked hard to build a solid reputation of integrity, reliability and excellent service and we treat clients as we would like to be treated.
