Glen Sheppard is a joint Director of Bellbowrie Auto Care Pty Ltd trading as ”Ultimate Auto Care” with David Evans. Glen started his trade in New Zealand working on mainly Japanese and European made cars. Glen completed his AutomotiveApprenticeship in 1998. From there he studied Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering in Otago.
In late 2002 Glen made the decision to move to Brisbane. His first job in Australia was running a workshop within the Mobil Service Stations group that David owned. This was a good introduction to working in Australia as he saw a wide variety of manufacturers from around the world.
From here Glen worked for Midas running a number of sites for them. Again seeing a lot of vehicle manufacturers from all over the world.
After a few years of running Midas stores Glen was presented with an opportunity to work with David again, this time as a joint Director of Bellbowrie Auto Care Pty Ltd.
Over the past 10 years “Ultimate Auto Care” has grown to six workshops. Glen would like to see this number expand so that “Ultimate Auto Care” will become an industry leader in the Automotive Repair Business.
Glen and David understand how fast the Automotive Industry is changing. Currently, it’s possibly the fastest moving industry in regards to technology introduction and change. With this understanding Glen and David realise the importance of keeping up to date with equipment and staff knowledge.
Currently they have:
Five of their Automotive Technicians undergoing an Automotive Electrical Apprenticeship.
The latest Diagnostic Software in conjunction with Scan Tool equipment and staff training.
Eighteen staff from all over the world so that “Ultimate Auto Care” is able to repair all European, Japanese, American and Korean vehicles.
It is the vision of both Glen and David that they are active participants and not bystanders in the future of the Automotive Industry.
