People often ask us where the name “Red Bearing” came from.
The easy answer is that it is simply a play on words, something that will stick in people’s memory.
It could also be considered an homage to aircraft design which has had a strong influence in automobile styling.
People also ask us how we got started in this business.
We started in 2006 our home garage. We operated in a tiny building on St. James Street for 5 years before moving to our 5900 square foot shop on Caithness Road in 2012.
In the Fall of 2017, we will be moving one last time to a beautiful 5 acre property just north of Winnipeg.
But, the interest in British cars was planted by our parents when we were children.
We are out-of-the-box thinkers.
What we do requires extreme problem solving. Sometimes other repair shops send us jobs they have given up on.
We are strong believers in education.
Paul is a Red Seal Mechanic. We are always looking to pass our knowledge on to the next generation of automotive technicians.
We are doing what we love.
That’s right, even if we won the lottery, we wouldn’t quit.
Red Bearing Automotive Service & Restoration is owned and operated by Paul & Nancy McLeod.
