Hawthorne Auto Lab has been in business for over 20 years. The reason we have been around so long can be summed up in one word HONESTY, and can be attributed to one man, Don Keiser.
Owner, Auto Technician and Self-Made Business Man, Don Keiser started his journey to owning this successful business when he was only 15 years old. Fueled by a passion for cars and for making his own way, he pumped gas while still in high school and started learning all he could about fixing every type of car. With his future bright in front of him, he put himself through trade school and worked his way up to manager at Goffle Brook Shell.
By the time Don turned 28, he was an auto technician with over a decade of experience and in charge of a staff of mechanics. He had earned the respect of his colleagues and customers alike, and on April Fool's Day 1996 he bought the business, with Mom peering over her half glasses and saying, "I hope you know what you are doing since we just co-signed half our house as collateral!"
All these years later, Mom is satisfied that her son did indeed "know what he was doing", and the thousands of customers Don has acquired over the years agree. Servicing an average of 100 vehicles weekly, our customers know who to go to for an honest diagnosis, excellent quality service and extremely fair pricing.
As we move through 2016, Hawthorne Auto Lab is still based on the belief that our customers' needs come first. Our entire team is committed to meeting those needs and to making you, our customer, feel like you are coming to a trusted family member for service.
