After a number of years in the trade, in 2007 Shane Reid took a leap of faith to open his own workshop. Initially on his own with a vision to become South Taranaki’s preferred Auto Electrical supplier, word of mouth soon spread as his specialist ability became well known. As his popularity grew,  the need to incorporate a vehicle mechanic meant a complete one stop shop for his customers. Kurt Kempton joined the team in 2013 and together they combine their expertise to give South Taranaki nothing less than premium car care and valuable advice.  Once you’ve taken the Evolution Automotive experience you will never want to journey with anyone else. We invite you to join us.
