About Riverland Auto Repairs
Since commencing business in Barmera and the Riverland region in 1989 , the car service Riverland Auto Repairs has enjoyed consistent
growth from its early beginnings as a one-room 15x8 metre workshop with
Con and Julie Tsorotiotis running the show.
"We had work on top of
work," Con remembers with a smile. Gradually the business expanded out
into the old tyre shop workshop next door and brother George
joined the team in 1992. Though Julie has moved on to other pursuits in recent years the Tsorotiotis brothers havent looked back.
boys had engine oil in their blood, with their father being an aircraft
mechanic. "He tried to talk us out of being mechanics but we didn't
listen to him," Con laughs. Con began as an apprentice in the former
Glossop Service Station before working at Berri mechanics the Flying
Spanner, followed by Riverland Tyre and Mag Centre. Con considers his choice of an automotive career one of great reward he still thoroughly enjoys.
"It never stops changing and growing, which keeps your interest going," says Con. Since the business joined the Repco Authorised Car Service Centre things just kept improving and Con feels it was a wise move which is still paying big dividends today: "It's definitely been very rewarding - Repco membership opens up the doors to a lot of knowledge." He says the information sharing and backup between the Repco car services is second to none and an important part of the business' success today.
