By maintaining integrity, enthusiasm, and quality in our work, we at K-Tech Automotive strive to be Sebastopol’s go-to shop for anything automotive—and to be thought of fondly and with respect in our community.
From the Owner, Kate Jonasse - I founded K-Tech Automotive in 2009 because I wanted to run a shop with my values—quality repairs and customer care. My opportunity came when I was able to rent a bay in the old Ford dealership on Highway 12 in Sebastopol. Overhead was low to start, and I grew the business organically—as I made some money, I bought another tool.
I posted an ad on Craigslist offering my services as a woman-owned repair shop, and people started coming in; word spread, and K-Tech Automotive grew. Many people felt comfortable bringing their cars to me.
After about nine months, I hired my first employee, and eventually another tech and service writer. In 2012, we moved to our present location at 198 S. High Street, a unique, historic building that fits our unique shop. And it’s convenient—we're right next to Ives Park and a block from Main Street.
At K-Tech Automotive, we care about our customers' vehicles. At the same time, K-Tech Automotive, itself, is a vehicle for personal and professional development, for me and my team, as well as a means to live a fulfilling life by providing a valuable and necessary service to others.
