the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness: he is known to be a man of integrity.
Oxford American Dictionary
Integrity Auto Care was founded in 2006 with a dream. A dream about the perfect Auto Repair facility; a business that values its customer relationships and is dedicated to honesty, reliability, safety and peace of mind. A business where the customer feels at home. A place where a man can send his wife, his daughter, or his mother and know that they are being treated with fairness and respect.
Founder, Mike Scott, a North Carolina native, believed that success comes from honesty, integrity and hard work. Over the last 12 years, Mike developed a very loyal following of valued customers by doing business with these principles. At the beginning of 2018 Mike retired from the automotive business and the business took on new ownership. Simon Withers, the new owner, had known Mike for a few years as neighbors in the same business park. Mike liked the way Simon treated his customers at Torque Automotive. He found that they shared the same principles and values in the way they did business and wanted only the best new owner to take over his business. Simon agreed to continue to take excellent care of Mike’s clientele and continue to nurture the very strong relationships that he had developed over the years.
Simon’s passion for cars started in his teens while tinkering with the family car. He persistently tried to find ways to make it “go faster”. Failing at that goal motivated him to persue some formal training as an automotive technician. After completing college in 1999 he began his career in the automotive industry as an apprentice at a performance shop, where he gained valuable experience and exposure to performance upgrades and club racing. In 2001 he moved to a major franchise dealer and started with their apprenticeship program. He quickly gained status as Master Technician and started moving up in the company, first as a Team Leader and soon promoted into management. In 2015 he decided that it was time to take the plunge and start his own shop, and Torque Automotive was born. In 2017 an auto shop neighbor Mike Scott approached Simon and they started with talks about a possible succession plan. In January 2018 a deal was made, and Simon took over Integrity Auto Care as the new owner.
Simon has always made it his mission to raise standards in the Auto Repair industry. He employs the best and brightest ASE certified staff who share the same principles and values putting the customer first. He believes that every customer should be treated as a VIP and long-term relationships with clients are the key to success in this business.
