Originally established by Steve Roos in 1984, Steve Roos Motor Services has become an icon in the Browns Bay community. Still in the family 30 years later, the business has some history.
Steve Roos started his apprenticeship in 1950 at 17 at Lyon Motors, the flagship Ford Dealership on Auckland’s North Shore. After years of service with Lyon Motors, Steve took up the position of Foreman at Browns Bay Auto Services on the corner of Beach and Anzac Roads in North Shore’s Browns Bay.
After a short time at Browns Bay Auto Services, Steve purchased a new, but struggling, workshop located nearby – and Steve Roos Motor Services was born.
Through great pride in his workmanship and providing great customer service Steve successfully built up the business over the years. He created a great reputation for himself within the wider motor industry, and established the workshop as an iconic part of the East Coast Bays.
As the business grew, so did Steve’s two sons. Both sons have been involved in the workshop from an early age following Steve to work in overalls eventually both working there, with Jared Roos completing his apprenticeship under Steve.
Steve Roos retired in 2004 and Jared purchased the workshop keeping the Roos name in Steve Roos Motor Services.
In 2013 Will Silva joined the team and shortly after, a workshop renovation was completed and Warrant of Fitness certification was gained.
At Steve Roos Motor Services, we have created a welcoming environment and still have the same sense of pride that Steve founded the business on. We are continually growing and developing ourselves so we can keep servicing North Shore customers for another 30+ years.
