VIDEO: Marcel is alive and well, and happily fixing cars

Marcel's Automotive has grown from a backyard business, to a new three-bay full service garage

Marcel Lamoureux, a millwright by trade, suffered health issues that forced him into an early retirement.

Not one to take bad news lying down, he went back to school to find a new path within his new limitations.

One cannot escape their destiny, it seems, and all roads led back to his lifelong passion – mechanical work.

"A millwright is basically an industrial maintenance mechanic. I've worked with these tools all my life," says Lamoureux on being a residential mechanic. "When I broke my hip, they sent me to all different kinds of schooling... I was told basically, your a mechanic, that's it!"

And he couldn't be happier about that.

From his small backyard garage, word quickly spread and before he knew it Marcel's Automotive was in need of a space that could accommodate his growing clientele base.

With three bays and all new state-of-the-art equipment, Lamoureux and team are ready to help you with all your vehicle needs.

Call Marcel's Automotive at 705-942-2715.
