Meet the Dynamic Duo Behind Automotive Procare in Rochester, MN

Automotive Procare is a family-owned and operated auto repair shop serving Rochester area drivers since 2002. Our owners, Colin Chester and Alex Keehn, are friends and partners in the business, working side by side to consistently provide our customers with quality auto repairs and awesome service. Together, the duo has over 20 years of automotive industry experience, and over 60 years of life experience—both come in handy when running a local, customer-driven auto repair shop.

Colin worked at Automotive Procare for four years as a Master Technician before moving into a management role in 2011. Five years later, in 2016, he became 50% owner of the shop. Then, Colin encouraged Alex to leave his position as a Radiation Therapist at Mayo Clinic to become the other 50% owner of Automotive Procare, which Alex did in 2017. In total, Colin has 17 years of experience in the automotive field, while Alex has 16 years of military experience, six years of experience as a Radiation Therapist, and now three years in the automotive field.
