Owners



ARS Automotive began in 1969 as Dan's Exxon in Turtle Creek, PA by former owner Dan Frohlich. In 1975, Dan purchased property in Plum Boro and established ARS Automotive in a 3,600 square foot shop. The shop was originally known as Antiques, Rods, and Specialty Works. As time went on, he grew his business beyond antique vehicles, expanding it to include general mechanical repairs and body work. Over several years, the building itself was expanded to over 14,000 square feet, and from one employee to ten employees. In 1999, Dan sold the business to his stepdaughter LeeAnne and his son in law Chris. Chris and LeeAnne have since expanded the business to 16 employees and continue serving the greater Pittsburgh area today, but you can still catch Dan tinkering with his hot rods and running the tow truck!

    ARS is the best! Better than 5 stars! I had my car in for repairs after I hit a truck tire laying in the middle of the parkway. The heat shield etc were damaged. Justin looked at the damage, ordered the parts and it was fixed within a week. Everyone is just great to work with. Also when I picked up my car they had it spotless and looking like new! I highly recommend them for ANY automotive needs!
