ASW Conversations: Bruce Eccles on changes and challenges in today’s aftermarket


In the latest episode of ASW Conversations, our host and publisher of CARS magazine, Peter Bulmer, catches up with Bruce Eccles, owner of Eccles Auto Service, who was also recently recognized in our Shop of the Week column.
Having started in the automotive aftermarket in 1975, it’s safe to say that Eccles has seen his fair share of changes, challenges, and disruptions over the last 46 years.

“I wish people recognized how important our industry is,” Eccles said. “There was a time where if you struggled in school, then you went out and got a job fixing cars. But cars aren’t simple anymore; you’ve got to be smart…the whole industry needs to get away from the past and move forward.”
