DUANE IRLBECK - OWNER/PRESIDENT
Duane's Repair, Inc. was founded by Duane Irlbeck in July 1986. It was originally located at the Corner Station southeast of town. It started as a one stall garage with an additional stall added about a year later.
In 1993 Duane began looking for a new business site and with the help of the Templeton Area Development Corporation a business park was established, a lot was purchased, and a new building was constructed. Duane's Repair, Inc. moved in February of 1995. It housed a parts room, an upstairs storage area for tires, and four work stalls. In 2000 Duane became a used car dealer and began selling used cars. In 2001 an addition was constructed that added three more stalls.
In 2002 Duane purchased the lot to the east of his buiding from the TADC and a 60ft X 100ft storage building was constructed.
In 2011 another addition was added to the north side of the building for tools and equipment and an additional hoist was added. In 2016 another addition was added to the south of the storage building. It contains a drive over pit to do alignments on, an additional hoist, wash bay and more storage. As of August of 2016 Duane's Repair, Inc. employs 6 full time people. The company sells about one hundred vehicles a year and has a large customer base for its automotive service repair facility.
Duane invites anyone to come and see why so many people return to us for sevice and sales time and time again. Duane, his wife Angela, and daughter Lauren live here in Templeton.
