Founded in 1991, JC Automotives’ ethos is much like John Cetinich, the man behind our name. Straightforward, uncomplicated and to-the-point. John was all about honesty, reliable service, and so is the workshop he founded.
From 2000 through to 2016, JC Automotives found it’s home in Bulimba, before moving into its new, more modern facilities in Morningside. Just a short distance from our previous location, our current shop is conveniently located near the CityCat and Brisbane city centre.
In 2010, JC Automotives became fondly referred to as John & Caleb Automotives, beginning a new chapter in the JC Automotives legacy, when Caleb took control of the business. The workshop was attended by Caleb, the head car mechanic, and his daughter Tahné, one of the growing number of Brisbane female mechanics. The end of 2018 bought that chapter to a close.
The time has now come for JC Automotives to start another chapter as the ownership is transferred to Lachlan de Mezieres and his father, Jean-Pierre who will be proud to continue on the reputation of this business. Lachlan’s mechanical journey started from watching his grandfather (Henri) fixing cars which led him to serve his apprenticeship to become a qualified mechanic. Henri, now retired, is a well-respected mechanic and business owner who spent nearly 50 years in the industry. Lachlan’s experience is very broad having worked on most makes and models of vehicles, including European cars. He brings his enthusiasm and excellent work ethic to everything he does. He looks forward to servicing existing and new customers with exceptional workmanship and customer service. Henri is also a regular at the business, make sure you say “Hello” when you see him.
