Co-owner Dean Schwartz said the new space and equipment “will allow us to provide the best possible service to our customers and maintain our position as a top-tier shop.”
Throughout its history, Lloyd's said it “has continued to innovate and invest to keep up with the latest automotive technology” found in today's sophisticated vehicles.
In 2013, the company said it made major investments to become one of the first automotive facilities in the nation to become fully certified in hybrid car repair and is part of the Hybrid Shop's network of repair centers.
The dealership said that — recognizing “the importance of sustainability, particularly in the Santa Cruz area” — it has received awards from the Santa Cruz Sentinel and Good Times magazine, and was a finalist last year in the Acterra Awards for Sustainability in business.
Among its latest major upgrades, Lloyd's added advanced equipment from Hunter Engineering, including three Hunter Hawkeye Elite alignment machines to its existing Hunter 811. The company claims to be the only shop in Northern California, including new car dealerships, to have four Hunter alignment machines.
