STOUGHTON, Mass. (Jan. 22, 2016) — Garage Gurus, Federal-Mogul Motorparts' nationwide technical training network for automotive service professionals, has expanded to the greater Boston area with the opening of a 7,500-sq.-ft. facility in Stoughton.
Southfield, Mich.-based Federal-Mogul held a grand opening on Jan. 20 for the new training center — its 10th to open in the U.S. within the past year. Like its other Garage Gurus training centers, the facility will provide onsite, online and on-demand training and product support to repair professionals, according to the company.
“Garage Gurus brings much-needed focus to the talented, hardworking professionals who help keep millions of consumers safe and secure behind the wheel,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO of Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “The demand for vehicle service has never been greater, with more than 200 passenger cars per U.S. repair bay.
“I believe it is our responsibility as a leading manufacturer to provide the technical support and other assistance these businesses need to keep pace with each new wave of vehicle technology.”
Federal-Mogul said Garage Gurus is a central element of its “Tech First” initiative to help repair businesses keep pace with the latest automotive technologies. In addition to the newest location, Garage Gurus operates technical centers in Atlanta; Baltimore; the Bronx, N.Y.; Chicago; Dallas/Fort Worth; Fort Lauderdale, Fla.; Rancho Dominguez, Calif.; St. Louis; and Van Nuys, Calif.
A new facility is scheduled to open in Detroit in the coming months, the company said.
