Hi! I'm Mike Fox, owner of Master Tech Automotive. Ever since I was able to drive and work on my old Plymouth Fury, I have had a passion for working on cars and trucks.  I've been in the automotive repair business since 1976! When I was approached with the chance to own and operate my own shop, it was a dream come true. Because that means I do not have to fill any corporate requirements. The only requirements I have to satisfy are my own which are to satisfy all my customers.  I do that  by fixing their vehicles the right way, always being honest and charging a fair price. That's why my customers have trusted me with their cars and then with their kids cars. And now those kids have sons and daughters driving and I work on their cars too, and I know that means YOU know I am doing it right. Yeah and I guess that means I am getting older too.

Hi, I’m Michael Minute, a technician at Master Tech Automotive.  I knew I wanted to work on cars or at least be around them since I was 5 years old telling my parents I wanted to be a tire changer. As I got older I really enjoyed helping my dad work on our family cars.  Soon, I owned my own vehicles and with the help of my dad and grandfather who was a mechanic for over thirty years I was performing repairs and helping others with their car problems.  I then attended Alfred State College and got my Associates Degree in Automotive Service in 2001.  Since then, I have worked at multiple dealers learning common problems on many vehicles, old and new.  Not liking the world of flat rate in dealerships I found Master Tech Automotive in 2007.  Master Tech allows me to work on vehicles and give my best without feeling rushed to get the next car in.  I have gotten to build a good relationship with all my customers and actually have time to talk to them in person and hear their car concerns rather than just looking at them through a pane of glass like at the dealerships.  Fixing the problem right the first time has always been my goal and being able to talk to the customer directly makes my job much easier…after all, the customer knows their car best!

Hi, I'm Phil Bassage, the newest addition to Master Tech Automotive.  I am an ASE Certified master technician and have been for over 25 years.  I specialize in GM but am very familiar with other brands and am certified in light vehicle diesel engines.  I have been interested in automobiles for as long as I can remember and it probably started with me helping my step dad when I was just a kid.  I love taking things apart and putting them back together.  I find immense satisfaction from fixing something - anything from pasta makers to Northstar engines.  In my free time I enjoy riding my Harley Street Glide with my wife of 25 years.  For the occasional thrill I will take my 86 Buick T Type to the track to drag race.  I am excited for this new chapter here at MTA and happy to be of service keeping you safe and on the road.

Hi there!  I'm Melissa Fox and I have been at Master Tech since January of 2007.  I wear many hats here.  My main responsibilities are bookkeeping, customer service and planning MTA's Annual Car Show but you can find me in the shop restoring headlights, detailing vehicles or outside landscaping.  I love keeping MTA in tip top shape and taking care of our customers.  I have worked in customer service before however here at MTA I have had the chance to develop wonderful lasting relationships with our customers.  My two friendly fur kids, Charlie & Sampson, are usually at the shop with me greeting customers from behind the counter and love being MTA's unofficial mascots.  In my free time, you can find me outdoors whenever possible hiking with my pups, reading, running, backpacking, snowboarding...the list goes on and on.
