About Us

Automotive Automatics was started in the late seventies by Jim Makin.

He was trained in the repair of automatic transmissions in Australia where he was raised, and was a member of the Australian Automatic Transmission Rebuilders Association. He then travelled to the USA where he further refined his skills in transmissions before coming back to Scotland in the 1970’s. Automotive Automatics first opened at the top of Easter Road and operated there for a short time before moving to its current location.
