About Metric Motorworks

A message from the owner of Metric Motorworks

johnHello, my name is John Chaplin and I'm the Service Manager and Owner of Metric Motorworks. I'd like to introduce myself and my staff to you and outline both our qualifications and our unique approach to automotive service. I've had over 30 years experience in the automobile service industry, over half of them here on the Oregon coast. I am a recertified ASE master auto technician and have had factory training in several lines including Mercedes Benz.

Tired of the business model at the new car dealerships where I had worked, I opened Metric Motorworks in 1993 with a vision of maintaining an environment where the clients are treated as friends first and foremost.

I began Metric Motorworks as a one man operation. In 1995 I built a new state of the art facility at the current location. I understand people have many choices when it comes to maintaining their vehicles. Metric Motorworks has worked hard to build a solid reputation of integrity, reliability and excellent service and we treat clients as we would like to be treated.



Metric Motorworks is very fortunate to have the experience of Sid on staff. With more than 40 years in the auto service industry, Sid has held almost every position from lube technician to service manager. He also has extensive dealership experience as well as being an ASE recertified master technician.

Having done it all in this business, Sid has found he prefers the technical craft of it and has never lost his enthusiasm for restoring broken things to perfect operation.
