Javier De Antunano
In 1987, I finished the automotive trade school in Monterrey, Mexico and have been working in the trade ever since as a Red Seal Journeyman Technician. In 1999 I moved to Dallas, Texas and in 2000 became the dealership team leader and in 2005, Shop Foreman. A Prince Albert, SK VW dealership brought me to Canada in 2007 and I worked there until 2016. After that, I worked at independent service facilities servicing all European vehicles from VW to Audi, Porsche, BMW, Maserati, Mercedes Benz, Volvo, etc.
I am a Licensed (Red Seal) Journeyman Technician with over 19 years of automotive repair experience. I am fluent in both French and English. My passion is working on anything that has an engine. My work ethic includes being clean, efficient and professional at all times. I enjoy spending time with my family in beautiful Western Canada.
I have worked in the automotive trade for 8 years and enjoy working on German cars. VW is a favourite. I have always been the type of person that likes to fix things. As a kid I used to fix all my friends toys. Now the repairs are more involved, but still enjoyable. My winter hobbies include snowboarding, snow shoeing and winter hikes. In the summer you can find me camping, dirt biking, trail biking, or on various teams of slow pitch.
