About Us


History of Precision Motor Werks

Precision Motor Werks opened in 1986 as a premier automotive machine shop performing engine machining and rebuilding. In 1994 we expanded into Dynanometer testing and added Racing Engines to our list of specialties. Expanding into auto repair early on and increasing the size of our team, we now have 4 full-time outstanding technicians and 7 service bays. Our facility has expanded in segments and what was once Barnard Street Motors alongside Precision Motor Werks has solely become Precision Motor Werks. We replaced the engine dynanometer with two more service bays in order to maintain the increasing demand in service. We have constantly kept up with the ever-changing technology of automobiles with regular schooling and investments in the latest equipment required for making the most accurate diagnosis and precise repairs.
