We received the following "Thank You" from one of our new clients:

Good day,

I wanted to acknowledge the package we received from Lanpro. My wife, Elizabeth, was especially happy with the chocolates.
I was quite pleased with the service we received at Lanpro, especially as they knew we were travelling back north the next day. I had read positive reviews about your centre on a website and I was not disappointed. I have shared that with people from the north looking for quality service.
We do not get to Winnipeg often but if we do need further assistance, Lanpro is already in my phone contacts.
Again, our appreciation to Lance for the card and package and we look forward to future business.

This is what the thank you note said:

"To the folks at Lanpro,

Thank you so much for taking care of me and my car. I'm glad to have found you. Your team treat me with respect and kindness, fixes my vehicle in a timely manner, provides reasonable pricing, and Matt and Julian are always patient and thorough when communicating with me.

My dad was always the go to guy when it came to vehicle maintenance (he was a welder and mechanic by trade) but he passed away in 2016.

I can't rightly express how grateful I am that you treat your clients like family members. It sure makes a difference and means a lot.

Enjoy those little treats.
Thank You
Cheryl Waldner"

October 13, 2014 Lanpro Auto Celebrates 25 years in Business

Lanpro Auto Care Staff
When I started my career in the automotive field, my goal was to own my own new car dealership. I started off by taking the Automotive Technician course at Red River Community College. After graduating from it, I worked at a new car dealer, where I ended up getting my licence. While working as a technician I went to night school where I took accounting. After five years as a technician, I went into management, 2 years at a box store automotive shop and then 9 years at a new car dealership. At the dealership, I was there from the day it opened, there was one technician and myself. I was the Parts and Service Manager. After about five years we added a Body Shop, which I also managed. We grew to a staff of 16 plus myself when I left. In the spring of 1989, I decided that it wasn't likely I was going to be able to come up with enough money to acquire or start a new car dealership. So after a lot of thought and talking with my wife and parents, I decided the next best thing would be to start a repair shop and build from there. My ultimate goal was to have a one stop place where you could buy a vehicle and be able to have it repaired there too.

I scoured the ads for businesses for sale, looked at a few and ended up buying a person's equipment and tools and taking over his lease at the corner of Ellice Ave. and Wall St. This location was shared with Thrifty Car Rental. They had the front office and 1 bay, and I had 3 bays with my office/reception on the opposite end of the building at the back of the building with the entrance on the side. My next problem was a name. So my parents, wife, and I sat down and tried to come up with a name. I'm not very creative that way, but someone came up with the name Lanpro Auto Care Centre Ltd. Which in hindsight was way too long and Lanpro Auto would have been just fine.

Next issue was employees. The person I bought the tools and equipment from recommended that I keep on one of his employees, John, which I did. Through the paper's classified ads, I found and added one more technician. On October 13, 1989 I received the keys to my building and Monday at 8:00 am Lanpro Auto was started. We boomed right from the start and I thought, wow had I lucked onto a good thing. It was cold, vehicles were breaking down, which made us busy even though it was Christmas. But then I had a rude awakening. When February came, the weather was warm and at that time, it was when everyone's Autopac had to be paid by the end of the month. It was like someone turned the switch off and business slowed down to just about nothing, and it made me realize that this wasn't going to be as easy as I had thought. It would take a marketing plan to make us grow.

After 2 1/2 years, Thrifty Car Rental moved out and I was able to take over the whole building. This gave me 4 bays and my office was moved to the front of the building. This made things better visibility wise, and was way better to operate out of, for our clients as well as myself. When my lease ended after 8 years, we had out grown our building and I knew I would need a larger facility. I finally located our current location, which has nine bays, and on the September long weekend in 1997, we moved in and were ready for business on the Tuesday morning. It was a huge undertaking, with our employees and the help of family & friends, we managed to do it.

It's been a challenge to continue to grow in many ways, with finding the right employees to finding ways to grow our business. In the spring of 2007, I decided to add the sale of pre-owned vehicles. This has been a challenging and interesting addition to Lanpro Auto. It's a totally different type of business. It's now become an important part of our business.

When I think back to where I was when I started, to where we are today. It's been a long and challenging road with lots of peaks and valleys. There are times I've wondered if it was worth it, but overall I would have to say it was. We have 9 bays, state of the art equipment, and a total of 11 employees with John being with us from the day we started. I wanted a place where you could bring a vehicle and know you will get it repaired properly and also buy a pre-owned vehicle knowing you got value for your money. I'm quite proud to think we've come really close to reaching those lofty goals.
