Meet Our Owner: Chuck Kurt
When Chuck Kurt, President of Kurt’s Auto & Truck Center, Inc., started his business in 1974, he wanted to make sure it was firmly based on the principles of education and integrity. During the past forty years, Chuck has continued to build on that foundation. It shows in the way he cares for his customers and their needs, and in the pride he takes in his skilled staff. Everyone who works at Kurt’s is kept on the leading edge of the latest technologies in car, truck, and motorhome repair.
Before starting his business, Chuck gained a wealth of experience in the automotive field. He spent five years working at a service station, worked for two years as a service technician for GM dealerships, two years as a mechanical engineer, and four years as a nuclear weapons technician in the U.S. Air Force. He has also been an ASE certified Master Automobile Technician since 1974. Chuck holds a Masters of Science degree in Education, and is a state certified vocational school instructor. Chuck brought his love of teaching and the automotive world together when he taught automotive technology at the Rockford Area Career Center for five years.
Outside of work, Chuck’s interests include spending time with his family and watching his granddaughters grow. When Chuck finds time to relax he enjoys going to his cottage on Green Lake in Wisconsin, where he enjoys boating and the peace of the lake.
