WHO ARE WE?
MECHANIKA MOTORS is a family business locally owned and operated by Dean and Jessica Bryant. MECHANIKA MOTORS commenced operations in July 2012 with Dean on the floor and Jess working around her full-time job to assist Dean with paperwork. Since then, the business has grown in physical size with the workshop expanding in 2014 and the addition of staff to build the team. MECHANIKA MOTORS is currently a team of 11. Dean runs the workshop team and Jessica manages the office operations.
It is the mission of MECHANIKA MOTORS to provide the Southern Tablelands with exceptional vehicle and plant related products and services. With the high costs of downtime, owners, maintenance managers and operators can expect timely repair at reasonable cost and a high level of workmanship when dealing with MECHANIKA MOTORS. We take pride in our work and will continually strive to improve our service through an ongoing commitment to training and upgrading our workshop equipment.
