In case you haven't met us yet, let me introduce ourselves.
We are the Brockes Family. My name is Brandy Brockes. I am a born and raised California Missouri girl. I graduated in 2003
from California High School. I split my time between the tire shop and being a hair dresser. I come from a line of cars,
so it makes sense I ended up owning a tire/repair shop with my husband. My dad owns a local used car dealership and my
grandpa was a mechanic his whole life. To say I've been around cars a few time is an understatment :).
Adam Brockes is a former Osage County guy. Born and raised in St. Thomas, MO and graduated Fatima High School in 2004. Adam
has mechanics in his blood, starting out building pulling tractors at a young age with his dad. Adam started out working
for Danny Schaffer in a heavy equipment garage and built from there. He went on to become a mechanic for Shrimpf Landscaping
and then opened his own business in 2012. Adam has learned a lot about vehicles and how to fix them right over the past
Our kiddos are Conner and Ruby. Conner is 6 and started kindergarten this year. He has been our biggest challenge and greatest
accomplishment. That kid test us everyday, but overall is super smart and we know he will never give up on anything he
puts his mind to. Trust me! :)
Ruby is our sweet 14 month old little girl. She started working in the shop with me before she was 2 weeks old. A lot of
you might remember that sweet little bundle that used to sit wrapped up with me. Well now she's on the move and super active.
She always has a smile on her face and loves everyone. We couldn't ask for a sweeter baby.
We encourage everyone to stop in anytime and say hi! If you see us out, we'd love to talk! We do live in California and know
the importance of supporting local businesses, so we try to get out and about as much as we can between work, school and
Kevin has been with us since November of 2014 and has been a mechanic for the past 6 years. He is one of our mechanics and
specializes in electrical diagnostics. He also enjoys doing head gasket work. Kevin has been married to Alisha Connell
for 5 years and has a 1 1/2 year old little boy, Lucas. They reside in California, MO. In Kevin's spare time he likes to
work on the farm, spend time with his family, shoot guns and video games.
Kevin has really grown as a mechanic in the past couple years and we value him as an employee! Kevin was Adam's first full-time
employee and had to endure the ride of our crazy first couple years! Thanks for being a trooper and hanging in there buddy!
Meet Ryan Heimericks!
Ryan has been with us since April of 2016. He works mainly as our farm service call tech. It's Ryan's favorite thing because
it lets him get out of the shop and interact with community members. Ryan has been in the tire and automotive industry
for 12 years.
Ryan is married to Geneva Heimericks for 14 years and they have 5 children, Harley, Elsie, Caleb, Emma and Cooper. They reside
in Jamestown MO. In his spare time, he likes to hunt and farm. He spends time with his family and enjoys a good beer.
We don't know what we would do without Ryan. We know we can send him out on a service call with no question of it being done
