Our Journey

Nathan’s Automotive was established in 2000 in Noble by Nathan and Tessa Gwin. It started in the alley of their home on 5th St, where they had a primitive 2-bay shop. They passed out fliers door to door and welcomed the community to an automotive shop where honesty and quality were and still are the #1 goal every day. Do good, honest work, and customers will come back!

In 2002 they were given the opportunity to purchase the shop they are at today and jumped on it. It wasn’t easy getting the financing to purchase the shop but with God’s help they found a local bank that would take a chance on them. McClain Bank has stood by Nathan’s every step of the way !!! Since then Nathan’s has been committed to the community and providing good quality work at a fair and reasonable price. We have had to expand the shop several times by adding new bays, new employees and more parking. We have added a state-of-the-art alignment machine along with many other service machines to help maintain customer cars and keep repairs to a minimum.

Our Commitment to the Noble Community can be seen through our sponsorship in multiple sports and activities through the Noble School System including our Auto Repairs for Bears program which gives back 5% to Noble Schools. Also our participation in local festivals, parades, and community functions.

In 2020, Nathan’s #1 WIG (wildly important goal) is to provide 5 Star Customer Service. We plan on doing that by redoing the office to make it more customer-friendly and purchasing a new tablet-inspired software system to make communication with our customers easy and seamless. This system will provide pictures and videos to inform and educate customers on needed repairs. We continue to grow every day and look forward to making Nathan’s Automotive the best it can be!

In 2023, after 12 years as a full-time technician, Jerry Wittman became a co-owner of Nathan’s Automotive, Inc. Jerry will continue to offer and oversee the high standards and exceptional work we have always provided at Nathan’s Automotive!
