About us

Our proprietor Ian Richards has worked his way up through the industry, gaining a wealth of invaluable experience along the way. Starting out in the trade with a Holden dealership in Melbourne in 1979, he then worked during the 1980s for Bill Santuccione, an ex-Ford race team engineer (Moffat and GTHOs) at Special Vehicles Engineering in Prahran and St Kilda. It was here that Ian honed his skills in turbocharging, tuning, custom fabrication, engine building and blueprinting.

From the early 90s, Ian worked at API Engines, the Japanese engine importers, and then went on to set up his own business, which then based Melbourne. Next, he headed north to manage two workshops before establishing Aitkenvale Auto and Dyno in 2002.

Whatever vehicle services you require from logbook servicing and certification to performance tuning and upgrades, Ian and the team have the expertise to take care of it all.
