Customer Highlight: Vintage Iron Garage LLC

Vintage Iron GarageHere at MyCorp, we love profiling small businesses that have incorporated with us and we’re excited to introduce you to the founders of Vintage Iron Garage LLC, Jesse Vaughan and Ken Brown, on our blog!

Jesse and Ken are factory Mercedes-Benz trained technicians that completed their apprenticeship under one of the top 30 Master Guild Mercedes-Benz technicians in the country. This created an unprecedented foundation built on doing work with a high level of quality, service and attention to detail that few ever reach. They took those core values, combined them with their vast and ever expanding knowledge base and skill level and adapted them into the classic/vintage car industry.
