Our Background

Chris McClaskie is the sole owner of Performance Automotive. The shop was started by Chris's brother-in-law in 1982, who later brought Chris aboard as a partner. In 1990, Chris took over the shop to build one of the most enterprising German car repair shops in Columbus, Upper Arlington, Hilliard, Dublin, and Galloway.

Ever since Chris was young, he loved cars and he nurtured his passion by fixing farm equipment in a repair shop. Up-to-date, he enjoys working on small engines and tractors. When he is not in the shop, Chris is an outdoor enthusiast who loves camping and fishing.
