With more than 7,500-square-feet of training space, the facility will provide on-site, online and on-demand technical training and product support to repair professionals in the region’s more than 5,500 auto service businesses. This is the 10th Garage Gurus location to open in the U.S. within the past year. Garage Gurus is owned and operated by global vehicle components manufacturer Federal-Mogul Motorparts, a division of Federal-Mogul Holdings Corp.

A grand opening celebration will take place at the new training center from noon to 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 20 at 1053 Turnpike Street, Stoughton, Massachusetts. The event is free and open to any automotive service or parts professionals.

Garage Gurus is a central element of Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ “Tech First” initiative to help repair professionals keep pace with the latest automotive technologies. Federal-Mogul Motorparts offers a broad portfolio of leading automotive brands and products – including ANCO Wiper Blades, Champion Spark Plugs, Fel-Pro Gaskets, MOOG Steering and Suspension, and Wagner Brake Products – that are preferred by vehicle service professionals throughout North America, according to the company.

“Garage Gurus brings much-needed focus to the talented, hardworking professionals who help keep millions of consumers safe and secure behind the wheel,” said Dan Ninivaggi, CEO, Federal-Mogul Motorparts. “The demand for vehicle service has never been greater, with more than 200 passenger cars per U.S. repair bay. I believe it is our responsibility as a leading manufacturer to provide the technical support and other assistance these businesses need to keep pace with each new wave of vehicle technology.”

Accessing critical diagnostic and repair information and related skills-based training has long been a challenge for the nation’s nearly 220,000 automotive repair businesses. Garage Gurus answers this need through more than 100 on-site, online and on-demand courses taught by Federal-Mogul Motorparts’ more than 100 ASE-certified “Gurus.” Each course is offered in English and Spanish. The Garage Gurus network also offers in-shop support of thousands of repair businesses through its Web-connected “Gurus-On-The-Go” product technology vans.

In addition to Greater Boston, Garage Gurus now operates comprehensive technical centers in Atlanta; Baltimore; the Bronx, New York; Chicago; Dallas/Fort Worth; Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Rancho Dominguez, California.; St. Louis; and Van Nuys, California. A facility in suburban Detroit is scheduled to open in the coming months.
