Owner Tony Berrien is an experienced mechanic who grew up in Kailua and has been working on cars since 1972. He started Tonys Autowerks in 2009, a year after the Great Recession claimed his job at a local dealership.
The drive to start his own business happened after Tony consulted with his pastor and church board members for advice about where to take his next steps in life. They encouraged entrepreneurship. Shortly after, he founded Tonys Autowerks alongside his wife, Diana. The word autowerks is German for “car factory” and a reminder of Tony’s time fixing European cars.
The original Tonys Autowerks was located out of the family home garage. However, Tony and Diana had another challenge ahead: the home landlord needed them to move.
That meant finding both a new home and a new business location at the same time. Around this time, an industrial space opened nearby. It didn’t have electricity, but it looked like it could be transformed into an automotive service center. Tony consulted with his pastor, who agreed it could work as an auto repair shop.
Tonys Autowerks has been located at 905 Kalanianaole Hwy Bldg 2905 E, Kailua, HI 96734 ever since. It’s where you’ll find Tony, Diana, and their team providing a variety of automotive services for motorists and their families.
