JM Mechanical Inc has been serving the Canby area since 1977. The business started as a one-man shop out of John's garage on the farm. People always ask what the "JM" stands for and it's simple - when John decided to start the business he needed a name so he used his initial and his wife Marsha's initial, thus getting "JM" and then he added "mechanical" to indicate that he did the mechanical repair on automobiles. In 1986, John moved the business to its present location on 99E. We now have an eleven bay shop with three ASE Certified Technicians and two office staff.
