Futrell Autowerks Inc. was founded in May of 2001 by company frontman and CEO; Dean Futrell. The original company goal was to provide our local area with a service no one else readily offered Ė Engine Conversions, an example would be a MK2 VR6 swap. Initially that was all we really did, motor swap, after motor swap, it was fun for awhile but we were limited to how many cars we could work on and the thing was when you build a car with used parts, you still have a old car with used parts, things can and will go wrong (and they did). We pretty much ended up with this core group of cars we constantly worked on, in 2003 the opportunity arose to join APRís distributor network. We jumped on this opportunity and instantly began tuning and upgrading late model Audis and Volkswagens. These customerís needed a place to also have their regular service work performed at and we decided to expand into full service by 2004. We quickly outgrew our original location on Nicholas Ct. in Hillsboro and moved into the shop side of our current facility in October of 2005. Our customer base continued to grow and an opportunity we could not pass up arose to take over the entire Western wing of our building in summer of 2007. We now have over 12,000 sq. feet of service shop, waiting area, showroom and office space, one of the largest non-dealership owned independent service centers of our kind.
