As the owner of AIS I would like to take a few minutes of your time and introduce my staff. I'll start with myself. Born in 1954 growing up in the 60's I never got to be a hippie. My Dad believed in hard work and more hard work! After all the hard work I volunteered the draft in the early 70's. Spent six years in the U.S. Army, were I learned even more about hard work and discipline. After the Army I worked for the State of Ohio as a Correctional Officer. Between the Military and the Prison system I learned a lot about people. I learned how to communicate with a wide range of people. Since working on cars has always been a passion of mine, I left the Prison system for a job manufacturing cars. This allowed me several years of experience diagnosing production problems and resolving them through feedback. I decided to utilize this knowledge in a business of my own. I invest in my business by taking the time to attend seminars, the information learned, is invaluable to my clients.
