History of Mackin’s Auto Body

Since 1945, we have been building it right, treating you like family. Mackin’s Auto Body is proud to be an active member of our community. Each year, Mackin’s generously donates to our local charities and is actively involved in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Every year our employees, vendors, and customers join together for fundraising events such as our annual JDRF/Mackin’s Auto Body golf tournament

Mackin’s Auto Body began as Mackin’s Automotive in September 1945 when Bob and Doris Mackin purchased the Mobil Oil Service Station on Interstate Avenue in North Portland for a mere $1,000.00. In the beginning, Bob ran the service station while Doris handled the books. After just one year, Bob and Doris hired their first employee. The following year, they purchased the service station across the street. In 1949, The Mackin’s began what would be a 10-year run in the towing business.

In 1960, Bob Mackin built Mackin’s Garage on the corner of Denver Avenue and Schofield where our North Portland location is today. Bob’s son Larry, began doing small jobs in the automotive business when he was 10 years old in 1959. His responsibilities grew over the years and by 1970 he was working full time. In 1979, he was made a partner and Mackin and Son Automotive became a reality. When Bob Mackin passed away in 2001, Larry and his wife Suzanne formed a partnership as joint owners of Mackin and Son Automotive, Inc. With the help of our valued customers, the business has grown and prospered over the years. We now employ over 125 full-time employees and have gone from the one location on Denver Avenue to a total of nine locations which includes our newest location in Cottage Grove, OR.

      Just want to say that Mackin’s did a great job on our car. Also, while it was in their shop they kept us updated on the process with convenient messages. It was finished ahead of schedule, the body work was perfectly done and the car was cleaned inside and out. Good job!

      I brought in my vehicle to repair a relatively minor door scrape/ ding. Even thought the repair was minor, I was very impressed with the coordination between Mackin’s, the insurance company, and the rental car office. Everyone one knew the details of the situation and everything was very efficiently handled. I will definitely use Mackin’s again when the need arises. Thank you for great service!!
