ABOUT US

OUR history:

Koop’s Service was established in 1995 at the original location of 114 Government Road, Black Diamond. Father and son, Gene and Shane Koopman ran the shop as Koop’s continued to grow and change.

As the business grew, a larger facility was required and the current location at 309 Government Road became the new home for Koop’s Full Service. This site included a gas station and convenience store as well as the auto repair and tire shop.

 

In 2008, the fuel tanks were removed and fuel sales came to an end so we could dedicate our time and energy to client care. Koop’s is now a full service automotive shop, concentrating on what we do best – diagnostics and repair. Red Seal Journeymen Service Technicians work with us and we also have Apprentice Technicians, Tire Technicians and Service Writers.

FAMILY owned:

 

Koop’s is and has always been a family owned and operated business.

Behind our counter and under our hoists are a dedicated group of people. Koopman or not, we are all part of the family at Koop’s.

From our modest beginnings, to what Koop’s has become and looking to the future, our bays are always open. Come by and see what we can do for you and your vehicle.

From our family to yours,

Gene & Dianne Koopman; Shane, Mel & Stetson Koopman

Since 1995, Shane has been building and guiding the business side of Koop’s Service. His vision from the start has been to create a small-town automotive shop offering unparalleled service and quality.

Not from the area but a local now, Shane shares his community spirit through the support of local events and groups. He spends his off time coaching his son’s various sporting activities and dirt biking with family and friends.

Melodie joined the Koop’s family when she married Shane in 2004. She took over administrative duties soon after their son Stetson was born.

Melodie trained in business and was successful in the oil industry before taking on her current roles as a busy mother and local business woman. Melodie is an avid dirt biker and loves to bike with family and friends on the weekends.
