About The Swedish Mechanic, Inc.
Stefan Braun, owner of The Swedish Mechanic, has spent over 30 years working on cars. Stefan grew up in Sweden, the birthplace of Scandinavia's two most notable exports, the Volvo and SAAB automobile. He spent many years repairing these cars in Sweden.
Stefan's experience with the automotive industry shifted gears once he entered the sport of professional racing. After successfully earning several European championships, and breaking many racing records, Stefan turned his eyes towards even greater challenges and took the step across the Atlantic to try to conquer the US racing circuit. In 1996, Stefan found himself with a class record as well as many other achievements warranting an early retirement from the sport!
Soon after retiring, the decision was made to open an auto repair facility in Irvine, California to service SAAB and Volvo owners in the area.
The Swedish Mechanic was born in 1997.
