The History of CAMS Automotive Services

Hi, my name is Stephen Beatty and I am the owner of Collision and Mechanical Specialist (CAMS). We opened our doors for the first time on August 15, 1992.  

At a young age, I decided I wanted to own my own shop. Like a lot of kids back then I had a car that needed a lot of repairs. I did not have the money to fix it, so I started working at a friends uncle’s shop as a helper after school. Eventually, I became a full technician at some local shops and auto dealerships while I saved up money to open my own shop. After years of hard work and saving the time finally came to make the leap. 

Even with all my planning it was a scary and risky move that I wouldn’t have been able to do with out the AMAZING love and support of my wife, Laura. It wasn’t always easy but we always found a way to make it work. 

I love that everyday I get to help old and new friends keep their vehicles running safely! For most people a vehicle is their 2nd biggest investment and it is what you use to transport your loved ones. I take a lot of pride in the trust people have in CAMS to keep their vehicles operating safely.

If you need an automotive shop you can trust, come to CAMS. We treat you like family!
