Douglas F

Douglas began his career as an apprentice at a small, family owned workshop in North Geelong. Working on all makes and model vehicles, he gained invaluable knowledge that included servicing as well as diagnostics and mechanical repairs.

Wanting to develop his skill set, and focus more on diagnostics and the cause of mechanical faults, Douglas progressed his career to Advanced Service Centre in Grovedale. Through his employment at Advanced, he learned how to identify more complex mechanical issues and worked towards resolving the issues that would arise.

Fermie then progressed to Geelong West Automotive specialising in Volvo, Peugeot, Renault and Citroen. Through this, he gained expansive skills in a wide range of European made vehicles that he would soon put to use in the development of his own business.

In 2018, Douglas founded Affirmative Auto initially as a mobile mechanic, before finding a home for the business on Torquay Road in Grovedale.

Over the course of the next few years, the business quickly outgrew it's premise on Torquay Road. Affirmative Auto moved into a brand new premise in September 2021, located in Lewalan Street, Grovedale - just around the corner!
