Get to Know the St. Paul Truck & Auto Repair Shop That Can Keep You on the Road

Doug Drolet opened B & D Industrial Service in 1981 with the goal of helping St. Paul truck drivers and heavy equipment operators keep their vehicles safely on the road. Over the course of 35+ years in business, our shop has grown to work on all types of domestic and import autos as well as trucks, plus we offer automotive and heavy-duty towing. At B & D, we love helping others and working alongside one another. Doing truck and auto repair well provides a great feeling of accomplishment at the end of the day because we know we’re making a positive difference in people’s lives.

“It’s the people that make working in the truck and auto repair industry rewarding—our mechanics, staff, and customers.” - Doug, Owner
