Meet the faces of Auto AC of Tucson
The new owners of Auto AC of Tucson, Leo and Kathy Yonash, ran a body and mechanical shop for over 30 years in Wisconsin before moving to Tucson. Kathy was hired by the previous owner of this location as their Business Manager in 2017. When the location came up for sale in 2018, Kathy and Leo were able to acquire the location in order to a decades-old tradition and continue serving the Tucson area automotive heating and air conditioning needs. So, while the name of the company may be new, the employees are the same, so you will still experience the same great service you have come to expect from this location.
