About Us

Owners of Phillips Automotive & Performance, Inc. and Phillips Hot Rod & Customs, Inc.
Mike and Stacy Phillips

Phillips Automotive and Performance is owned and operated by Mike Phillips, an ASE-certified master technician. He is also a certified master technician with multiple manufacturers, including Nissan and Hyundai. With over 25 years’ experience in the automotive field, Mike has been the head technician for both independent vehicle repair shops and dealerships.

In 2010, Mike was tired of working in the typical dealership environment that encourages technicians to sell unwarranted work. He opened Phillips Automotive and Performance with the promise to always stay honest to his customers and maintain a family owned, mom-and-pop-style business yet continue to provide quality work that is above and beyond the industry standard.

Since then, Mike has expanded the shop with several more ASE-certified technicians. Altogether, the technicians at Phillips Automotive and Performance have a combined 73+ years of experience in the automotive industry. In our 12,000-square-foot facility, we service all manufacturers’ vehicles, from cars, trucks (light, medium, and heavy duty), motorcycles, and trailers.

Not only are we a 100% full-service auto-repair shop, we are also a Full Fabrication Shop, Performance Shop, Restoration Shop and Coachbuilder. Phillips Hot Rod & Customs is also located at our Downingtown, Chester County, PA location. We build everything from custom hot rods and race cars to hand made coachbuilt aluminum body’s.
