Established in 1974
Clayton’s Auto Repair & Service started in a small location in South Corvallis. Clayton put himself through the LBCC Auto Program while working days to provide for his
family. The business was founded on the ideal of trust and honesty. Throughout the years the business grew and moved to the present location. Clayton believed in the education of his
technicians, along with the proper equipment, as a way to bring the best service to his customers. Although Clayton is retired, the company was sold to a long term employee, and his
philosophies still resound through the business today.
