Owner & Founder Since 2013
Sal Caracci is the founder of Kinetech Motor Werkes. As a second generation BMW mechanic and the son of Italian immigrants, Sal has always had an interest in automobiles, specifically BMW’s as well as other German automobiles.
Born and raised in the Hudson Valley area of Westchester County, New York Sal is the middle child to Salvatore and Giselda Caracci. As a child, Sal’s mother would take he and his two siblings to visit their father at his mechanic shop. Being exposed to this environment contributed heavily to the passion that lives on today.
Sal was never a great student and thought it would be best to learn a skilled trade as opposed to going the traditional 4 year college route. While taking an auto body repair class as a senior in high school, a poster of a BMW on the classroom wall caught Sal’s attention on the first day. This was an advertisement for Universal Technical Institute (UTI). Immediately, the need to find out more had become an obsession. Sal contacted the UTI offices and arranged for a recruiter to visit his High School. His mind was made up, this would be the path to his future. With his parents blessing, Sal enrolled for fall ‘01 classes at UTI’s Glendale Heights, IL campus, located in the suburbs of Chicago. As chance would have it there was a BMW dealership located 1 mile from Sal’s new home in Schaumburg, IL. He visited the dealership twice a week for the next 12 weeks asking about opportunities to join the team as an entry level employee. In January of 2002, everything changed when an offer to become a part-time General Service / Lot porter was extended and Sal accepted. After Graduation from UTI, as an entry level technician Sal worked for various BMW/ MINI COOPER dealership / service centers.
In 2013 there was a feeling that Sal had that had not been felt in a long time; it was the feeling that Sal could own and operate his own repair shop. Offering dealership level service on a more personalized platform while focusing on what the customer needs, would be the foundation for a new business to be born. Kinetech Motor Werkes was formed.
Today, Sal lives in Wesley Chapel, North Carolina with his wife and two children. One of Sal’s favorite things to do, is cooking for friends and family. He also has a passion for educating vehicle owners about the importance of car care and knowing about auto repair. Sal is a passionate, hard working and fast paced individual that feels blessed and honored by every customer that chooses to have their vehicle serviced by he and his team at Kinetech Motor Werkes. Sal’s mission is to provide honest, quality work at a fair price and provide exceptional value.
I have been a MINI customer since 2008. Coincidentally I have known the guys at Kinetech just as long. They give me honest estimates and prompt service. I can share with great confidence that I can rely on Kinetech Motor Werkes to take excellent care of myself and all my friends and family that I send their way for my automotive service and repair needs.
Kinetech Motor Werkes is truly one of the best automotive service shops in the area! As someone who has been dealing in luxury automobiles for over 2 decades, I’ve dealt with many of the shops including the franchised dealers for our service and repair needs. These guys are extremely knowledgeable and more importantly trustworthy! The diagnostics and quotes are very accurate and reasonable. Above all the delivery is always on time and “as promised”! Next time you’re in need of service for your vehicle, reach out to KMW and I promise you won’t be disappointed and more than likely will become a regular!
Kinetech Motor Werkes and its owner Sal are a great destination for EuroCar repairs. Always very clear on the required repairs, providing complete information. Pricing is reasonable and competitive and service is quick and efficient.
After multiple experiences with Sal and the team, I can easily recommend KMW. Thanks!
I have used Kinetech Motor Werkes twice and I have nothing but good things to say about it. The most recent visit, Sal and his team went above and beyond to finish my son’s car ahead of schedule because my son was going out of town. Customer service done right.
Unicorns, Santa Claus, and honest mechanics…I trust Sal. He did me a solid on parts, he knows his trade, and along with the office staff, he provided an all-around excellent experience. I highly recommend Kinetech Motor Werkes.
I am so happy that l found this place. If only the other busineses l deal with could this accomadating, the world would be a better place. You get updates before every task is performed on your car. They look for the cause of the problem so your car can be fixed correctly, the first time. And that is a wonderful feeling knowing that you don’t have to bring it back for the same problem, again. Thank you for doing it right the first time.
