Sal the Owner of Kinetech Motor Werkes
SAL CARACCI
Owner & Founder Since 2013
ASE Certified Master Technician Jim attended UTI concentrating his studies on European Automotive Repair

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.
