Auto Lab Libertyville Owner and Founder Kevin Riddick

Kevin Riddick | Auto Lab Owner & Founder

Kevin, the Owner & Founder of Auto Lab, discovered he liked repairing cars when he was just a teenager.

In 1981, he began working as an Automotive Technician, transitioning from a hobbyist into a professional and earning his ASE Master Technician status along the way. He also received formal training from Triton College in Melrose Park, IL.

After six years as an Automotive Technician, Kevin bought a Snap-on tools franchise and began to save for his own auto repair shop. In 1994, I opened Auto Lab at its current location on Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville, and the company grew steadily through the years, picking up the pace in the mid 2000s. Since then Auto Lab has grown to be a trusted shop for its community. Kevin and his team work to provide fair pricing and great repair for all their customers.

In his free time, Kevin rides motorcycles and scuba dives—all over the world. He particularly enjoys shipwreck diving and, one day, looks forward to diving into the Red Sea in Egypt and touring the Valley of the Kings. He also drives a 1970 Olds 442 convertible, which he bought when he was 17 years old.
