a bit about us

time to meet the team!

In the Beginning:

Economy Radiator was founded in 1981 and was Valley Park's only radiator and heater core repair shop. In 1995 we started offering general service repair to the community. In 2007 we changed our name to Economy Car Care Center and became a full service auto repair shop to meet the needs of our customers.

The Economy tradition builds on 30 years of excellence serving the West County area and is commited to providing first class auto repair.

Marc Pemberton



Marc Pemberton started his career at 16 years old. Marc took every shop class in high school that he could. Growing up and having an understanding of automobiles, it was easy to see how auto repair shops were taking advantage of his family. It was at that point Marc decided to make a difference in the auto repair industry. After graduating high school, he went on to get his auto mechanics degree at Herkimer County Community College. He later went to Hudson Valley Community College where he earned an Associate Degree in Occupational Studies. Marc is ASE certified in cars, heavy duty trucks and an ASE certified service consultant. Marc is a licensed Missouri state vehicle safety and emission inspector. He now owns an auto repair shop where honesty and integrity are his 2 greatest assets.
