Bob is the owner of Sioux Valley Automotive, formally Knaack’s Body Shop Inc. He serves as the main service advisor and also helps in the shop as needed. In 2011, Bob took over the business from Gaylen Knaack. Except for a few years, he had been an auto body technician with the business since 1990.
In 2016, Karmen joined her husband, Bob, at Sioux Valley Automotive. Since she grew up in a family owned automotive repair shop it was a natural fit for her. Karmen’s main role is the office manager but she also helps out in many other areas.
Dom began with us part time as a work study student who helped with a little bit of everything. We were very happy when he decided to stay on with us full time as one of our automotive technicians. He doesn’t have much to say but his thorough work speaks for itself.
Cody joined us in 2017 as our full time automotive technician and has found his niche as our alignment guy. But he is so much more than that. He also does DOT inspections along brake work, oil changes, and many other things. He has been an awesome addition to our team.
Donnie is our newest team member. He joined us in 2020 as a body shop technician and painter. Although he is new to our team he is not new to the industry. His experience in the body shop industry goes back over 30 years.
Our auto body technician, Shane, joined us in 2014, was gone for a few months and then rejoined us in 2016. He has been with us ever since. With over 35 years experience in the industry, he is a great asset and we our proud to have him on board.
