Where it All Began
Scan Automotive was founded in North Vancouver by Swedish-Canadian brothers Andy and Chris Haglund, who derived the company name from their proud Scandinavian heritage. Andy was a Porsche / VW / Audi dealership technician looking to establish something better than what customers were receiving in the dealership environment. Chris was a devout Volvo and VW enthusiast and the two put their vision into practice in its original location on East Esplanade Avenue.
A New Home
Scan Automotive moves to its current location on East 3rd Street. With it’s steady growth and expansion, the company gets some new room to work with.
Building the Team
The core of Scan Automotive is established, as our lead technician, James Noon, begins his apprenticeship under Andy Haglund’s tutelage, and brings his friend, and present-day owner, James Daniels in to manage the daily operations of the business as the company grows.
A New Direction
The shop facility expands to double its original size. Shop Manager, James Daniels becomes the new owner of Scan Automotive and furthers the development of the company into the best-equipped independent service shop for Porsche vehicles in the province.
