Tune Tech was founded in 1978 at this location by Rob Williams. He started it as a Tunex franchise and eventually expanded to multiple locations throughout the Treasure Valley. In mid-1980s, Rob broke away from Tunex and renamed the business as Tune Tech. He eventually sold his ownership of the other locations and ran this Tune Tech on Fairview for many years. Almost a decade ago, Rob sold the business to long-time employee and manager Bob Brobst. Bob retired in January 2016 and the new owners — John and Pamela Hallenberger and Chris and Lindsie Bergevin — are excited to continue the commitment to excellence that has been a part of Tune Tech since the beginning.

Chris oversees the operations at Tune Tech, helping wherever is needed. He has 10 years of experience managing teams and finding efficient solutions in a variety of settings. He has a rich background in technically skilled employment, working as a hod carrier/mason, installing tile at multi-million dollar job sites, constructing homes, and more. Chris has his CDL and has experience driving semi-trucks with doubles and triples and tanker endorsements. He also worked as an operator building roads and infrastructure with front end loaders, dozers, track hoes, articulated earth-moving trucks and other heavy equipment. Chris has a passion for automobiles that started at an early age attending car shows with his family. He learned how to work on machines and fix things, first on the farm in Eastern Idaho and then at Ron’s American Car Care in Jerome, Idaho. In 2012 he started The Shop: Auto Repair and Restoration with the other Tune Tech owners. He is a certified aviation enthusiast and all-around creative mind. His first car was a 1955 Buick Roadmaster (which he still takes out for ice cream in the summers). Chris can’t pick a favorite car because there are too many to list on this page.
