Steve & Sylvia Booy: Owners
Steve & Sylvia opened their first auto repair shop in 1983 and haven’t looked back since. Through instilling family values, hard work and integrity, they developed Steve’s Automotive to become the largest independent auto shop in the city of Woodstock.
As the family grew, Steve, Sylvia and their 3 sons began looking to grow the business and were able to acquire this facility in January 2011. As owners, their top priority is ensuring consistent high quality workmanship and top-notch customer service are paramount in both facilities.
Dave Booy: General Manager
Dave is the oldest of Steve & Sylvia’s sons and started at age 12 as a janitor for the family business. He has held multiple positions over the years: from sweeping floors, to fixing cars, to managing operations. After managing the Woodstock location for over 6 years, he recently graduated with an MBA and is proud to carry on the family heritage as he manages this location in Hamilton.
Dave and his wife keep busy at home with their 4 young boys, and they enjoy camping, hiking and biking.
Rob Castellana: Service Manager
Growing up with a Dad who was a licensed technician, Rob has acquired incredible experience in the automotive industry over the years. He joined the founding Bullas team in 1985 and has managed this location since 1992. He enjoys relating to our clients and somehow manages to remember them by name!
When he’s not at work, Rob and his family love spending time outside and can be found at his trailer up north most summer weekends.
Harry Oldenburg: Licensed Technician
Harry is one of our longest standing employees and brings an abundance of knowledge and experience to the team. He is versatile in all aspects of auto repair and maintenance but especially enjoys alignments, brakes and steering & suspension.
When he is away from work, Harry can either be found skiing or airbrushing… depending on the season!
David Colacci: Licensed Technician
David has been licensed for over 13 years and brings a wealth of knowledge to the team. He is very strong in all aspects of auto repair & maintenance and has filled many roles over the course of his career: from apprentice, to management, to lead technician.
Away from work, David and his wife enjoy spending time on their boat… either with fishing poles or water skis. That is, of course, if the Tiger Cats aren’t playing. As a season ticket holder, David rarely misses a game!
Andrew Dube: Tire Technician & Emission Testing Inspector
Andrew is a certified Driveclean Inspector and has extensive experience with tires and rims. He brings youth and enthusiasm to the team and enjoys developing his knowledge in other mechanical aspects.
During his time away from work, Andrew enjoys spending time with his daughter. He can also be found developing strategies for his favorite board-game “Warhammer.”
