Our owner, Tony Urbon is originally from Hoosick Falls, NY, just over the Vermont state line. He attended local schools and Hudson Valley Community College. He graduated in June 1974 with an Associate’s Degree in auto mechanics.
Tony worked at area dealerships including Bennington Ford, Scot Mazda, Morrison Sales and Service and Hand Chevrolet in Manchester for approximately fifteen years. He is experienced in all areas of auto repair and proper maintenance.
Tony and his wife Karen began Urbon Transmission in 1990 in Bennington. The original location was a bay at B&B Auto Repair on the North Bennington Rd. In 1991, they were able to purchase their own building in North Hoosick, NY., where they remained until 2008.
After returning from Florida in 2013, Tony and Karen opened their current shop in Bennington just a stone’s throw from their original location.
Tony is Master Certified in all areas of mechanical repair. We are members of Transgo, which is a national engineering and research group focusing on transmission problem solving. We also have the latest online technology (manufacturer specs, technical service bulletins, and recalls) and access to nationwide tech line support.
