Atelier Automotive is a new independent repair facility in Gallup, New Mexico which opened July 29, 2019. The owner, Ernest Matamorez, former General Manager of Tate's Auto Group in Gallup, started the company to give jobs to his former employees when they lost their jobs due to the closing of Tate's Auto. This company was built out of a dream, to provide livelihood to its employees as well as high quality auto service in the community at an affordable price. Atelier is starting to get off the ground as soon as loyal and satisfied former customers found out about its opening. This business deserves a recognition for starting a company that puts people first before profit. Mr. Matamorez understands the quality of life in Gallup for the Navajo community which is why he dedicated the business for the people.
