North Country Auto Body and Mechanical in Hugo, MN, is now being run by a new partnership.  

Owner Galen Carlson and longtime employee Mark Aanenson started a partnership so Carlson can eventually retire. The two say Carlson’s phase-out process from the business at Hwy. 61 and 140th Street will be a slow one.

 

Eventually, they will hire a painter to take Aanenson’s job so he can focus on learning from Carlson. 

 

Carlson said even when he is gone, he will continue to make his presence known. 

 

“I am still going to stroll through because I like this place, I like the guys, I just like it,” Carlson said. 

 

The two partners want to make it clear to their customers that even though leadership is changing, the business and its customer-first mentality will not change. 

 

“It’s still what it used to be and we will continue to strive to be better,” Aanenson said. 

 

The two partners have slogans that fit the customer-first value the business has. 

 

Aanenson’s slogan is “endless pursuit of lifelong customers.” 

 

“Leave your keys and be at ease,” is Carlson’s slogan. The slogan is on the “thank you” note they leave in finished cars for customers.
