Kirberg Motors, Inc. was founded by Juergen Kirberg on May 1, 1967, in San Francisco. Juergen was the west coast factory representative for Porsche until the factory operations were merged with Volkswagen of America. Starting in a basement location on Sacramento Street and later moving to a larger facility on Fillmore Street, Kirberg Motors thrived for sixteen years. Operations moved to the new location in Belmont in 1983.
Juergen’s son, Ralph, joined the company in 1978. After many summers working under the watchful eye of the working technicians, a career in the automotive industry was a natural. Together father and son ran the business for several years, prior to and after the move to the present location in Belmont. Juergen retired from day-to-day operations in 1995.
Ralph Kirberg opened the doors to the new Kirberg Motors April 1, 1983 and built a new customer base that expects quality service and repair in a prompt and timely fashion. The products and services are designed to make one-stop shopping possible. Offering purchase consultation in addition to all mechanical and maintenance repairs, convenience and efficiency is a daily priority.
Kirberg Motors was one of the first Bosch Authorized Service Centers in the United States. The commitment to staying ahead of the ever-changing technology in the automotive industry is of the highest importance.
Kirberg Motors is featured in the latest edition of the Consumer Checkbook.
