About St. Matthews Imports

In 1969, two brothers and their close friend decided to leave their roots in eastern Kentucky and move to Louisville to build a better life and a brighter future. This dream began with pairing a small business loan and their expertise on Volkswagen repair. Their success in automotive repair in Louisville grew and quickly established a reputation for the city’s top choice for high-quality repair. Today, more than 45 years later, the St. Matthews Imports brand has grown to four locations with expertise in auto repair, collision, and marine repair and sales. We continue to be a family-owned and operated company with the second generation in full control of business operations.
