About AML

Since 1960, AML has been hard at work keeping Toronto’s cars safely on the road.

It was in September of that year that Art French, a young, talented mechanic, and his wife Alice, a trained and experienced bookkeeper, put their names together to coin the title for their dream: Artenal Motors. Integrity, hard work and long hours were the backbone of their new business, providing means to raise their five children as well as earn the loyalty and respect of their increasing clientele.

Art & Rica

Art French - President/Owner

Art is the second-generation owner of AML, having started working with his dad in the early 70’s, in a time when emission controls were still in their infancy. This was a transitional period in the trade, with electronics soon to start taking hold of the automotive industry. Learning and developing diagnostic skills became a passion of Art’s and has remained so throughout his career. Art still helps where he’s needed in the shops and remains as passionate as ever, although he now focuses his passion more on developing younger technicians and building the business to offer clients and employees the best experience possible in automotive service.

Rica French - Secretary/Treasurer

Rica started working with her husband Art in the mid-80’s as our customer service specialist. Easy-going and easy to talk to, Rica became a favorite of customers and employees. She still helps with customer service and speaks with team members daily, at the same time keeping up with the company financials.
