About HMI

it all


Get to Know Us Better...

In 1997 Chris & Jenna Fromal moved to rural NC from the DC area with the dream of creating a small business that would support their young family.  US Army Veteran, Chris has been an accomplished technician for over 30 years, beginning his training in the military, and expanding his credentials working as a leading mechanic with Caterpillar on heavy equipment. With a degree in business, Chris always dreamed of having his own shop. So, after having shopped the Maryland real estate market, the Fromals relocated to NC, and  downsized to working on autos, specializing in European imports.  

After having been in Halifax for nearly 3 decades, HMI has become known as the exclusive import repair facility in the larger part of a 60+ mile area radiating from Halifax.

Chris continues to work on site daily, and maintains an ASE Master Tech Certification.

"Such great customer service! HMI was super helpful when my car needed a service and very easy to work with. Will definitely be visiting again!!"☺️
"I recently took in my 2018 Maserati GranTurismo to get a state inspection. A friend had recommended me to give HMI a try so I did. They recommended me to get an oil change for a decent price so of course I accepted the offer which did not take long at all. The employees were very friendly and easy talking with. I would recommend friends and family to give HMI a visit for their car needs. Overall it was a great experience."
