Meet Galand

Galand Niccoli, is a 4th Generation Crested Butte Local.  The Niccoli family has many years of adding to the rich history of Crested Butte. The first Niccoli's immigrated to the town of Crested Butte from Northern Italy and Austria in the late 1800's, where they homesteaded the land, opened one of the first grocery stores, worked in the coal mines and ranched.

As the son of a rancher, Galand was put to work on the family ranch fixing tractors and other ranch equipment at a very early age. This ultimately led to his love of automobiles and passion for finding out how things work.


Galand began his professional training at WyoTech, a Forbes top 30 Two Year Vocational School, and in 2008 he graduated with specialty certifications in Advanced Diesel Technology, Chassis Fabrication, and an Associates degree in Applied Service Management. 

Galand has 18 years of professional experience in diesel and automotive repairs, but truly a lifetime of experience with his up bringing.
