“We are very excited to open the new Ladd facility,” said Maloney, who has been in the automotive repair and tuning field for 38 years. “It allows us to move a bit closer to our long-standing customers who come to us from all over the Illinois Valley including Spring Valley (Maloney’s hometown), DePue, Princeton, LaSalle-Peru, Oglesby, Seatonville and many other towns in the area.”

In business in Cherry since 1995, Malones Repair specializes in automotive and truck brake repair/replacement, engine diagnostics, tune-ups, and suspension systems in all makes and models.

The Ladd shop is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Maloney, who can be contacted at 815-303-2967, came up with the name of his business by using his nickname of Malones. Malones Repair also has a Facebook page.
