Locally Owned & Operated Auto Repair & Transmission Service

Long before he took ownership of Aarrow Transmission and Automotive, Roy Bordner had a knack for fixing cars. While growing up nearby in Sandston, Roy began helping out at the repair shop owned by his father and his great-uncle. And by the time he was a teenager, Roy had already learned how to rebuild transmissions.

After several years as a successful transmission rebuilder and auto technician, Roy took over as manager of the Aarrow location on Research Road in south Richmond. Then, in 2002, Roy became co-owner of the Aarrow location on Pouncey Tract Road in the West End. In 2017, Roy became the sole owner of both Aarrow locations.

Roy and Laurie are committed to giving back to the community. Some of the local organizations they support are FeedMore of Central Virginia, YMCA of Greater Richmond, Hockey Fights Hunger, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia, Lab Rescue of Greater Richmond, and the Richmond SPCA.
