Welcome to Pristal’s Automotive, your premier auto repair shop in Tomball, TX. We are dedicated to providing exceptional service and automotive expertise to our valued customers. Allow us to introduce ourselves and share our story.
Pristal’s Automotive opened its doors on October 1st, 2003, under the leadership of Albino Herrera. Albino, fueled by his curiosity and passion for understanding how things worked, started tinkering with vehicles and machinery from a young age. His journey into the auto repair business began while he was still in high school when he joined the local Tomball Texaco at the age of 15, where he gained hands-on experience performing oil changes, tire work, and other automotive tasks.
After graduating from Tomball High School in 1992, Albino pursued his passion further by enrolling at Wyoming Technical Institute. In 1993, he graduated with an Associates of Applied Science degree in Business Management and Automotive Technology, solidifying his knowledge and skills in the field. Following his education, Albino honed his expertise by working at three highly regarded repair facilities in the Tomball, Spring, and Cypress areas from 1993 to 2003. Starting as a technician, he worked his way up to the position of shop foreman, gaining valuable experience and a deep understanding of the industry.
In 2003, Albino fulfilled his lifelong dream and established Pristal’s Automotive Inc. as a trusted, family-owned, and operated automotive service and repair shop. Since its inception, the shop has remained under Albino’s dedicated ownership, ensuring that the core values of integrity, honesty, and proper diagnostics continue to be at the forefront of our services.

Beyond the world of auto repair, Albino enjoys spending his spare time team roping. This hobby allows him to unwind and recharge, ensuring that he brings a fresh perspective and renewed enthusiasm to his work.
Family holds a special place in Albino’s heart, and their support and encouragement have been instrumental in his journey. Pristal’s Automotive is proud to be a family-owned and operated business, and we extend that sense of warmth and care to each customer who walks through our doors.
