TORRINGTON, Wyo. A new mechanic and sandblasting shop opens their doors in Torrington.

Gremlin Garage and Blasting LLC works on minor and major repairs including on cars, trucks and farm equipment. They also work on tires.

The sandblasting side uses a dustless blaster. It uses water and glass to keep the metal cool and to get paint and rust off vehicles.

They also sell accessories including hats, shirts, cups, bumpers, hitches and set bars.

If they don’t have the product, they can find it.

Co-Owner Kerry Keller is from Torrington and Owner Lee Keller wanted to move out of South Carolina away from traffic.

Both Owners wanted to add something new to the area and Lee states that he has not seen another sandblasting shop within the area.

These Owners were not nervous to open a business.

They are located on 4188 U.S. Highway 26/85 in Torrington and says it is the perfect location because it is the first shop you see when leaving from Guernsey to Fort Laramie and Lingle.

These Owners state they are happy with all of the support they have received.

“It means a lot to me just because they are actually getting the word out there about us opening up and trying to support local businesses,” said Lee Keller, Owner, Handles Sandblasting.

“I like to thank the Chamber for what they have done and our family,” said Kerry Keller, Co-Owner, Handles Mechanics. “Without the support of our family, we wouldn’t be able to do this.”

Gremlin Garage and Blasting LLC is open Monday through Friday from 8:00am to 5:00pm.

If you want to contact them, you can call (307) 575-0858 or find them on Facebook by searching Gremlin Garage and Blasting LLC.
