In 1969 an enthusiastic entrepreneur by the name of Sig Raethke opened the doors to MBI Motors. Sig took the initiative and his good business sense to a whole new level by starting one of the first and finest independent Mercedes-Benz repair facilities that remains in full operation today.


In January of 2010, Corbin Lancaster and Debra Pannu made the long trip from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to Portland, Oregon to take over the operations at MBI Motors. Corbin has over 30 years of Mercedes Benz experience, working at Mercedes Benz of Fort Lauderdale and owning his own Mercedes-Benz and BMW repair shop as well.
