Owners Luke and Elora Carlson opened LOC Auto & Weld in August 2023, located at 1503 Cloquet Avenue (former Pete and Son’s). LOC Auto and Weld offers all automotive services from bumper to bumper, except for alignments and air conditioning, and can order tires (they don’t stock them). They aim to provide quality, affordable, trustworthy services explaining customer options. They also offer welding services. Luke used to work at Ziegler Caterpillar of Duluth, where he gained welding and heavy equipment experience. “Welding is a big opportunity and service that we uniquely provide,” said Carlson. While we were onsite, they had the dunk tank from the Third Base in Carlton, which needed welding repairs.
Growing up, his dad lived in Cloquet, and his Mom lived in Duluth, and he and his wife now live in Scanlon with two small children. At a young age, he was exposed to automotive repair services and loved the work. He wanted to begin owning a business to provide a positive customer experience.
“It was a lot of detailed work for us to start and launch our business. We worked closely with the Northland Small Business Development Center in Duluth, our bank, and are here and open to offering you services now!” Elora
