About Morin Diesel

From his beginnings as a little kid owner Jesse Morin grew up helping out at his family’s land clearing business to maintain and repair a large fleet of trucks and equipment. This upbringing brought on a love of working on trucks and large equipment that he would later turn into a fulltime career.

In 2003 at only the age of 25 he decided open his own shop and work for himself. It was a scary start but with a lot of long days and a strong commitment to customer service he carved out a name for himself in the industry. Fast forward to present day now at 40 years old and Morin Diesel is a thriving business located in Portland, CT that occupies a beautiful new 14,000sqft repair facility set on a 3.5 acre piece of property on Route 66.

We strive to stay current with technology which means a healthy investment in factory diagnostic software, we do not use aftermarket systems. We feel this gives us an edge on the competition along with our factory trained technicians. We are more than just an engine shop though, we perform electrical diagnostics and repairs, chassis and suspension repairs, PM services, air conditioning service, Federal Annual Inspections, body installs, tires, custom modifications to suit customer needs and also custom build trucks.

The equipment used in our shop is state of the art. Our technology assists in repairing your vehicles as quickly and efficiently as possible. Our information system provides technical vehicle repair and maintenance information which is continuously updated.

We track all our repairs and maintenance in our shop management system to provide us easy access to all your vehicles maintenance and repair history. We use this information to assist you with your fleet needs and decisions.

The services and maintenance that we recommend and perform are intended to help reduce the overall cost and trouble free operation of your fleet.

In 2016 we added on to our services to help better provide for our customers and be more of a one stop shop. Hunter Engineering provided us with 2 new alignment machines, one to handle cars through light/ medium duty trucks and a second one to handle medium duty through class 8 trucks. If it goes down the road we can align it. We then saw a need to help our customers bring their trucks and equipment in to be repaired so we purchased a 7 axle truck and lowbed trailer capable of hauling over 100,000lbs and a second tandem axle rollback to help transport the smaller units.

From pickup trucks to large construction equipment the 14 person team at Morin Diesel is committed to getting you back to work as quickly as possible. Don’t forget we do work on more than just diesel!

We are a full service diesel repair facility conveniently located at 1587 Portland-Cobalt Rd in Portland, CT 06480. We offer free estimates, reliable and accurate service. If we can be of service please call us at 860-342-2600.
