Our mission is to change the reputation of the collision repair industry one great experience at a time.
Melanie and I first started thinking about owning our own collision repair business in 1998. For two years, we operated out of a home-based business doing the repair work in our one car garage. I was still employed full-time as a repair specialist at another company, so we worked in the evening and on the weekends to gradually build our business. We did insurance work, re-builders, and some sub-contract work for the area collision businesses.
In the fall of 1999, with a vision of building a new building for our business, Melanie and I bought an unimproved lot on the corner of Main and Roxanna Streets in Morrill. After saving up enough startup funds, we bought initial tools and equipment, had the water and sewer lines installed, and leveled the lot in the summer and fall of 2000. Construction on the building started in the spring of 2001 and on June 25, 2001 the new building was open for business.
It is our desire that everyone who entrusts us to repair their vehicle will be 100% satisfied and will share their experience with family and friends. With that in mind we decided to expand our shop and upgrade our equipment.
In August of 2008 we began dirt work for a 3,240sq. foot building addition. Later that fall we poured the foundation, and by November they had the walls up and it was all enclosed.
We are committed to a high standard of workmanship and service. So along with the new addition also came a new and better paint booth, compatible with the level of quality we desire to maintain. The booth is a top-of-the-line AFC quad-draft paint booth, featuring a heated air make-up unit. The new booth was installed in December, 2008 and January, 2009. When we switched booths we also switched from solvent-based to water-based paint. These two things were huge steps for our shop to becoming more environmentally friendly.
We continue to stay informed on repair procedures to meet and exceed insurance requirements and to stay ahead of the EPA regulations. We will continue I-CAR training and maintain PPG certifications so our shop will always provide high quality repairs.
In addition to our family of five, we have a young part-time employee, Jared Millsap from Morrill and two full-time employees, Greg Dettmann from Falls City, Nebraska and Shavaun Vernon from Bendena, KS, who share our commitment to excellence in our service to you.
