Our History

Towne Body Shop's History


Towne Body Shop has family-owned and operated since 1952 by the Salito’s. After 25 years in existence, Pat and Carla Patterson purchased the business to fulfill a life-long dream – provide exceptional customer service, high-quality auto repairs, and incredible support every step of the way.

As the business grew so did the shop. Building additions were made to enhance our customer’s experience and accommodate state-of-the-art equipment.

We currently offer a 6,200 square-foot body shop with 13 repair bays fully equipped with the latest tools, technology, and skills to repair your vehicle back to its original condition.

Towne Body Shop is a Gold Class® service provider maintaining the highest industry standards of knowledge and training. This prestigious designation is awarded by I-CAR®, a not-for-profit training organization dedicated to consumer safety.
