Carl Owens, Sr. first began doing paint and body work in his back yard in 1965. The business has grown to a facility that spans several acres of land with two large body shops and a paint shop that houses six paint booths. In our body shops, we have a Bee Line lazer alignment machine that is able to do 3 axle alignments on tractors and trailers and a Truck Grabber frame machine that is able to push or pull 50 tons and is one of the largest and best frame machines in the state. In our paint/refinish area we have two car booths, one small items booth, one 65' booth, one 35' booth and our own Sherwin Williams paint mixing station. With this mixing station, we are able to mix an ounce of paint matched to any possible color calculated exactly by a high-powered computer and camera system. We also use various brands of industrial paint such as Dupont, Jones Blair, and others to match OE truck refinishes and industrial company colors.
