Jackson Collision Center, an auto body repair and paint shop in Jackson, GA, celebrated new ownership with a ribbon-cutting event on Oct. 25. New owner Barry Kenney recently bought the shop from his brother. Kenney has spent the past 26 years working at his brother’s shop, repairing and restoring cars from the 1930s to 2012 models.
“I treat everybody’s car like it’s mine,” he said.
Kenney said he recently decided it was time he branch out with his own business, so he bought Jackson Collision from his brother. He said he’s looking to expand the business.
The shop does everything from repairing small dents and dings, to more extensive work.
“And if you’ve got a train wreck, we can help there too. We’ve got the equipment to handle pretty much anything,” Kenney said.
The shop also mixes its own custom paint and can install window tint.
Kenney, along with his wife Kelly, and children Shelby, 10, Anna, 11, and C.J., 9, currently call Pike County home, but enjoy Jackson Lake.
