After nearly a year building their new state-of-the-art facility in Southern Utah, Red Rock Collision Repair & Auto Painting is expected to open on November 1, 2014.
“We’re planning to be a one-stop shop for everything,” said Josh Borrowman, the general manager of the company. The 16,000 square foot collision repair and painting facility will be located at 765 N. Red Rock Road in St. George, UT. In addition, they are opening a 6,000 square foot mechanical shop on site as well as Red Rock Towing.
Since founding Red Rock Collision Repair & Auto Painting in January, the company has operated out of a temporary location in St. George at 1275 E. Red Hills Pkwy.
Mike Keetch, the owner of the company, managed MAACO Collision Repair & Auto Painting in St. George for the last 10 years prior to starting Red Rock. Keetch has also owned an auto dealership, Approved Auto Sales, in the area for the last four years. With 25 years of experience in the auto body and paint industry, Keetch opened his new company with two distinct departments to differentiate between the types of services provided.
The collision repair center offers factory–to-match collision repair using industry best practice repair methods, OEM parts and experienced technicians, who will be I-CAR certified.
Borrowman, who worked with Keetch for the last 10 years, said they are expanding their business to include trucking companies and fleet vehicles because they noticed the increased demand.
“What makes us unique is that we’re going to have the only downdraft truck booth in all of Southern Utah,” said Borrowman. They will also have a downdraft car booth and laser frame rack.
Red Rock will offer customers multiple paint lines and options, varying from cost-effective single-stage Urethane to premium commercial fleet paint. He said the goal is to cater to a wider market to meet everyone’s needs. “Currently there is no option for customers to get their whole car painted unless they want to spend $4,000 to $5,000,” he said.
Borrowman said their team takes pride in offering customers good prices and quality, guaranteeing all of their repairs and paint jobs. “We’ve never once turned anyone away,” he said.
His advice to other shops is to “build good, solid relationships and you’ll never run out of business.”
