After starting October 2012, Bearkat Collision has seen its business really picking up in the past year. Co-owner with Terry Turner, Bobby Beason said business was good in the first three months of operation since there were already customers who knew the shop was coming and even waited to have their cars worked on. The high-tech auto body shop specializes in collision repair and restoration, repairing and painting cars, trucks, motorcycles, 18 wheelers, travel trailers, RV’s, brush guards, even plastic or fiber glass parts like ground effects and spoilers. “Our main target customers need collision repair, from minor scratches to perimeter repair,” Beason said. But after the initial rush, things slowed down a bit at Bearkat Collision, located on Highway 75 just two and a half miles past the Pilot truck stop. Beason said that in the last four months or so, due to online networking and word slowly traveling in the community, Bearkat Collision has become a lot busier and more consistent. Beason is a DeBery, TX, native who moved to Huntsville after management positions at multiple car dealerships.
