In June of 1983 Jim Byron and Ron Christie opened Patterson Auto Body, Inc.

The original location was three miles north of their present location.
In October of 1983 the business was relocated to the intersection of Route 22 and Haviland Hollow Road in Patterson, where they continue to conduct business to this day.

"The goal of this shop is to produce high quality repairs that will return your vehicle back to pre-collision condition while maintaining the structural integrity originally built by the manufacturer.

The operation of this shop shall be maintained so as to promote pleasant working conditions for and a team spirit effort among all employees.

The customer will be treated with the utmost courtesy at all times by all employees, for without the customer there is no business and without the business there are no jobs!"
