Barnes Body Shop was founded in 1984 by current owners Brian and Nancy Barnes. Brian began working at Barnes Garage on Penn Street that was his grandfathers business before deciding to focus more on collision repairs. He worked during the day on mechanical repairs and then after business hours on collision repair with Nancy. After several years, they found the need for their own building and built the current location of Barnes Body Shop that included 3 bays and one paint booth. Since then they have expanded the business to over 13 working bays. They have also expanded the number of employees from the two of them to a great team of 11 employees. Of those employees is their son Jeremy who has great interest in the industry. Jeremy does alot of research on current auto body repair techiniques and products which helps Barnes Body Shop have the most modern equipment available.
