3D Auto Body & Collision Centers Receives Small Business of the Year Award

Founded in 1981 by Dave Niestroy, the independently owned multi-shop operator has some of the largest state-of-the-art facilities of their kind in the Northeast region of the country.

3D President Dave Niestroy announced that 3D Auto Body & Collision Centers received the prestigious 2016 Small Business of the Year Award presented by the Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry.

Each year the Chester County Chamber of Business & Industry honors a member business with the Small Business of the Year Award, which is granted to a company that epitomizes the true meaning of entrepreneurship, leadership and success. It is a company that took significant risk, yet achieved substantial commercial success while remaining active in community service.

“I want to thank my parents for allowing me to use their garage starting in 1977 to paint everything from bicycles to lawn mowers to eventually cars,” said Niestroy during his speech to over 300 in attendance at the Chamber’s awards dinner Jan. 20th.

Niestroy, who is a Chester County native, started the business in 1981 by first renting a bay at his now largest production shop located in West Chester, Pa.

“This was a group effort and was well earned,” said Craig Camacho, 3D’s VP of Marketing & Business Development. “Dave is very generous and does a lot for our different communities, but he is not the kind of guy to publically pat himself on the back or to come up with a polished speech, so seeing him accept this award and speak with such passion was really nice.”

Founded in 1981 by Niestroy, the independently owned multi-shop operator has some of the largest state-of-the-art facilities of their kind in the Northeast region of the country.
