Effective April 8, Bergin Auto Body of Eden Prairie, Minn., was purchased by Millard Holdings Inc., owned by Mark and Jen Millard of Montrose, Minn.
Bergin Auto Body was founded in 1967 by Jim and Nora Bergin, who ran the business for several decades, building it into one of the premier Twin Cities collision repair centers. Some of the services Bergin Auto Body offers include auto collision repair, paintless dent repair, auto glass replacement, motorcycle bodywork and now auto detailing.
“We’re positioning the business for new opportunities for growth and the refinement of services, making us very excited about the business’ future,” says Mark Millard. “We very much appreciate your continued support and patronage as we continue to move forward.”
The long-time staff, some of whom started their careers at the shop more than 20 years ago, have always taken great pride in their craftsmanship, Bergin says.
Continuing the tradition of a family owned and operated business, the Millards work together handling the day-to-day activities with their new office staff. Mark comes to Bergin as a veteran of 20-plus years in finance and corporate management, while Jen offers marketing proficiency.
Bergin Auto Body will continue to operate out of the 12,000-square-foot facility located at 7690 Corporate Way, Eden Prairie, Minn. Operating hours are Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
