Pearl Auto Body Expands to Seventh Location

Pearl Auto Body added its seventh location on Friday, Jan. 14. The new facility is located at 205 3rd Avenue, Longmont, Colo. Pearl took ownership of the formerly know Rocky Mountain Paint & Body.
Rocky Mountain Paint & Body has been serving the Longmont community since 1970. Rocky Mountain Paint & Body was owned by Casey Najera, a 30-year veteran of the collision repair industry, until his passing in September 2009 when his daughter and son-in-law, Leora Najera and Warren Anderson, assumed ownership. Najera and Anderson wanted to pursue other life ventures and came to a mutual agreement with Pearl Auto Body to take acquire ownership of the facility.
"We are excited for this great opportunity," says Pearl Auto Body Owner Dave Call. "Leora and Warren are great people with a lot of integrity and they have built an environment that emulates that integrity. We are thrilled to carry on their relationship with the Longmont community."
Aside from the ownership change of the 205 3rd Avenue facility, no other employee changes will be made. The Longmont shop is currently employed with painters, repair technicians, detailers, estimators, parts personnel and customer service representatives. Although the facility has changed its ownership and name, customers can expect the same customer service and quality workmanship.
"Our goal is not to come in and completely change their operations," adds Call. "Our goal and business is to provide quality repairs and meet customer expectations and our new Longmont location already accomplishes both."
Along with the new location, Pearl Auto Body welcomes a new facility manager, Dave Rehfeld, to oversee the Longmont establishment. Rehfeld joins Pearl after working as a general manager for a national auto body chain for more than four years. He has 27 years of experience as an auto mechanic and is a 10-year veteran of the auto body industry. Rehfeld is a Colorado native and currently lives in Arvada, Colo.

Locally owned and operated, Pearl Auto Body has been serving the Colorado community for more than 20 years with facilities in Boulder, Conifer/Morrison, Denver, Golden, Greeley, Lakewood, Littleton and Longmont
