Company History

Ogston’s Body & Paint has been family owned and operated for over 30 years. With a passion for quality and providing the highest possible level of customer service, Certified Master Technician Joe Ogston has grown the business from the original corner gas station that occupied this site, to one of the most prestigious body shops in the area.

High Production Capacity

Our present facility was designed and built specifically to repair collision-damaged vehicles as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible. It covers over 15,000 square feet of workspace and over an acre of property.

Trained & Skilled Technicians

In the fast-paced automobile repair world, we believe that training holds the key to success. We conduct extensive training programs in-house and also participate in ongoing outside training at every level.

State of the Art Production Equipment

Our production department is truly the heart of our business, and as such has been outfitted to promote efficiency, quality, accuracy, and safety in each segment of the repair process. From the initial inspection to the final detailing, Ogston’s Body & Paint is equipped with the finest equipment available. Our equipment list meets or exceeds the minimum requirements established by both the Collision Industry Conference (CIC), one of the leading industry trade associations, and TECH-COR. We have built our facilities for high production and quicker turn times than the competition. We feel that this is attributed to the ease with which we can handle significant repair jobs without the bottlenecks that can typically place a stranglehold on production. Given the opportunity, we are proud of our ability to return our customer’s car back to them quickly.

Frame & Unibody Equipment

With customer satisfaction as our commitment, and productivity as our objective, our European Car-O-Liner Repair System allows our technicians to repair any damaged vehicle to its pre-accident condition, time after time, day after day. We return each and every vehicle back to the manufacturer’s specifications using a measuring system that ensures damage to your vehicle’s frame or unibody is realigned to precise factory tolerances.

Paint Mixing/Color Matching

For the best possible finish and color match, we use a photospectrometer. This device uses a camera to take a picture of the vehicle and measures light intensity in different parts of the spectrum allowing us to get an exact color match.  This system along with highly trained staff enables us to guarantee perfect color matches every time. Our refinish department takes great pride in providing quality finishes suitable for any and all makes and models on the road today.


Very simply, our organization is people working to help people. We take great pride in staffing our organization with people driven by a cohesive spirit of teamwork who understand your needs. Each and every member of our staff has significant experience and background either in the automobile repair industry or automobile insurance claims.
