Auto Firms Come Together in Grand Forks, ND

Grand Forks' Rossten Auto purchased a DeMers Avenue repair shop during the last week of April, which its owner said will create a unique offering of auto body and repair services under one roof.

Rossten had a body shop on North 43rd Street to compliment its sales lot on Gateway Drive, owner Ross Huebner said. But in seeking more space and a bigger market share, it purchased A Transmission City at 2115 DeMers Ave.

"As our business continued to grow and service more customers, we needed more space," Huebner said. "They're still going to be here, so we're still going to do general auto repair and transmissions, but we're also going to run a full-service collision center out of here, too."

Rossten is "revamping and repurposing" the A Transmission City building, which Huebner hopes to have done in July. The new business will be called Rossten Collision and Repair, he said.

"We're going to be a collision center and a mechanic shop, all combined into one," Huebner said.
