Eric Meyer was born into the auto business---literally.
“I think it’s been his calling ever since he was born in the back seat of a Grand Marquis on Main Street in Colesburg,” said his wife and business partner, Andrea (Moser) Meyer. “Eric has 16 years’ experience in this industry and is very dedicated to this field of work.”
Eric and Andrea opened Meyer Body and Paint in March of 2014 in Colesburg, IA, to work on collision and restoration services. When their business began to outgrow that location, Guttenberg seemed to be a natural next step.
“We were fortunate enough to find a great building and location that seemed [to be] a perfect fit for us,” said Meyer, expressing her gratitude to the property’s former owners, Ken and Margie Deutmeyer. “They have been very helpful and accommodating with us, selling their location and building to us and giving us the opportunity to start up our business here in Guttenberg.”
The Meyers sold their Colesburg business to their restoration technician, Tim Wilhelm, who now runs his own classic car restoration service there.
Meyer Body and Paint’s Guttenberg team includes Clifford Judkins, who has been with the business for nearly four years.
“He has 15 years of experience in auto body repair. He is a great asset to our business, as he knows the people in this area and is very versatile in this field of work,” said Meyer.
Brian Bries joined the team a few months ago.
“He also is versatile in this industry, as he also has a 12-year mechanics background. He has been learning the auto body trade very quickly,” Meyer explained. “We are fortunate to have a good group of local guys working for us.”
“We pride ourselves on getting your vehicle back to pre-accident condition in a timely manner with as little stress on you as possible,” said the owners.
From buffing out scratches to major collision repairs and frame straightening, Meyer Body and Paint offers both automotive and large truck collision services.
