The Santee, CA-based repair facility has built a reputation for high-quality, virtually undetectable repairs since 1983.


Quality Collision Group (QCG) acquired Philip Thearle’s Autowerks Collision Center in Santee, CA, its second location in the San Diego area.

Philip Thearle, founder of Autowerks, has built a reputation for high-quality, virtually undetectable repairs since establishing his brand in 1983.

"We raised the bar in this industry by applying the principles and techniques perfected in our restoration model to collision repair. As part of Quality Collision Group, we aim to reach even higher. Their expertise and resources regarding OEM repairs are unequalled,” Thearle stated.

The 50,000-square-foot facility, purpose-built in 2005, boasts several prestigious OEM certifications, including those from BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Porsche and Mercedes-Benz. In total, the shop holds 13 OEM certifications, with two more pending approval. This aligns with QCG's commitment to maintaining high standards in OE-centric repairs.

“The addition of Phil Thearle’s Autowerks speaks to our commitment to being the best OE-focused repair enterprise on the West Coast," said Brent McKinney, executive VP of operations at QCG. "We place our customers’ interests first, and so has Phil for more than 40 years.”

Philip Thearle’s Autowerks Collision Center is located at 8809 Mission Gorge Road in Santee, and operates from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. For more information, visit www.ptautowerks.com.
