It Goes Back Over 200 Years.

Almost nothing in the auto body repair business goes back over two centuries.  We were still using a horse and buggy for crying out loud!  One thing that does, however, is the type of paint your favorite shop in the Louisville area may be using.  A great product such as paint can and should stand the test of time.

Back in 1792 (that’s the 18th century folks) Wiert Willem Sikkens built a paint factory in the city of Groningen Germany.  Today, Sikkens is a multinational brand and their passion for developing the best decorative coatings have grown and gained customers throughout Europe, North America, Asia and Australia.

At The Don Embry Body Shop here in Louisville, we use Akzo Noble's Sikkens as our choice when it comes to refinishing.  We stand behind the quality and history of this premier product when it comes to re-painting your vehicle after a collision.  The Don Embry Body Shop relies on the best of new and old located at 8272 Dixie Highway.  Call (502) 935-1373.

Is Everyone Okay?

Have you ever had your car rear-ended while stopped at an intersection?  Is so, take heart in the fact you’re not alone.  According to the National Transportation Safety Board, of the over 6 million traffic accidents each year in the U.S., 40% involve rear-end collisions.  Most are not serious, and the resulting damage to the rear-ended vehicle is usually superficial.

Here are some trunk-related problems that can result –

1.  The lid keeps popping open
2.  The trunk won’t stay locked
3.  Water is seeping in
4.  Your vehicle’s trunk becomes hard to open

A rear-end collision is obviously a nuisance and can become dangerous if not checked out and addressed.  For that, you stop by 8272 Dixie Highway in Louisville.  That has been the home of The Don Embry Body Shop for over half a century.  Call for an appointment even if it is just to give yourself peace of mind at (502) 935-1373.
