Based on the Decoy Industrial Estate, an opportunity arose to purchase a business that had been in the automotive trade for the previous 30 years.
Once acquired the expansion began. We are a small dedicated team of 5 people, the workshop manager, paint foreman and 3 apprentices.
The business first started as a ‘one man band’ before quickly growing to needing one then two more employees. We are now a settled and fully experienced team who have a passion for performing car body repairs and restoring vehicles to their former glory.
We offer a full range of services including body work repairs, alloy wheel repairs and refurbishment, restoration, accident repairs, industrial and custom work, as well as supporting work required for insurance or MOT purposes.
Richard first fell in to bodywork while studying Physics at University and needed an extracurricular hobby. After fitting a bodykit and re-spraying his own vehicle he found he enjoyed it so much that he started doing ‘bits and bobs’ for family and friends.
With a keen business and leadership sense he decided to start his own enterprise and 10 Years later, Auto A.R.T is now a fully established business, serving the Torbay and Teignbridge area.
Sam joined the team in December 2015, having worked at a large bodyshop in Exeter. He was keen to work in a smaller, local business in Newton Abbot. He settled in very quickly, soon becoming a valuable member of staff. In his spare time, Sam enjoys walking his Labrador puppy and night time fishing.
