Four Decades of Customer Satisfaction
Jerry's Auto Body Inc., founded in 1976, has been owned and operated by Jerry Fish Sr. since its inception Jerry Fish Sr. began his auto body career working for several dealerships in the local area. He had a disdain for the “old time dealership” style repairs and wanted to have a personal touch and commitment to perfection on each and every job he performed. That’s when he decided to start his own business in 1976. His first shop was in an old barn which was converted into a collision repair shop. Jerry, over a short period of time, overcame the poor conditions and excelled in the collision repair business due to his hard work ethic and commitment to excellence and insistence on complete customer satisfaction. At a time when most shops were looking for short cuts Jerry resolved to go “above and beyond” to insure his customer’s lifelong satisfaction and loyalty. Needless to say, his reputation grew rapidly in the local community. Jerry always wanted repeat customers and 100% satisfaction was the only thing that satisfied him and his commitment to retaining every customer that came to him for any repair large or small.
In 1982 after his customer base had outgrown the building he was currently in, he decided to personally build his dream shop and constructed his Collision Center where we are currently located on Bethlehem Pike in Souderton, Pa. The business had continued to grow and since that time he has expanded with three additions, doubling the building in size and adding state of the art equipment to keep up with the constantly changing automotive industry. Jerry's Auto Body Inc. has become one of the largest independent, family owned collision centers in the entire area. Jerry has instilled his work ethic and his pursuit of perfection to all those that are employed at Jerry's Auto Body Inc. Since Jerry’s passing in February 2013 his wife Jean Fish has taken over his role as owner. As Jerry’s partner and office manager Jean has been intimately involved with all aspects of the business and is continuing to insure that Jerry’s legacy lives on.
Jerry’s son Jerry Fish Jr. recently retired after serving 27 years as a Hill town Police officer and has assumed the role of Director of Operations. His experience of over 27 years dealing with the public and dealing with traffic accidents gives him a unique edge to most people in the automotive industry along with his honesty and integrity that will prove to be a major asset in many years to come. Jerry Sr. has instilled all the same qualities in his son as he had. Jerry Jr. will continue the family business with the same commitment to excellence and customer satisfaction just as his father started 40 years ago.
Jerry’s Shop Manager James E Lewis has over thirty years of experience in the collision industry. He also has a decade long participation in the Nationwide Insurance Company OYSARN. Jim has demonstrated the same core qualities Jerry believed and lived by and has become highly respected by his peers and co-workers along with all insurance companies and adjusters. Assistant Manager Brian O’Hara has over 40 years of experience in the automotive industry and embraces the same qualities that Jim has and Jerry's Auto Body Inc. embraces and lives by. With both men managing each claim from start to finish, customers are very confident from day one that they have no concerns on their repair process from start to finish. Our Goal is to see a SMILE on customer’s faces when they see their repaired vehicle.
