How We Came To Be

Bob's Auto Body was started in the late 1950's as a hobby shop on Elliot St. in Brockton Massachusetts. In 1960, we became a full body shop open for business. In April of 1986, Paul and Paula Ridley purchased Bob's Auto Body and became the new owners.
Paul Ridley was a 1971 graduate of South Shore Vocational Technical High School with four years of Auto Body Repair under his belt. He worked at various shops after he graduated to build his knowledge of business. Paul always wanted to own and run his own body shop and Bob's Auto Body made that dream a reality. Paula Ridley worked at Bradlees before she decided to join the management team at Bob's Auto Body. Paul and Paula had their son Daniel in October of the same year so this has been a busy year for the Ridleys. Daniel has recently graduated from Bridgewater State College with a Bachelor in Business Management in 2010.
In April of 1996 Bob's Auto Body was relocated to Main Street in Brockton in an effort to expand and reach more customers. We moved into a bigger building and larger lot. This gave us a chance to offer mechanical service as well as bodywork and we have been there ever since. Bob's Auto Body has been offering customers quality work and friendly service for over 60 years now and we would love you to come in and let us show you.
