Auto Body & Paint

Staying up-to-date with vehicle repairs, industry trends and technology, Olson Tire & Auto Service will be installing a Side-Load Finishing System from Global Finishing Solutions® (GFS). Olson’s system will be similar to GFS’ working body shop at their Center for Excellence training facility — a fully equipped body shop with top-of-the-line paint booths and prep areas, integrated and mobile REVO Accelerated Curing Systems, paint mixing rooms and other body shop equipment.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Side-Load System will allow vehicles to be moved quickly and easily between work bays on the integrated track and dolly system. This innovative system includes Ultra XD Closed-Top Open-Front (CTOF) Booth and Ultra XD Paint Booth. Also included are an Ultra XD Mix Room, REVO Rapid MC2 and REVO Handheld — mobile curing units that can be easily moved around the shop for added efficiency.

Traci is a breath of fresh air to our newest addition - Olson Auto Body & Paint. It isn't often that you meet a person and immediately feel like you've known them for a long time. Traci has that way about her. An engaging smile and laugh, a generous spirit, and great willingness to trest you AND your vehicle the way you want to be cared for. We are blessed that she has taken a leadership position as operations manager for our new facility. Her interaction with both our service teams is something to see, and she truly brings a wealth of knowledge and commitment to making your vehicle look and perform as before it's bumps and bruises.

Travis joined us in the fall of 2020 and was immediately thrust into the difficult spot of covering for our superstar manager Traci while she was on maternity leave. As a new facility without a huge track record we were really under the gun, but Travis led us thru that period like a champion! Thanks Travis!

Now he is also enrolled in the pre-Apprenticeship collision program and building his skill set to expand his knowledge and abilities. Currently working as our final step in the delivery of your vehicle he excels at making sure we have achieved returning your vehicle as "Happy” as if it never had an accident!

Welcome to the team Travis.
