A Family Shop
Body Builders Automotive started in a small garage in Buffalo Grove, IL by two brothers, Michael and Patrick Phillippi in 1978. As metal technicians, they learned literally every aspect of the collision repair industry by doing it themselves. As the business started to grow, they realized that they needed to acquire a commercial facility.
Today, Body Builders Automotive employs 20-plus collision professionals out of a 10,800 square foot facility. Most of our metal technicians are I-CAR Platinum and the shop is I-CAR Gold, the highest designations any body shop can acquire.
Within the next few years, Body Builders Automotive will become a true second-generation business when our General Manager Joseph Phillippi (Michael’s son) will be taking over the shop’s reins. Built on quality and stressing excellent customer service, the future looks bright at Body Builders Automotive!
