About Us


The Auto Body Plant was built in 1953 by Paul Oliver with assistance from his 13-year old nephew, Henri Ingels, who had just arrived from Belgium. The business opened under the ownership of Glenn "PeeWee" Anderson and Slim Ball of Monroe. During their tenure, Henri Ingels worked under these two gentlemen and gained the knowledge of the auto body repair business. At the young age of 23, Henri bought into the business buying Slim Ball's portion. Ten years later, Henri acquired PeeWee's partnership and then he purchased the building from Paul Oliver. Henri worked at the Auto Body Plant and gained many customers as time went on. He was very grateful for his loyal customers that patronized him over the years and he also had many faithful employees during his 42 year ownership. One by one, his four children entered the family business. Henri 

taught his four children the auto body repair trade and he was so proud to have all of his children work for him. In 2005, Henri died and left a tremendous legacy at the Auto Body Plant. He will always be remembered as being a great father and a very good boss.
