Providing Expert & Honest Service For Our Loyal Customers
I began my career in the autobody industry in 1994 at a Freightliner dealership working as a shop apprentice, helping with every aspect of the shop processes and learning from every technician. I already had a strong background in heavy fabrication, so this is where I was placed early on as my role in the shop. I was given the opportunity to step into the paint booth one day, where it was proven that I had a natural ability for laying down paint. I have always been one to jump into everything head on and quickly excelled through the ranks in the shop. I found myself unchallenged in that job after a couple years and got a job in a Cadillac dealership, where I was able to hone my skills, but was also introduced to a couple restoration projects. This eventually led to me getting a job in a shop that specialized in restoration & custom projects. I was never able to see eye to eye with the owner of that shop in the styling and concept design of our projects, which eventually led to the necessity to move on.
I started my business in 2003 as Ramirez Rod & Custom focusing solely on restoration, custom builds & custom paint where we were fortunate enough to be involved in multiple high-end projects from around the country. After struggling through, and surviving, the economic downturn in 2008, we added collision repair as a full-time service. Around 2010 we completely phased the restoration/custom aspect of the business out and focused on collision repair as our only service and RR/C Collision Center was born. We were well known for the unprecedented quality we put into our custom work. Therefore, we wanted to make sure that standard of quality was put into every collision repair we performed.
