About Eustis Body Shop
Eustis Body Shop began as a one-shop enterprise in 1979 by Doug Keller. With a degree in auto body technology from Southeast Community College in Milford, NE, Doug purchased a building in Eustis, NE, and turned a childhood passion for cars into a thriving business. The shop in Eustis has five employees, and is managed by Jerud Banzhaf.
In 1988, Eustis Body Shop expanded to Lexington, NE, when the local Ford dealership disbanded their auto body business. Managed by Dave Berke, a longtime employee, Eustis Body Shop built a new location just off the new west overpass in Lexington and is staffed with six employees.
Green’s Body Shop of Grand Island, NE, with two locations, was purchased by Eustis Body Shop in 1991. Eventually, those two locations were combined into our current shop of nine employees, is just off West Old Highway 30, and is managed by Doug Miotke.
Eustis Body Shop in Kearney was built in 1997, and is the largest of the five locations. Glen Brown, formerly a body technician at the original Eustis location, manages the Kearney shop and its thirteen employees.
The newest addition to the Eustis Body Shop, Inc. franchise was bought from Cozad Auto Body in 2006. Renovations and technology were added to the shop to meet the requirements of carrying the Eustis Body Shop name. Our Cozad shop, with 5 employees, is located just off Meridian Avenue, the main entrance into Cozad from I-80, and is managed by Bob Schaefer.
Despite having multiple locations and over 50 employees, Doug has stayed true to his early belief in good quality business ethics. By combining the latest technologies in auto body repair with highly trained employees, Eustis Body Shop is able to perform repairs quicker and return vehicles back to factory specifications in an efficient manner.
A trusting customer relationship and hard earned reputation for quality work has been our primary goal. If you haven’t been one of the thousands of Central Nebraskans who have had their vehicle repaired by one of our shops, we invite you to stop by for a free estimate the next time your vehicle needs repair. We understand that your vehicle may be one of your most valuable assets, and we treat it accordingly!
Thank you for visiting our website, and feel free to contact us at any of our locations if we may be of assistance to you.
Doug Keller and the entire Eustis Body Shop Staff.
