Bud's Body Shop, Inc.
Richard (Dick) Ginther,
Bud's Body Shop's current owner, has abided by one simple business principle:
PROVIDE GOOD SERVICE AT A FAIR PRICE
Richard Ginther, more commonly known as, Dick, has owned Bud’s Body Shop since 1972. Dick learned the importance of hard work and quality service at a young age. He was only twelve years old when he started plowing Victory Gardens with his team of horses. He worked odd jobs at the Studebaker factory filling in for people that couldn’t make it to work. His experience working for Studebaker helped him gain a superior knowledge of vehicle repair and service. In 1951 he joined the army as a mechanic working on Track Vehicles like Tanks, Half-Tracks, and Jeeps.
While working for Emmert Trailer in 1970, he brought trucks to Bud’s Body Shop from Emmert to get aligned. From there Richard developed a friendship with Bud Miller, the original owner of Bud’s Body Shop. Bud approached Richard in 1972 to take over the business. Plans came together and Richard took ownership on June 1, 1972. He kept the business name as a way to honor the Bud’s Body Shop heritage
Richard continued to maintain the level of service and integrity that Bud had for the business by satisfying customers with great service at a fair price. Over 40 years later, Richard is still committed to providing great service at fair price to all of the loyal customers who walk into Bud’s Body Shop. This is why our customers continue to “Bring it to Bud’s” year after year.
