Nagy’s Body & Frame was established in 1973 by Dave Nagy. Dave began his career path as a Tool and Die maker. Eventually, his love for the automobile won out, and he founded Nagy’s Body & Frame at 12145 Whitman Rd. Doylestown. After 3 additions and many updates, Doylestown, at 10,000 square feet, continues to be the largest repair facility in the Nagy’s Collision Centers family.
In 1995, brothers Ron and Dan Nagy purchased the business from their father. At the time, they had both worked for over 15 years as technicians at Nagy’s. Dave continues to play a major role in the business, as a consultant, encourager and role model.
In April 2005, Ron and Dan saw a need in the Wooster area for an independent repair facility. They purchased a 6,000 square foot building on Cleveland Rd. and remodeled it.
