For today's episode, we have Kyle Boyce, the Vice President of Boyce Body Werks, Inc.
On Sept 1, 1985, Ken and Marcia Boyce opened the doors of Boyce Body Werks on Paramount Parkway in Batavia. The original building came equipped with a homemade paint booth which was soon replaced by a state-of-the-art German downdraft paint booth. During that era, very few shops in the Chicagoland area had this superior type of equipment. Quality work was the primary focus from day one.
Kyle Boyce literally grew up in the shop. When he wasn’t even a year old, he was with his parents when they looked at and signed the lease on the first Boyce Body Werks building on Paramount Parkway. He started helping his dad ‘work’ on cars at a very young age. Kyle has held 9 different positions in his 25 years at Boyce Body Werks, starting at age of 11 with the job of taking the garbage out. Since then, he has been a car washer, porter, buffer, painter’s helper, painter, parts person, estimator, general manager of the Batavia location, and now the Vice President of Boyce Body Werks.
Today, Boyce Body Werks is one of the largest independently-owned collision repair shops in the Chicago area, with over 40 employees, repairing all makes and models.
Kyle recently joined the prestigious MSO (multi-shop owner) 20 group of collision repair owners, where he is continuing to learn the business side of the collision repair industry from some of the most successful independent shop owners in the country.
