April 7, 2014—Craftsman Auto Body recently opened a new facility in Burke, Va., the family-owned MSO’s 11th location.

The 30,000-square-foot shop will have two bays dedicated exclusively to work on the Ford F-150.

"For 20 years my brother John and I have wanted to open a location here—in the neighborhood where we grew up and have so many wonderful memories. It is very satisfying for us to serve this community where we already have a large customer base," said Paul Krauss, Craftsman Auto Body president and CEO.

Craftsman is a third-generation family business and was founded in 1956. The company’s 11 facilities repair more than 2,000 vehicles per month and have 275 employees on staff.
