Art City Auto Body Joins 1Collision Network

April 24, 2023
1Collision has announced the addition of Art City Auto Body in Springville, Utah, to its national network.

1Collision has announced the addition of Art City Auto Body in Springville, Utah, to its network, according to a press release. 

The shop was opened in 1995, and as of two years ago, is owned by Daniel Arce, who purchased the business from William Rathigan. Springville is known for having a strong community in the arts, earning it the label Art City, where the shop’s name is derived from.

Arce had worked in the shop when he was a teenager, eventually going from sweeping floors to learning how to do bodywork. After working as an estimator for different shops for several years, he became a facility manager. 

After purchasing the shop, Arce enlisted the help of his two younger brothers: Ben Arce, who is an estimator that runs production, and John Arce, who manages the parts department. 

Since the new ownership, the shop and its 20 employees have “quadrupled business.” They’ve had so much business that the shop is backlogged, and currently adding another building to triple its size.

“Daniel is fairly new in the industry; however, in a short period of time, he has made his business flourish like owners that have been in the industry a long time,” stated John Hollingsworth, 1Collision's director of new location development.
