Nathan & Melissa Mack

Hi, I’m Nathan Mack, owner of Kay Parks Auto Body. Since taking over the shop in June of 2014, I’ve been driven by keeping the excellent reputation it already had. Previous ownership has built up an incredible customer base, and I’m happy to be the one trusted to serve them.

Before I ask you to bring your damaged vehicles to Kay Parks, I’d like to take this chance to introduce myself, that way you’ll know who you’re working with when you continue to bring your vehicle in for any collision repair. Like I said I’m Nathan Mack. I’ve had a long career in the Auto Repair Industry. I even used to own Ponders Collision Center. I put in a lot of time and energy into my career and retired for the first time at only 49 years of age.

I knew it wouldn’t be a permanent break, but it was a good chance to see what I wanted to do next. I began talking to Dan Meyer, the owner of Kay Parks at the time. He was looking to retire and wanted to give me the opportunity to buy the shop. He said he knew if I took over, the shop would be run the same way – Customer-Focused.

We partner closely with Insurance Companies to make sure your car can be repaired cost-effectively. An important component of the way I run any shop I work in is continuing education. That’s why we work closely with The I-CAR Education program to ensure all our techs are kept up to date, making sure they know the most efficient way of getting out dents, dings, and other damage. It might be easy to just rest on the fact that we’ve been here for a long time and people trust us. But I believe Integrity is crucial when dealing with our 2nd and 3rd generation customers. And integrity is doing the right thing, even when nobody’s looking.

I’m glad to have gotten the chance to introduce myself. When you’re looking for a place to take your vehicle, you can rest assured we’ll take excellent care of it. Kay Parks is committed to being your first choice in car collision repair.
