Our Story

L-JAY AUTOBODY was established in 1982 by Ron Nicholson, in 1987 Ken & Laura Gareau (Ron’s best friend) purchased L-JAY keeping Ron as the general manager, at that time Vince Gareau (Laura & Ken’s son) entered into the business as a technician & continued with the company to become a journeyman technician, Vince’s passion for vehicles, repairing, custom work, and fabrication was a sure fit for the collision repair business.

Over the years L-JAY has grown to become the industry leader in the region (Leduc County).

1998 Vince took over the management duties of the company & Ken stepped aside to begin retirement, Vince has now taken over the family & continues to grow the company, The future is bright at L-JAY as Vince’s son Dalton looks to be next in line to take over the L-JAY legacy. Dalton is a MacEwan University graduate (Business Program) who also carries a passion for the automotive industry. In January 2014 L-JAY AUTOBODY partnered up with the CSN Network, Canada’s largest network of collision repair facilities, to better serve their growing customer base.

L-JAY is known the place to go for the ”BEST” in collision repairs & customer service.
