The business was first founded in 1971 and since then has evolved into Authentic Auto Body, which is owned and operated by Steven Proia who brings over 15 years of experience in the auto body industry.

Steve first attended Minuteman Career and Technical High School located in Lexington, MA where he graduated with a certificate in auto body repair in 2003. During his time there, Steve placed in the top four in the state of Massachusetts during a Skills USA challenge. Skills USA provides educational programs, events, and competitions that support career and technical education to ensure America has a skilled work force. Since then, Steve has gained an extensive amount of hands on experience and for the past five years has been successfully managing auto body shops as a licensed appraiser. This role has provided him with the opportunity to learn the business side of the industry.

Steve’s knowledge and expertise in the auto body industry combined with his passion for his work has led him to fulfilling his lifelong dream of owning his own shop. Steve is excited for him and his family to be newly part of the Holliston community and looks forward to establishing lifelong relationships both inside as well as outside the community.

 

WHY CHOOSE US?

Here at Authentic Auto Body, our mission is to provide high quality, convenient and comprehensive auto repair at an affordable cost, along with the very best in customer service. The most important aspect of our business is for the customer to have trust and confidence in both management as well as the quality of the service provided. Authentic Auto Body’s primary goal is to have 100% customer satisfaction in regards to quality, friendliness, and time to completion. To ensure sustainability and steady growth, Authentic Auto Body will continuously strive to discover new ways to exceed the expectations of current and future customers.

Steve Proia is the proud owner and founder of Authentic Auto Body & Collision LLC. Prior to establishing Authentic Auto Body, Steve started his auto body career at Minuteman Career and Technical High School located in Lexington. During his time as a student he also began working in a small shop in Watertown where he realized working in the auto body industry was his true passion and desired career path.

Since then, Steve has gained an extensive amount of hands on bodywork and office experience in different auto body shops, but was never quite satisfied. While always trying to do what was in the customers’ best interest, he found that management was more concerned about what made money rather than what was safe for the customer and failed to see the importance of going that extra mile to ensure quality work. He knew in his heart that someday he would strive to break the chain of auto body shops using cheap parts, cheap materials, and cutting corners on safety items just to please the insurance companies or make an extra buck.

The day has finally come where Steve’s hard worked has paid off, turning his dreams into reality allowing him to open his own auto body shop, Authentic Auto Body & Collision LLC. At Authentic Auto Body, the focus is first and foremost on customer satisfaction. Steve hopes to change the face of the auto body trade and create the type of experience where his customers are known by their name, not just another customer. Steve and his family are excited to be newly part of the Holliston community and are looking forward to creating lifelong relationships throughout the Holliston area as well as surrounding towns.

Authentic Auto Body & Collision is truly a family owned business. Alongside Steve, you can find his fiancée Gabrielle in the office who is an enthusiastic and highly driven member of their new business.

Prior to Authentic Auto Body, Gabrielle attended Merrimack College where she attained a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Development in 2015 as well as a Master’s Degree in Management in 2016. Gabrielle has worked in a variety of industries that offered her a wide range of experiences and interactions. Through those experiences, she discovered her talent and passion was in helping others. Her desire to serve others combined with her interest in business development,has led her towards pursuing a career at Authentic Auto Body. Her role is to assist customers with handling the logistics and claims process. She is an instrumental part in assisting Steve with operating the business side of this family owned shop.

Gabrielle is currently working towards becoming a licensed appraiser to gain further knowledge in the industry. She is excited about this new opportunity for her family and is looking forward to having Steve, herself, and their son Vincent involved in the Holliston community.
