We Believe

A Legacy Isn't Built Overnight

Dodson-Williams Automotive opened shop in 1961, right across the street from our current location under the ownership of John Dodson and Harold Williams. The company that started with four employees now has 20 highly trained staff members with collectively over 250 years of experience.

Over the years we have been lucky enough to expand alongside our neighbors in downtown Springfield. In February of 2014 we added a new location on the south side of town in the hopes of serving more of our customers.

We pride ourselves on building our business on a long-term reputation of quality and superior customer service. We have always been locally owned and operated, and now we are proud to be family owned. Our current owner Keith Neal began sweeping floors for Dodson-Williams as an 18-year old high schooler. From there, he learned from the best and became a body tech himself, before taking ownership in 1991. During this time he gained an extensive amount of knowledge and passion for the auto body industry.

Dodson-Williams is able to lifetime-guarantee all of our work because we truly believe we have the most talented staff in the industry.

We know how stressful it can be to get into an accident, and that’s why we work directly with insurance and rental car companies to give you a hassle-free experience. We love being a part of the Springfield community and we try to provide that “hometown style service” which differentiates us from the the rest. When you’re in an accident, come in and let us get you back on the road faster than anyone in town!

Thank you for making us your body shop for the last 55 years!
