Passionate About all Things Auto.
With over 20 years’ experience in the paint and panel business, auto enthusiast and fully qualified technician Mark Debono established East Coast Paint and Panel with Cara Lewis in 2015.
From small beginnings, the business soon grew thanks to word-of-mouth recommendations. The team expanded to eight (nine if you include Nala!) and moved to a larger facility where they could service more customers.
Located at 127 Brown Street, the fully equipped specialist premises can handle all types of smash repairs, fleet maintenance and paint jobs in an efficient, safe manner.
The streamlined administrative systems ensure the team is fully across each job. Detailed records of all work carried out are kept, including photographs. These allow customers to see exactly what repairs were carried out and also, ensure there is an accurate history should a vehicle require more work in the future.
At East Coast Paint and Panel, we value our staff and invest heavily in their education and training so as a team, we can not only maintain, but continually improve on the way we do business.
Having a strong team is important to us and we work hard to develop our skills whether they are customer service, procedure or skills related. We never stop learning. New products and techniques are always coming to the market and in such a technology-led world, the auto bodywork industry is no exception.
We attend numerous seminars and conferences throughout the year, so we stay relevant. Learning from others in our industry and sharing knowledge is also important to us. We don’t want to be the biggest, we just want to be the best.
