How Perry/Legend Started
The general manager and owner of Perry Legend Collision Repair Center, Bill Rajewski, tells the story behind the success of the company:
Perry Legend Collision Repair Center has been providing top-quality vehicle repairs in Mid-Missouri for over 30 years.
Perry Legend Collision Repair Center opened their doors for business on August 4, 1986. It was first located in a small former automobile dealership building. From the first moment, our company was growing very rapidly. By April of 1987, we moved our frame and alignment machines to an outdoor overhang and a couple of technicians were working outside temporarily. During Thanksgiving weekend of 1987, we relocated to a larger facility on North Providence Road.
The additional square footage available to us in our new location allowed us to add additional equipment to meet the new demands of our expanding business. In 1990, Perry Legend Collision Repair Center built a 9,600 sq. ft. addition to the facility and began offering repairs to large vehicles. We now had the capabilities to repair motor homes, semi-trucks and heavy equipment, school buses, trailers and much more. Perry Legend was not done expanding our business. In October 2001, we moved to our current location at 3101 LeMone Industrial Boulevard, located off Highway 63 South at the Grindstone Parkway exit.
We now have double the shop and office space. With new ideas on the market and the adaptation of new technologies, we can further benefit our customer vehicle repair needs.
