Founded June 1, 1980
Founders: Jerry Cervak & The Late Jim Vacala
In June of 1980, we opened a checking account with $65.00 and proceeded to buy business cards and hats and started Metal Mites Auto Body. Metal Mites was the name Jerry's wife created for metal caricatures that Jerry was making as a hobby. The company was located in Jerry's garage from June, 1980 to January 1, 1982 when we moved to 8916 Fairview, Brookfield. In December of 1985 we had the opportunity to purchase Falconer Wheel & Brake's building. After months of rehab we made the "big move" into our home at 36 East Quincy, Riverside on June 1, 1986.
Over the past 20 years we have had many changes and challenges. Unfortunately in March of 1997 we suffered our biggest loss when Jim passed on. He is sorely missed and will not be forgotten. Through the dedication of Jerry & Jim, Metal Mites, became what we are today. We are proud of our past and we are striving to continue our commitment to our clients now and in the future.
