On the 1st April 2006 , Rodgers Soobramoney made a drastic and life changing career move by leaving the security of the corporate world and venturing into the business realm. With many years of experience in the motor industry (MIBCO, RMI & SAMBRA) as an inspector, Rodgers decided to utilise his expertise, in depth knowledge and drive to take over the then Highway Panel Beaters. After changing the name to Highway Body Shop , Rodgers instantly began to transform and implement his vision into the company.
Highway Body Shop became a recognised repair facility in the Highway area and through perseverance, dedication and hard work, Rodgers was able to get factory approvals from the major vehicle manufacturers and dealers in this country.
This mammoth task proved very successful with Highway Body Shop having 18 factory approvals, covering 90 percent of passenger and light commercial vehicles thus far and still going on until everyone is on board. The workmanship, quality, customer care and expertise has resulted in this body shop being recommended by all major insurance companies. A first in the industry, Highway Body Shop offers a life time warranty on paint work and five years workmanship warranty. The company utilises the latest technology, i.e. Electronic BMS, Wheel Alignment, and strives to always be abreast of the latest upgrades in the market. On the fifth anniversary of Highway Body Shop, the all new Highway Assessment Centre was launched.
