What makes Simpson's
Our extensive training, the quality of our work, and our
commitment to customer satisfaction have all been a huge factor in the
success of our business. These factors didn't just happen by
chance, it is a philosophy that has been passed down from our
grandfather, to our father, to our present day operation.
three shops in the Shoals' area, all operated by three brothers.
The Simpson brothers, like so many of their peers in the automobile
repair industry, were influenced by their father and grandfather,
generating an interest in the three boys at an early age in what would
become their chosen profession. "Our granddaddy started the
mechanical part of the business, then our father started the body
repair." Johnny Simpson explained. "We saw that it
was a good business to be in. When we were growing up,
we always liked to be in that shop", he said. That first shop
was in Muscle Shoals.
Today the three
brothers -- Johnny, Danny, & Mark each operate a successful
shop. Danny's in Sheffield, opened in 1981; Johnny's in Florence,
opened in 1991, and Mark's in Killen, opened in 2000.
Johnny's shop is 15,000
square feet and employs 12 people. Mark's shop is just under
15,000 square feet, and he also has 12 employs. Danny's shop is
the largest of the three at approximately 20,000 square feet and employs
13 people. In addition to the body shop in Sheffield is also the
home base for Simpson's Wrecker Service.
"We've been lucky, our father leaves us in complete control of the shops and has always
encouraged expansion. He has never held us back", said
"One of the biggest
things that has helped our is the fact that it is truly a family
business. Today, even though our father is not so much directly
involved in the business, he's still a figurehead in it, and he's around
all the time. Our sister works with us; helping all three shops
with bookwork." Mark went on to say that he believes this
working relationship has made them much closer as a family, and that
customers notice the family atmosphere and appreciate it.
