Moving with the times has been key to 100 years of success for Napier company City Collision RepairsSurviving a century is no mean feat.  The panel and pain repair business has been through economic downturns and war, and kept up with the ever-changing landscape of technology.  Formerly known as A Dykes and Sons, the shop was established in 1916 by Andy Dykes and later taken over by his sons Jack and Andy.Another father and son team, Roger and Chris Greaney, are now at the helm and has see the industry come a long way in recent times."In 100 years it's evolved from wheelwrights and coach builders to makers of bus, truck and vintage car bodies, to a business that repair them as a growing number of vehicles on the road result in more accidents," says City Collision Repairs (CCR) manager and owner Chris.
