About Our Business

Laton’s Body Shop has been family owned and operated since 1981. Founding owner Rayvon Laton started the business in 1981 and passed it on to his son, Rick Laton, in 1995. Rick brought years of business and customer service experience to the shop, managing to build a reputable, award-winning business. During his time at the helm, the company became eight-time winners of the Stanly News and Press Reader’s Choice Award for Best Body Shop.

In 2018, Laton’s Body Shop began a third generation as Ryan Laton came aboard to work alongside his dad. Ryan takes pride in providing excellent customer service to everyone who needs auto body repair, and he deals with insurance companies and estimates to get each customer the best rates for our services. He brings a fresh perspective as well as a much-needed social media presence to the business. Looking ahead, Ryan hopes to expand the business by offering new services in the future.

Laton’s Body Shop is the perfect size! Large enough to have all of the needed equipment and small enough to be locally known and trusted.

We also have an entire painting and detailing team who knows how to put the finishing touches on paint jobs small or large. From disguising minor scuffs to major scratches, our PPG Certified Technicians professionally color match to return your vehicle to as close to pre-accident condition as possible

As you can see, there’s an entire team at work both in the spray booth and behind the scenes working hard to bring vehicles back to factory-like condition. We’re proud of our record of success, giving new life to even the most damaged automobiles. Give us a call today or stop by the shop to see what we can do for you!
