Meet Dave Seliga

 Seliga Auto Body was highlighted in the February 2007 issue of the Minnesota Alliance of Automotive Service Providers (AASP) News magazine.  Following are excerpts from the article by Alicia D'Aquila.

          David Seliga has been immersed in the collision repair industry since he was a teenager.  Today, Seliga is still going strong as not only a body tech, but also the owner of Seliga's Auto Body in Saint Paul Park MN.

          "I was first introduced to auto repair when I was 16," says Seliga.  "I worked at a used car dealership in Jacksonville, Florida that my uncle owned.  In the 10 years I worked with him, he taught me everything I needed to know at that time about collision repair and paint, and I was inspired enough to want to open my own business."

          Seliga opened his first shop in 1973, in Newport.  He moved to his current location in St. Paul Park in 1982.  Operating on 3,200 square feet, with room for seven vehicles and a paint booth, Seliga's Auto Body has a staff of four.  "It's an old building, but we have a lot of room to operate," explains Seliga.  "And my employees work very hard to maintain a level of excellence that I feel is unparalleled.

          As a part of the industry for over 40 years, Seliga has seen a multitude of changes.  "One of the biggest changes I've seen in this industry is the evolution of paint," he notes.  "I've gone through so many complete changes in my paint systems over the years; the paint products and techniques we use have advanced at least as much as the vehicles we repair.

          "We do great repairs and put 100 percent into every job we do, no matter what.  At the end of the day, we're confident that we provide a valuable service to every customer that walks through our doors.  That's all that matters to me."
