Mark’s Auto Body was a dream that became a reality because of the determination for, owner/operator, Mark Milacic. Although Mark’s Auto Body was established in 1986, Mark’s experience in collision repair goes back 40 years and stems from a European background where high quality craftsmanship is the standard. That same high standard is what we put into every repair at Mark’s Auto Body Ltd.
Mark, now retired, has passed on his business to son’s Dino and Robert who have taken it to the next level with state of the art equipment, training and cutting edge, factory standard repair techniques that sets us apart from an average auto body shop. Having obtained 5 plus manufacturer certifications the boys have shifted their focus on evolving from an auto body shop to a “Remanufacturing facility”.
Partners, Dino and Robert, have set a course to solidify their legacy as industry leaders providing the highest quality, factory standard repairs with sustainable core values.
Our commitment to providing high quality, enviro-friendly repairs and customer service that exceeds customer expectations has resulted in the strong and steady growth of our company.
With a background in Marketing and a passion for Motorsports, Dino was the perfect fit for a career in the Auto Collision Repair Industry. He came on board the family business full time in 1995 and learned the ropes of body shop business management while attending college. His current role is to oversee all aspects of our transition to a process centre environment with the aim of becoming a true auto “remanufacturing” facility to factory standards. He also oversees all aspects of marketing and administration management for both locations.
Having joined the family business shortly after brother Dino, Robert took a technical route and completed a full journeymanship in auto collision repair. His technical knowledge and enthusiasm for the automotive industry has been a great asset to both the business and our customers. He is currently the manager of our Port Coquitlam location and handles all technical aspects of our organization. He also heads up our mechanical division, Mark’s Auto Performance. With a huge passion for all things performance and a popularity surge in the tuner market, our Performance division has taken on a life of it’s own. For the benefit of all in our industry, Robert has also volunteered by sitting on the Executive Board at the ARA’s Collision Repair Division.
Mark and Vicky Milacic
Owners - Now Retired
Mark Milacic’s basic philosophy has always been “do it right or don’t do it at all.” It’s a credo that has stood the test of time and lead his business toward a high level of success. His love for cars and skills as a craftsman were transplanted with him when he emigrated to Canada from Montenegro in 1973. He worked for several lower mainland auto collision repair shops before striking out on his own and starting Mark’s Auto Body Ltd in 1986 with the support of wife and accounts manager, Vicky Milacic. A true family affair, Mark’s two son’s Dino and Robert have grown up in this business and were groomed to take over. Now retired, Mark has passed on the torch to son`s Dino and Robert who have stepped up and taken the family business to a new level with state of the art equipment and advanced repair processes.
