Gene and Susan Glaser started Glaser’s Automotive in 1986 as a full-service automotive repair shop. Gene Glaser came from a background of construction workers and Susan had a background in computers but they learned how to run the business. The original shop, a 900 sq. ft. building in Buechel, did full mechanical work, body, paint, interior repairs, and high-performance upgrades. After several years, the Glaser’s decided to narrow its focus in order to provide its customer with the best possible collision repair service.
In 1990, Glaser’s took the leap and built a shop, in Jeffersontown, better suited for the growing collision repair business. The Jeffersontown shop serves as the headquarters for Glaser’s and is the largest shop.
In 1999, a second location in the heart of Louisville was opened onPreston Hwy. Then in 2008, with a lack of quality-oriented shops in the area, several insurance companies motivated Glaser’s to start its third location inShepherdsville.
Second Generation Owners
Today, the business is being carried on by second generation owners Aaron and Heather Glaser. They are committed to investing in the growth of the current shops but also looking at opportunities to open more shops in underserved areas. In 2019, they opened the South Louisville location. The Glaser’s stand committed to high quality repairs and exceptional customer service as well as involvement in the community. Whether hostingLadies Night or a supply drive forKentucky Humane Society,orSouping up Bikes for Toys for Tots, the Glaser’s like supporting the community.
All Glaser’s locations maintain the I-Car Gold Class status, have I-Car trained welders, and technicians are trained to work on all makes and model vehicles.
The Team’s focus on quality does not go unnoticed, with Glaser’s having won Best Body Shop in Louisville several times and awarded the 2017 A-List Best Body Shop.
