Kadel's acquires Alpine Auto Body shops

For The Review

Don Braden, president and CEO of Kadel’s Auto Body, a locally owned collision repair business, has acquired Alpine Auto Body and its three collision repair shops in Vancouver. The shops officially became members of Kadel’s family of collision repair centers May 19 and will continue to operate with the same staff.

“During the past 38 years, Alpine has grown into Clark County’s largest collision repair company as a result of our staff’s unwavering commitment to delivering quality repair and the loyalty of our customers,” Alpine founder Rod Cook said. “It has been an honor to serve our customers and a privilege to work with the best collision repair professionals in the industry.” Cook and his wife, Jane, plan to remain in the community.

“We are very excited to increase from one to four shops in Vancouver so that we can better serve our customers,” Braden said. “The Alpine Body Shops have operated under a lean process model bringing added value to our organization.”

Locally owned since 1954, Kadel’s Auto Body has 21 repair shops in Oregon, Washington and Idaho, including one in Lake Oswego.
