WRIGHT BROTHERS COLLISION/FLINT AUTO
GLASS, was founded in downtown Flint, MI. in 1951 by brothers Al, Fred
and Bill Wright. The original location was in Buckham Alley, but the business
soon moved to Water St. west of Saginaw St., where it remained at two
addresses next door to each other till the early 1970's, when the City
of Flint forced the businesses on the riverfront to sell to make room
for the New Hyatt Hotel. Bill eventually left the family business to start his own business.
The "Brothers" wanted to retain their downtown customer base so they moved to 1802 S. Saginaw St. at the corner of 13th St., re-opening at the new location in 1973.
In 1976, Al sold his share of the business to his son Greg and retired. In 1978 after it was discovered that he had cancer, Fred sold his share to Greg making Greg the sole owner of Wright Brothers Collision and Flint Auto Glass.
GROWTH & CHANGE
In 1985 Greg hired Ron Brooks to assist him in running the business. This partnership has proven successful growing the S. Saginaw St. location in both size and number of cars repaired per month.
In 1995 Wright Brothers Collision/Flint Auto Glass had out grown its downtown location and the search for a larger location began. Greg purchased the property on Hill Rd. and made plans for a new building. On February 4, 1996 our new STATE OF THE ART REPAIR FACILITY opened at 1436 W. Hill Rd. Two years later an addition was added to allow for the continued growth.
General Manager Ron Brooks and a very reliable staff will provide you with the same helpful, friendly, honest, prompt, service that the Wright Brothers Collision has been known for since 1951.
