Eustis Body Shop began as a one-shop enterprise in 1979 when Doug Keller turned his childhood passion for cars into a thriving business. While the west was once the land of opportunity, the body shop expanded operations moving east in Nebraska. 

Once the southeast Lincoln location was selected, careful consideration was taken in reviewing the covenants of the development – which did not allow for a body shop to store damaged vehicles outside awaiting repair. As a resolution, a vertical stacker was designed into the building with provisions for a second to be added later. The design team also focused on the way vehicles enter the building, move through each stage of repair, and exit the building, with the goal of providing a more efficient workspace for each phase.
