DeVries Custom Coachworks was established in 1958 by Ted DeVries. Ted owned and operated the business until 2002 when he sold the shop to Dave and Kathy Wade. Originally from Pennsylvania, Dave and Kathy relocated to Arizona in 2000 when Kathy was offered a nursing job in the area. After falling in love with the beautiful views and the small town community, they decided to make Wickenburg home. Dave became the lead painter for DeVries and was quickly promoted shop manager. When Ted was ready to retire, Dave grabbed the opportunity to become a small business owner and bought the business.
Dave has over 30 years experience in the automotive industry and has combined his passion for classic car restorations to the collision repair industry. He believes that every customer should receive nothing short of an excellent repair and show quality refinishing work. This philosophy has enabled Dave and Kathy to double the business and carry on the trusted name of DeVries Custom Coachworks.
