Our History

From humble beginnings, as a small panel beating operation, with limited resources in a business unit in Woodstock, Cape Town, Auto Prism began operations approximately 13 years ago.

In 2001 Auto Prism was acquired by a new owner and up till today is a continuing Black Empowerment success story. Auto Prism is a fully empowered, independent major structural repairer and consists of a highly motivated team with a winning attitude.

Mr Brian Minaar acquired Auto Prism in 2001. In this short period he has grown the business from a small panel beating shop to what is today a major structural repairer that meets all SAMBRA requirements. He is well respected in the panel beating industry and his skills, knowledge and passion has been instrumental in the success of the business. He also provides the strong leadership required for any business.

“Today Auto Prism is well recognized in the quality service panel beating industry. This has largely been realized through the vision and prudent management by the owner, as well the shared passion for success of a highly motivated work force. Coupled with continued extensive investment in hi–tech equipment and software systems Auto Prism is kept on the leading edge of world panel beating techniques and innovations”
