About Us

Gary and Judy Mahnke are Colorado natives.
They founded their first auto body shop in 1975 and built their reputation by consistently providing great customer service and excellent auto body repairs and paint for nearly fifty years.
In 2018, their son, CEO Sam Mahnke and nephew, Joel Mahnke opened up the Mahnke shop in Gunnison. Joel grew up in Telluride. He understands life in the mountains and is proud and happy to call Gunnison “home.”
Mahnke combines a family atmosphere with high tech repairs. They won't hesitate to repair the old cattle truck and get it back on the road, at the same time Mahnke Techs have advanced certifications to repair brand-new aluminum Ford F150s with ADAS Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems technology.
Sam Mahnke is building this generation of Mahnke shops on the sound foundational values his parents laid down, one of which is ''Continual Improvement.'' Vehicle technology and repair is changing, it's a combination of mechanical knowledge and talent plus instant access to vast quantity of software and data. Sam has invested in the high tech equipment, tools, certifications, and training for his employees to meet all challenges and opportunities.
Mahnke is here to provide the repairs needed for whatever type of vehicle comes to our doors. We’re here to serve the people of Gunnison Valley, Crested Butte, Lake City and surrounds. From cow dented ‘60’s Chevy trucks to the hottest new Ram trucks and off-roading Jeeps
and Toyotas. We’re happy to help. Mahnke offers Free Online Photo Estimates as well as Free In Person estimates.
