History

Norgate Auto Body Ltd. was established in 1960 and has been locally owned and operated since its inception. Our satisfied and loyal customers, as well as positive word of mouth, have been the foundation of our success in Prince George for going on 60 years.

After only the first eight years in business, the shop (originally located on 6th Avenue) was at full capacity. The building next door was purchased and we underwent our first expansion. In 2010 the new location opened at 615 1st Avenue.

Norgate Auto Body is located in Prince George, but our customers come from all over central and northern BC, including the following communities: McBride, Fort St. James, Fort St. John, Vanderhoof, and Mackenzie.

The current owner, Kent Berg’s affiliation with Norgate goes back to the very beginning. In fact, the business was started by his parents, Alex and Louise Berg, along with co-founders John and Ruth Rempel.

Kent took an interest in the family business from a young age, which led to his completion of an apprenticeship. When his father retired, Kent became the manager. Eventually, Kent and his wife Rhonda took over the business as owner/operators.

There are currently twenty dedicated employees, whose professional expertise and outstanding customer service will undoubtedly keep Norgate Auto Body Ltd. thriving in Prince George for many years to come.
