History

Fulfilling a life-long dream of starting their own business, Gene Degollada opened what Stuttgart International Auto was meant to be in 1955. Committed to a high level of customer satisfaction, his goal was to offer the highest quality collision repair and paint refinishing services for both domestic and foreign autos in Chile.

Stuttgart Intl started as a repair facility in Santiago Chile as a dream then moved to USA and quickly became well-known for providing exceptional repairs. It has grown over the years to double the size of the facility and its staff which enables it to service customers from all of Florida. Stuttgart intl is always focused on working with manufacturers to ensure its technicians were well trained. Our technicians have the latest equipment to perform the repairs necessary to restore a collision damaged vehicle to the manufacture’s specifications.

Combining a fine eye for detail and workmanship with a genuine desire to make the customer experience a positive one, Degollada plans to keep customer service the primary focus.

As a repair and refinishing specialist, Gene Degollada provides a level of expertise gained over 50+ years in the industry, starting with his family-owned shop in Chile to highly recognized shops in New York and Florida. His family’s heritage in repair and refinishing spans 50+ years, while being recognized as a premiere restoration shop throughout the country.

“Refinishing is an art, and my passion is attending to the detail and beauty of an automobile. Collision repair and refinishing are often the result of an unpleasant experience for people. We want to make them feel better and restore pride in the appearance of their car,” notes Degollada.

Partnering with a market leader in global paint supply, staying current with continuing education, and utilizing the latest technologies will set the standard for service in the Masters shop.
