GM Panelbeating is a family business, owned and operated by Glen Millar and his wife Neroli. With a team of 6 working on-site at 7 Racecourse Road, they are respected and dedicated members of the Central Hawke’s Bay community not only as a quality provider of panelbeating and vehicle repair services, but as employers and also as active participants in many community groups. Staunch supporters of the local St John and the Waipukurau Fire Brigade, their focus on safety in the community at all levels is well known.
Glen Millar – Owner/Director
Glen started his panelbeating at Mike Finnimore and after completing his trade certificate decided to venture out on his own. Glen started his own business at 2 Wellington Road out of his own garage. After the business grew quickly, he took another step and purchased 7 Racecourse Road in Waipukurau. Ten years later, GM Panelbeaters has a highly skilled team of panelbeaters and paint technicians with the latest equipment. They also hold contracts with all major insurance companies and are quality assured by both the Collision Repair Association (CRA) and the Motor Trader Association (MTA).
