Panel Beating

At Killen’s we have a team of qualified trade and apprentice panel beaters with some members having worked at Killen’s for nearly 40 years. Two of our panel beater tradesman, Kel and our workshop head foreman Dave are fully qualified and have been working in the motor repair industry for over 30 years, gaining valuable experience working with several makes and models of vehicles.

Rory and Rob are currently completing their panel beating apprenticeships. In early 2016 Rory began his four year apprenticeship while Rob entered his third year.
