About Us

Even before he formally entered the business for himself, Ron Bitschenauer was doing work from a garage at his home. After a few years, however, Ron had the desire to start his own company-away from home. Ron launched the collision repair business in 1971 in the old Capital Trade School on By-pass 66. The business was also on Browning Road for a time before opening at the existing location. In 1976, when the spot on Clear Lake Avenue became available at the right price, the Bitschenauer's decided to move their company. Today, twenty-four years later, By-Pass Auto Body still sits on Clear Lake Avenue.
