Abels has remained in the same location since 1978. It was purchased by its new owner Dimas Quintana.

Abels has been a staple in San Antonio as a minority family owned business.

The location started back in the 1920’s like an ice manufacturing plant named, “Arctic Ice” from what is know it was then purchased by the Carnation milk company. Then in 1978 was transformed into a body shop by its previous owner.

Abel’s Body & Paint shop have included doing business with entities such as C.P.S., Holes of San Antonio, Carmax, Progressive, MetLife, State Farm, USAA,(to name a few insurances), Amtech lighting and Airforce entertainment. And of course many repeat customers, who have been faithful to Abel’s Body & Paint Shop, recommending us to their family and friends.
One business decision of Abel was to hire his son-in-law, Dimas Quintana, in May of 1999. After a few months working at Abel’s, Dimas decided on his own to move into the office and tackle some responsibilities. Dimas eventually took over making himself service writer, manager and finally general manager. Dimas has never looked back, Abel’s has grown at a steady pace since Dimas took charge of the business.
Abels has a long history of dealing with all types of customers, from walk-in customers to dealers and fleet accounts.

Abels has and is known to deal with any and all vehicle insurance companies. There is not a company that we probably haven’t worked with, As history has it changes will always come when we least expect it.

Owner Dimas Quintana, with the help his wife Rose Quintana, who is the office manager/Accounts Payable and their kids, Dimas Jr., Christian, Julianna and the youngest Francisco, promise to always stick family, faith, and respect for themselves as well as their customers.
