Ernie Patti Collision Center

D.B.A.: Ernie Patti Collision Center

My name is Gene J. Staat Sr. I have managed Ernie Patti Collision for over 25 years. I previously worked as a Collision Technician for 17 years.

In the year 2006, Ernie Patti decided to retire from the collision business and offered me the opportunity to purchase the business. My goal has always been to deliver the best repair product that there is available. We have the latest equipment, from Chief Laser Measuring System, to one of the most accurate Hunter Alignment Machines. I want to give the customer a quality repair so they will remember us. Tony Patzius is my business partner. He is the very best technician I have ever been associated with in the years I have been in the business. The manager, Josh Staat who has worked with me 17 years, understands what it takes to keep our customers and business partners happy. I know our future in the area can be successful and we can continue to provide our customers with the highest quality and great service, this puts our company second to none. As a company we plan on making sure we are a part of the new development in the area that makes the south St. Louis City area even better in the future.
