Jim Sigel Automotive Collision Center
Jim Sigel Automotive is committed to offering their customers a complete automotive center; with sales, service, parts and paint and collision repair. Whether its minor paint repair or restoring your vehicle to its pre-accident condition, you want people working on your vehicle who know what they are doing.
Jim Sigel has been in the collision and paint repair business since 1968. Collision Center Manager, Geoff Phelps, has been working in the business for 13 years. He attended Universal Technical Institute and is certified in Collision Repair and Refinishing Technologies (CRRT.) Our technicians are also highly trained and do excellent work. When the collision repair involves more than paint and body repair, we utilize the expertise and experience of our adjoining Service Department to take care of additional technical issues that may arise from a collision.

* Waterborne Paint
After extensive research, discussion, and on-site visits at training facilities and other body shops, the decision was made to switch to PPG-brand waterborne. Our Collision Center was one of the first in Southern Oregon to use water based paint system and one of the few outside the Portland Metro Area.
- Reduces production of volatile organic compounds (VOC)
- Improves air quality
- Promotes health and safety of employees
Waterborne systems have been used by the major manufacturers like GM, Honda, BMW, and nearly all the others, for many years. Our use of a waterborne system will allow for better paint matches with a truer factory match, especially with metallic paints. And efficiency goes up with dry times between coats going from hours of heated baking to just minutes of blowing air with no heat. That will cut back the amount of natural gas used to heat the pain booths.
Jim Sigel Automotive has received an DEQ exemption form the motor vehicle and mobile equipment surface coating requirements of the National Emission Standard for Hazardous Air Pollutants, Paint Stripping and Miscellaneous Surface Coat Operations, because none of the coatings sprayed at our facility contain hazardous air pollutants listed in the federal rule.
