Jerry Epstein and Scott LaBerge started Paramount Collision in 1994, bringing with them many years of experience from different ends of the auto body repair industry.
The dream of owning their own facility began when Scott went to work for a high quality
shop that Jerry managed in downtown San Francisco. With 20 years of experience at that
time as a bodyman, Scott became the top technician in the shop. Jerry had previously worked
as a insurance appraiser for seven years using that experience to assist customers through the
insurance claim process. After working together for 10 years, the two planned to join their skills
by opening their own high quality facility, and from there, Paramount Collision was born.
