NEWPORT — Newport Collision Center has new owners.

Steve Adams and Heather Hegi bought the business in December.

Previously, they owned Crystal Auto Spa and Auto Body in Crystal. They closed that location and merged the two businesses.

"Otherwise, it's business as usual," Adams said. "All the same staff has stayed on."

They bought the shop from Dave and Kathy Baker, who retired after running the business since 2001. Newport Collision Center has operated in the same location since 1982.

"When we found out the business was for sale, we looked at it. It looked like an area that was opportune for growth," Adams said.

They offer paintless dent repair, detailing and light duty body repair. For more information, call 651-459-0581.
