After fifteen years of experience working in local auto body shops as both a Shop Manager and Director of Operations, Tom Bemiller decided in 2012 to open Aureus Auto Body, a full service auto body shop located in Zieglerville, PA.

The word Aureus is derived from the name of an ancient gold coin of Rome that was regularly issued from the 1st century BC to the beginning of the 4th century AD.  The aureus was about the same size as the denarius, but heavier due to the higher density of gold as opposed to that of silver. Naming a business after an ancient valuable gold coin captured the spirit of what the company hoped to represent – durability and value.

Today, The Aureus Group serves as the management company for a group of auto body shops located in Chester, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties in Pennsylvania. Each shop in the group has well-established roots in their community and a history of providing honest and reliable service to its customers. The Aureus Company’s mission is to continue this tradition with the experience and leadership of Tom Bemiller and his team.
