After fifteen years working in local auto body shops as both a Shop Manager and Director of Operations, Tom Bemiller opened Aureus Auto Body in 2012, determined to improve the repair experience for everyone.

"I'm not a 'car guy' but after about a decade and a half in this industry, I concluded that just about everybody in the business is frustrated, tired, and beat down. As an industry, we severely lack leadership, which creates awful work environments. A bad employee experience translates directly into poor customer experiences, and it's no surprise then, that everybody hates getting their car fixed. I started The Aureus Group because work doesn't have to suck." -Tom Bemiller

Today, The Aureus Group serves as the management company for auto body shops located in Chester, Montgomery, and Delaware Counties in Pennsylvania. For us, it's not about repairing cars; it's about Repairing the Repair® Process

Our goal is to be the best company to work for in this industry. That means we will be the best company at developing people both professionally and personally. That means we will be the best at fixing cars. That means we will create opportunities for people to advance, all the way to shop ownership. That means you can feel satisfied with your hard work and go home happy at the end of each day. 

"I know that if we can improve the employee experience, we will also, by default, improve the customer experience...and that is what we are all about at The Aureus Group." -Tom Bemiller

No matter if it’s a ding, a dent, a scratch, or a broken light or mirror, we repair all makes and models of both foreign and domestic vehicles. We will perform the repairs to your vehicle with the same care and attention to detail as we would if we were working on our own cars, you can count on it!

Paint Work

Achieving a flawless paint job and perfect color match is both a science and an art. We utilize a state-of-the-art computerized color match system combined with the skills and experience of ASE Certified and PPG factory-trained technicians to ensure an undetectable repair. We consider luster, shine, depth, and weather resistance factors before finalizing the color match, crucial when painting only part of a vehicle.

  • Selection of 10,000 colors and effects
  • Our oversized paint booths accommodate large trucks 


We provide complete auto body and collision services for companies operating a fleet. We understand the true cost of down-time for your fleet vehicles so we offer free pick-up and delivery, expedited repair status, and insurance claim management. Contact us to discuss your fleet repair needs.
