Shane finished his apprenticeship in 1993 and became a qualified auto refinisher. For over 30 years he has worked with various aspects of the auto painting trade. Working with insurance, high end restoration and as a paint company tech for Resene automotive. Shane has engaged in many training opportunities including  training overseas in refinishing techniques and hydroprinting.


Shane had a vision of owning his own collision repair shop that would cater to both the private and insurance sectors. Bruce Raxworthy Panel & Paint became that shop with so much promise.

The shop has built its reputation on strong customer relationships that have contributed to its success. With a commitment to growth and investment in both equipment and team, Bruce Raxworthy's is producing the highest quality workmanship for its customers.
