Meet the Team
With over 20 years of experience in the auto body industry, founder and owner Ben Lawrence formed and opened Collision Center of Andover in March of 2006. After working in and managing several prominent body shops in the greater Wichita area, he decided to invest in and open his own shop. It is independently owned and operated and is not part of any chain or affiliated with any other body shop. Prior to opening this shop, he accumulated five years of experience as an insurance adjuster in the Wichita area giving him a broad perspective on the relationships in and between customers, insurance companies, and repair facilities. Raised in the Andover, KS area and currently residing there with his family, he is involved in local politics and owns and operates several other area businesses.
