While working full time for Comtoise Autobody George always dreamed of owning his own business, in 1984 George took his life savings, rented a small shop on Columbia Street and began Primeau's Autobody Inc. In June of 1984 George realized his business was becoming a success and brought on his older brother Joe as a partner to oversee the office aspect of the business. By December of 1984 with the two's hard work and dedication the shop grew to big for the small shop they were renting and moved to it's current location at 9 High Street.
