Midway Paint & Body was founded by Michael Coates Sr. (photo above) in 1977 in Hughesville, Maryland. While living in Maryland, Michael continued to perfect his craft while building business at his own shop. Michael's’ wife Shalane (photo above) , Kiara (daughter), and Michael Coates Jr. (son) provided support to the shop, Michael Sr., and its’ many customers. After many years of living and working in Maryland, Michael Sr. relocated his family to Jacksonville, Florida in 2012. Choosing a location was difficult and being new to the city did not help, but all in all it was worth the blood sweat and tears.
Michael's’ experience is derived not only from collision repair but in the past has mainly focused on custom paint work. Michael Sr. has taken the strong family bond and their work ethic and built a company that has sustained a troubled economy and supported the community’s needs. Midway Paint & Body provides the luxury of 8 customer focused employees with combined 60 plus years of experience in the automotive paint and collision business. So if you’re looking for a family oriented customer focused company to trust with your business, you’ve found one!
