Our shop

Our history

1978: Ioannis  Ch. Panaretos  opens up one of the first car body shops of Corfu island in Potamos (next to the river). That car body shop was the source of inspiration as well as working experience for many professionals of the Corfu island..

1998: Twenty years later Christos I. Panaretos, son of Ioannis, takes over the car body shop and continues to grow the family business. Christos Panaretos was actually raised in the shops and had been working there during school vacations and summers.

2001: The shop gets transfered to a new building (300 sqm) in Ethnikis Paleokastritsas 78 Solari and Christos Panaretos starts a new cooperation along with Giorgos Kourkoulos, a family business associate from the early years.

Today: The car body shop Panaretos Christos – Kourkoulos Giorgos E.E.
