WICHITA — A new automotive shop is going to open in Derby at 122 N. Georgie, which was home to Shelton Collision Repair for more than three decades until its recent move.
Casey Kallhoff, who has worked for Advance Auto Parts for the last five years, is opening Auto-Motion.
“I just wanted to … have my own business,” Kallhoff says.
He says he and his staff of four will work on all makes and models but will specialize on later-model vehicles.
Kallhoff is leasing about 6,000 square feet of the 8,600-square-foot space.
“It will be huge,” he says. “We’ve got a lot of room to grow and add things and get bigger in the future.”
Grant Glasgow of NAI Martens handled the lease.
Auto-Motion will open in early January.
Kallhoff says Shelton Collision Repair will use the remainder of the building as overflow from its new shop, which is at 325 W. Patriot.
