” Edward J. Henry and Sons Auto Body Specialist was established in 1943 by Edward J. Henry Sr. Ed Sr. was a blacksmith and naturally progressed from metal work into auto body sheet metal repair in the early 1940′s. The current shop has been located at 2300 W. 4th Street in Wilmington, Delaware since 1943, over 70 years!

In the mid-1960s the second generation of Henry’s took over when Edward J. Henry Jr. began running the shop. Over time we have grown from our original 1 building 4 repair bays to over 3 buildings including a paint shop over 22,000 square feet under roof.

The third generation of Henrys’ began running the shop when Ed Jr. retired in 1994. Since then Ed’s son – Edward J. Henry III – two daughters -Cathy May & Ann Marie Thomas – and son-in-law – Buck Thomas – have run this family owned and operated business.

In April of 2018 the Henry’s sold the business to Zach Dillard, a Wilmington Delaware native. As the former owner and operator of Wilmington Collision Center Zach was set up for success and continues to operate Edward J Henry & Sons with the same family values and integrity as before. He has brought the business into modern times by updating the facility and purchasing new equipment to ensure repairs are performed safely and efficiently.”
