Rich Crompton would naturally open an auto body shop.
When he was a child he was always drawn to cars, so when he was old enough he started working at his brother-in-law’s body shop. After high school, Rich Sr. worked at local auto dealerships and small collision shops.
In 1982, Rich Sr. started renting space from Geschke’s Gas Station located at 1602 Asbury Avenue to run his own business. Unfortunately, 3 years later, Mr. Geschke passed away and Rich purchased the entire building, tearing out the fuel pumps and making the site a full time auto body repair shop.
Over 35 years later, Rich’s Auto Body is run from the same location on Asbury Avenue. Family owned, the business has flourished.
