est. 1996

Kolors by Keisler was founded in 1996 by Lonnie Keisler out of Lexington, South Carolina. Lovingly known by family and team members as “The Bodyshop”, we are committed to providing the best experience in auto repairs while ensuring quality workmanship. Some of the first employees of Kolors By Keisler included Lonnie’s parents, Bruce and Jean Keisler, who supported the business from the ground up (quite literally). Today, Kolors By Keisler continues to be a family run business, that is customer driven.


Lonnie Keisler, Owner/ Operator

Beginning at the age of five, Lonnie began his introduction to the bodyshop business by training through his grandfather, Marvin “Chief” Keisler, owner of Keisler’s Bodyshop. This childhood, along with his exposure to his father’s employment at the GM Dealership as a mechanic, helped grow him into the well rounded owner and manager of his own bodyshop, Kolors By Keisler, today. With 25+ years of experience, and full iCar certification, Lonnie is committed to ensuring you leave our business with the quality of service you desire.

On the day-to-day, Lonnie handles estimating of heavy duty vehicles, collaborates with major fleet companies, oversees bodyshop operations, and researches to purchase the newest and best equipment for the safest and most efficient repairs. He also ensures none of his jobs leave the premises without inspection for top quality.
