Doffo Automotive Inc., began in 1980 with two brothers, Jorge and Marcelo Doffo opening the doors to their new venture, Doffo Auto Body. Jorge and Marcelo grew up with a passion for automobiles from their youth in Argentina, through their combined automotive educations. The design, construction and enjoyment of driving are elements in which they share a high level of understanding and appreciation.
Jorge and Marcelo see collision repair as the combination of aesthetics and craftsmanship, resulting in a safe vehicle. Their resolve is that your car’s repair will maintain or increase your car’s value.
Good partners in the community, their collision repair business was among the first businesses in the City of Santa Ana to participate in the Commercial Rehabilitation Program. The program encouraged businesses to restore underutilized buildings in the city. In so doing, the area began to improve and was no longer designated as “blighted”. In appreciation for their continued civic participation the City of Santa Ana proclaimed August 12th as Doffo Automotive Day.
Good Partner to the community and a reliable repair partner to their customers. Since 1980 that has been the Doffo’s formula for success.
