The Willkommen Committee visited Bode Collision and Glass to congratulate them on the name change. Neil Bode has worked at the business since 1986. He became a co-owner in 1986 and the full owner in 2007. He decided it was time to change the name from Shyd’s Body Shop to Bode Collision and Glass. There are 5 employees, each having his own specialty area. They do all vehicle maintenance and body work, plus sell tires and cars. Much of their body repair work results from deer hits. Neil is originally from Gibbon and has lived in New Ulm with his family for 30 years. Bode Collision is located at 911 20th North.
