Lloydminster Auto Body and Lloydminster Paint and Supplies Ltd., two staples in the Border City since the late 60s and early 70s, have recently relocated to 5003 40 Ave. in the northeast industrial park and are loving their new space.

Lloydminster Auto Body originally opened in 1964 on the north end of town and moved into the then-newly built location on Highway 16 in the late 60s, with Lloydminster Paint and Supplies. opening in the same building in March of 1977.

The businesses were the brainchildren of Dowain Fischer and Alex Telidetzki, with Daryl Fischer taking over after they retired. With a history of always being owned and operated by locals, the businesses were sold to the Lozowchuk family in 2020, with Ijon and wife, Charmen, now running things with their daughters, Paige and Paris. 

Both businesses have specialized in the automotive, industrial and aviation sectors since the takeover.

With the added space in the new location, the Lozowchuks are also excited to announce the addition of the RV of HD divisions. With these additions, the Lloyd Auto Body side of things has been rebranded under Lloydminster Autobody HD Division, with Lloydminster Paint and Supplies located in the same building just south of Brandt Truck and Trailer.

“We bought the business before COVID and we’re now moving it over to the old Transform Crane building on the east end of town,” said Paige Lozowchuk.

“We’re starting fresh with a bigger showroom, more space, essentially, and we’re going to get more into automotive parts such as RV parts, heavy duty parts, as well as our normal body shop. We’ll also be keeping with automotive paint and everything that goes with that, and we have two shop managers at the new location who are running the back and doing the SGI work.”

Lozowchuk also noted whether it’s sandblasting or spray guns, Lloydminster Paint and Supplies has everything you need to professionally paint a car. 

“It’ll be good to have a fresh building with more storage and more paint options,” she said. “It’s going to be great.”

The Lozowchuks also wanted to express their immense appreciation for long-time employee and paint specialist Steve Nuspl, who has been with Lloydminster Paint and Supplies since Sept. 23, 1975, and is celebrating some greatly earned retirement.

“We want to thank Steve and the many people who have had a part in building Lloydminster Paint and Supplies’ legacy and reputation,” said the Lozowchuks.

“Thank you all. We look forward to serving our community and surrounding areas for many more years to come.”
