Trenton Mathew

Job: Paint and Body Technician

My name is Trenton, born and raised in small town Homer, Alaska. I have a little girl and a boy and happily married to my wife Haley! I’ve commercial fished a few years of my life and then I decided it was time to go to college. In 2013 I attended Wyotech in Laramie, Wyoming. After college I went back to Alaska to commercial fish for the summer and then I flew to Denver, Colorado and bought a car and drove to St. Cloud, Minnesota for my first job. I worked at Gatr truck center for roughly 2 years and then started a new job at KC autobody. Worked with them for 4 years and then my wife decided she wanted to move back to Alaska. We ended up leaving April 2017 when we found out we were expecting and wanted to be closer to my family. We stayed in Alaska till 2020 and ended up moving back to Winona, Minnesota in August of 2020! I remember I was in Canada and Chris called me asking if I have arrived in Minnesota yet because they were both excited for me to come in and have an interview as soon as I got to town. I have been working here since August and am enjoying every bit of it and hopefully one day I will be able to take over for them! It has been a pleasure working with Dave and Chris and can honestly say they have been the best employers I’ve ever had!

The original paint color on repair was incorrect. Redoing the paint to match was done quickly and without question. That was appreciated very much. Great job!
