About MSR Collision Centre

The origins of MSR Collision Centre date back to the late 1970’s when husband and wife team Bruce and Ruth McCracken opened a panel shop in Slacks Creek by the name of Southside Body Works. A family business, they focused on quality and integrity in the daily operation and this approach soon saw them approached to open a second site at Mt Gravatt. This second shop traded as Mt Gravatt Smash Repairs and occupied a large site on Mains Road at Macgregor for 23 years, until in 2010, the site was sold for development.

The decision was made to relocate Mt Gravatt Smash Repairs and a suitable building was found in nearby Mansfield, where MSR Collision Centre opened in June 2011, under the supervision of Bruce and Ruth’s son, Howard McCracken and his family. In 2014, two more sites were opened, one at Mansfield, under the ACM Autobody brand, and a state of the art, flagship shop in Underwood. In 2017, the decision was made to acquire another site in Beenleigh and today, Howard and his wife Alison operate 5 MSR Collision sites, using the same values of honesty and quality that they have always found important.
