Our Team

Our Story

Serge & Olga Ivanov & Alex Strelets established Vincent Panel & Paint Ltd in 1993. It is a family owned and operated business.


Serge has over 38 years of motor industry experience both here and overseas. His commitment to excellence ensures every vehicle that enters his workshop receives the same attention to detail, regardless of age and model. This combination of practical skill and integrity has seen the business grow over the years.


While Serge was overseeing the workshop, his wife Olga played an active part in the business since its beginning. Working as office administrator she kept the paperwork up to date.

Over the years Serge continually passed on his lifetime of experience to his son Alex. With 18 years of practical experience in the repair and painting of damaged motor vehicles behind him, Alex is confident that there is not a job he can’t fix. He is committed to making your vehicle look as good as new again.

In 2010 the business moved from Howick to the Allen’s Road, East Tamaki site.


Now another change has happened where Alex has taken a greater responsibility in the running of the business and is now the Managing Director of Vincent Panel & Paint Ltd.


Vincent Panel & Paint Ltd is proud supporters of the Auckland Rescue Helicopter Trust & Ronald McDonald House.


Our team consists of top professionals with years of experience in automotive industry. Their expertise comes from expertise and training in the latest technology of vehicle repair.
