BELLAIRE - Ohio Valley PDR is the latest business to receive a welcoming ribbon-cutting from the Bellaire Area Chamber of Commerce. Located at 3665 Belmont Street, Ohio Valley PDR is owned by Bellaire residents Shane and Chasiti Winzenreid.
On Monday, members of the Chamber of Commerce and local business representatives including Fred Ottoson of the National Imperial Glass Museum and Adam Hughes of Hughes Xerographics gathered to welcome Ohio Valley PDR and cut the ribbon officially. Lou Ann Bennett, Chamber President and owner of Bennett Rental Property, said the chamber is working to welcome all Bellaire businesses that have opened fairly recently. They fell behind over the harsh winter, but have been picking up again lately.
PDR stands for paintless dent repair, which is Shane's specialty. He first honed his skills while working at JD's Auto in Moundsville. He's been in the business for about five years, traveling locally to repair vehicles. In May of last year, Shane opened Ohio Valley PDR.

Paintless dent repair applies to door dings, small dents, large dents and hail damage. Ohio Valley PDR also does full-service auto detailing, clean car bras/paint protection, vinyl graphics, custom vehicle lettering, vehicle undercoating, minor mechanical repair and windshield chip repair.
Since September, Ohio Valley PDR has been a distributor of ArmorThane coating. ArmorThane can be used for sprayed-on truck bedliners, as well as a protective barrier for rocker panels, bumpers, door bottoms, fender flares.
Shane's wife, Chasiti, jokes that he loves cars even more than her, and said he has always been an auto enthusiast. Chasiti works at the business doing scheduling and office work when she can, and she also has a full-time job at Wheeling Island Casino.
"I'm the brains and he's the talent," she said.
Shane's father also contributes at Ohio Valley PDR, and Chasiti's nephew is learning the trade, making it a developing family affair. Shane has also received some help from his friend Josh Miller, who recently opened Elite Auto Glass in Moundsville.
Ohio Valley PDR is open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday by appointment. Call 740-338-9143 or go to facebook.com/OhioValleyPDR to learn more.
