The Boyd Group Opens Two New Repair Centers in Alberta and British Columbia
October 3, 2011
— The Boyd Group Inc. (the “Boyd Group”) today announced the acquisition of a collision repair center in Richmond, British Columbia and the opening of a new collision repair facility in Edmonton, Alberta. The Boyd Group now owns and operates 12 repair centers in Alberta and 11 in British Columbia (19 including licensed partner locations).
The Richmond, British Columbia and Edmonton, Alberta facilities operate under the Boyd Autobody & Glass trade name and are both approximately 15,000 square feet in size. The new repair center in Edmonton is a replacement of an existing facility in that area, with the advantage of being 30% larger and a better geographical fit with surrounding Boyd locations.
“The new facilities are both located in strategically important areas and are equipped to deliver outstanding service to their individual markets,” said Mr. Eric Danberg, President of the Boyd Group’s Canadian Operations. “The acquisition in Richmond, a repair center that has enjoyed a positive reputation for outstanding quality over the last two decades, provides for great exposure and accessibility. Additionally, replacing our existing facility in Edmonton with a new repair center that has a bright, open concept better lends itself to the continual adoption of lean principles as we continually improve processes and gain better efficiencies.”
The Boyd Group is continuously looking to add new collision repair locations to its existing network in Canada and the U.S. Interested collision repair center owners are asked to contact Kim Allen, Business Development Manager for Gerber Collision & Glass, for more information.About The Boyd Group Inc.
