Chicago, Illinois - August 1, 2016
- The Boyd Group Inc. (the “Boyd Group” or “Boyd”) today announced that it has acquired a multi-store operation (“MSO”) in Ohio and Kentucky consisting of ten collision repair centers located in the Cincinnati region. The centers were founded in 1990 and previously operated as Collision Care Centers.

The new centers are located in the Ohio communities of Blue Ash, Cincinnati (two locations), Fairfield, Lebanon, Madeira, Maineville, Milford, and Wilmington, with an additional location in Southgate, Kentucky.

“We are very excited to add these new locations, which have served the Cincinnati market area well for over 25 years,” said Tim O’Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group’s U.S. operations. “We look forward to becoming part of these communities and the opportunity to provide the friendly service and quality repairs that Gerber is known for.”

“These repair centers are important additions to our portfolio which complement our recently added locations in Dayton, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana to create an expanded footprint in the Midwest. As well, with this acquisition Gerber has established a presence in Kentucky, its 20th state,” added Mr. O’Day.

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 at the contact coordinates below for more information.
