Gerber Collision & Glass Opens New Repair Centers in Washington and Florida

Chicago, Illinois - February 20, 2013 - The Boyd Group Inc. (the “Boyd Group”) today announced the opening of a new repair center in Washington and one in Florida. The Boyd Group now operates 181 locations in the U.S.

The first center, located in Stanwood, Washington, is approximately 4,500 square feet in size and previously operated as Twin City Collision. It now operates under the Gerber Collision & Glass trade name. With this addition, the Boyd Group owns and operates 14 repair centers in Washington.

The second center in St. Cloud, Florida is approximately 26,000 square feet in size. It was part of the 11 centers acquired with The Recovery Room acquisition in November 2012, but was closed for approximately a year prior to the acquisition. It has now reopened and operates under the Gerber Collision & Glass trade name.

“As we have done over the past few years, we continue our focus of expanding our business in attractive U.S. markets. The new location in Stanwood helps develop the Gerber footprint in Washington and allows us to better serve customers and insurance partners located between our current locations in Burlington and Marysville.” said Tim O’Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group’s U.S. operations. “We also welcome the reopening of the St. Cloud location, which will serve Orlando and Kissimmee suburban area customers. This center is situated in an attractive location with good visibility for those traveling on the E. Irlo Bronson Memorial Highway.”

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.
