Gerber Collision & Glass Opens Repair Locations in Florida and Grows to Over 500 Locations
Chicago, Illinois – January 23, 2018 – The Boyd Group Inc. (the “Boyd Group”) today announced the January 19, 2018 opening of two collision repair locations in Collier County, Florida. These centers were previously operated as Autocraft Enterprises and Autocraft Naples and are located on Marco Island and in northern Naples. Marco Island, the largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands and Naples, one of the most prosperous cities in the United States, are two of the most popular tourist destinations in Southwest Florida.
“These Gulf Coast locations simultaneously enhance synergies and broaden our footprint,” said Tim O’Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group. “The northern Naples center is positioned between our existing Naples and Estero locations while the Marco Island location expands our presence 18 miles south towards Florida’s Everglades.”
“We are proud to now serve our customers and insurance providers from more than 60 centers in Florida and over 500 locations across North America,” added Brock Bulbuck, CEO of the Boyd Group. “I would like to congratulate our corporate development, operations and all corporate support teams on this significant milestone achievement. We will continue to support their work as they execute on our goal of doubling our business by 2020.”
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 Stephen Boyd at the contact coordinates below for more information.
