Gerber Collision & Glass Opens Repair Locations in Ohio

Chicago, Illinois – December 20, 2017 – The Boyd Group Inc. (the “Boyd Group” or “Boyd”) today announced the December 15, 2017 opening of three collision repair centers in the west side suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. The centers were previously operated as Suburban Collision Centers and are located in North Olmstead and Berea, two suburbs in Cuyahoga County. With a population of over 1.2 million, Cuyahoga is the second largest county in Cleveland. The three new Gerber locations are within a five-mile radius of one another and are situated less than seven miles west of Cleveland’s international airport.

“The opening of these three locations increases our presence by 50 percent in the Greater Cleveland area and allows us to serve new customers and our insurance partners west of the city,” said Tim O’Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group. “With the addition of three established locations we welcome a number of skilled technicians to our team and are pleased to have former owner, Angelo Papotto and team lead, Jason Voldrich assisting with the transition. We look forward to providing the North Olmstead and Berea communities with the professional and friendly service our Gerber locations are known for.”

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.
