Boyd Group Adds Locations on East, West Coasts
May 16, 2013—The Boyd Group Inc. on Wednesday announced the opening of two new collision repair centers in Gastonia, N.C., and Spokane, Wash.
The Boyd Group said its Gastonia, N.C., location near Charlotte, previously known as Sonny Hancock Collision Center, is roughly 24,000 square feet. The company’s Spokane, Wash., location, which previously operated as Swanson Auto Body, is about 15,000 square feet.
With these additions, the Boyd Group now operates 23 collision repair facilities in North Carolina, and 187 throughout 14 U.S. states. Both shops will operate under the Gerber Collision & Glass trade name.
"The openings of these two new locations are further examples of our execution of our stated growth strategy, which is to achieve 6-10 percent growth in number of centers through single-location additions," said Tim O'Day, president and chief operating officer of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "These new centers will allow us to introduce our brands into additional markets and better serve new customers and insurance partners. We continue to identify opportunities to expand our presence in similar attractive U.S. markets and will remain active in capitalizing on those opportunities."
