Mike Rose Auto Body acquires California shop
June 19, 2012—Mike Rose Auto Body based in Concord, Calif., on Monday announced the opening of its ninth collision repair facility in Fairfield, Calif.
Mike Rose Auto Body’s acquisition of the new 16,000-square-foot shop, previously known as Watson’s Auto Body of Fairfield, is its second expansion effort in 2012. The company opened a facility in Lafayette, Calif., in January.

Mike’s Auto Body was the company of choice because they clearly embrace the same principles,” said Scott Watson, former owner of the shop acquired by Mike Rose Auto Body.
“We’ve been looking for the right location to expand and Scott Watson has established himself over the last 30 years as a high integrity, community-based quality operator, and that fits our model perfectly. We are in a growth mode right now and diligently looking for quality repair facility’s to join the Mike’s Auto Body team,” said Brennan Rose, vice president of Mike Rose Auto Body. “We have always wanted to expand into Solano County, and when the opportunity to acquire Watson’s Auto Body of Fairfield came our way, we jumped on it.”
