Jan. 2, 2013—The 1Collision Network, a group of independent Midwest auto body shops that exchange best practices for performance, has added six repair centers to its network.

"We are proud to have this group of shops join the 1Collision Network family; each of these locations brings a tradition of excellence to our brand,” said Jim Keller, president of the 1Collision Network.

The six shops added to the 1Collision Network—based in Illinois, Wisconsin and Iowa—include the following:

• Nick & Earnies Autoworks1 in Skokie, Ill.

"Our decision to affiliate with the 1Collision Network was based on their Midwest focus, diverse variety of services and support offered, and their emphasis on performance and marketing,” said Ernie Loggarakis, owner of Nick & Ernies Autoworks1.

• Link Collision Center1 in Rice Lake, Wis.

"Link Collision is very excited to be given the opportunity to join the 1Collision Network. I expect our business to grow in 2013 due to our partnership with 1Collision,” said Daniel Clark, chief operations officer of Link Collision Center1.

• BODYPROS, a four-shop operation in Des Moines, Iowa, that owns Ace Body and Motor1, Altoona Auto Body1, Ankeny Auto Body1 and RJones Collision1.

"The 1Collision Network provided an opportunity for BODYPROS to become a part of a regional group of shops, providing us with solutions for the many business challenges shops face in today's competitive marketplace,” said Bob Jones, president of BODYPROS.
