May 7, 2012

May 7, 2012—Roseville, Calif.-based Cooks Collision Centers has acquired six collision repair locations previously owned by Holmes Body Shop in Southern California.

With the acquisition, Cooks Collision Centers now operates 25 collision repair facilities in the California communities of Alhambra, Canoga Park, Duarte, El Segundo, Riverside and Westlake Village. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“We are very excited about Cooks Collision assuming ownership of our six locations,” said Tom Holmes, owner and CEO of Holmes Body Shop. "Since 1972, our team has focused on delivering outstanding customer service and quality collision repairs to our customers. We made our final decision to join the Cooks team based on the honesty and integrity of the entire Wood family and Cooks employees that we met and dealt with. Our team is excited to join the Cooks Collision organization.”

Cooks Collision said Holmes will continue to own and operate the Holmes Body Shop location in Pasadena, Calif.

“The acquisition of the six Holmes locations is a key step in executing our strategic plan by expanding to the Los Angeles basin and serving Southern California consumers," said Rick Wood, co-CEO of Cooks Collision Centers. “Cooks Collision is committed to providing our new Southern California customers the same high quality collision repair, customer service and value that our Northern California customers have come to expect for the past 33 years.”

Chris Rose, vice president of Southern California operations for Cooks Collision, said the company plans to add several more collision repair locations throughout the Southern California market in the future.
