April 16, 2013—The Boyd Group Inc. this week opened four new collision repair centers—three in North Carolina and one in Florida.

The Boyd Group has acquired Wilmington, N.C.-based Wilmington Paint & Body Works and Factory Finish Collision Center, and Durham, N.C.-based CBS Quality Cars. The company also acquired Express Auto Body in Lakeland, Fla.

Each of the shop locations will operate under the Gerber Collision & Glass trade name. With these additions, The Boyd Group now operates 22 shop locations in North Carolina and 38 in Florida. The company has a total of 185 collision repair locations throughout 14 U.S. states.

"The opening of these new locations is in line with our stated growth strategy of achieving 6-10 percent of growth in number of centers through single location additions," said Tim O'Day, president and chief operations officer of The Boyd Group. "These centers allow us to better serve customers and insurance partners in these markets and we plan to continue to focus on expanding our presence in similar attractive U.S. markets."
