Chicago, Illinois - April 30, 2018 - The Boyd Group Inc. (the “Boyd Group”) today announced the April 17th acquisition and April 18th opening of three collision repair locations in the Seattle, Washington area. These centers were previously operated as Professional Collision Group and are located in northern Seattle and the suburbs of Mukilteo and Lynnwood. The Seattle metropolitan area is one of the fastest growing in the United States and all three centers are located in proximity to the heavily travelled interstate 5 and 405 highways
“These new locations are a reflection of our continuing strategy to increase our presence in the most attractive U.S. markets,” said Tim O’Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group. “They also complement our other centers in the region and establish a foothold in new communities, allowing us to better serve new customers and our insurance partners. We look forward to continuing to serve Seattle with the Gerber brand of professional and friendly service.”
