July 8, 2013

by Jenna Reed,

The Boyd Group has acquired the assets of Shenandoah Collision Center, in Newnan, Ga. The center is now operating under the Gerber Collision & Glass name and offers auto glass repair and replacement.

"We are not set up to do Gerber auto glass work yet, but we will be soon," says a representative who answered the phone at the location.

Another representative said the location is just getting set up and does not yet have a manager.

The new center is located about 30 miles Southwest of Atlanta and is approximately 12,500 square feet. Winnipeg, Manitoba-based Boyd Group is the parent company of Geber Collision & Glass.

With this addition, the Boyd Group owns and operates 14 centers in Georgia, bringing the number of U.S. locations to 187.

The terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

"This new addition to the Boyd Group is indicative of our commitment to our strategy to achieve 6 to 10 percent growth in the number of centers through single-location additions," says Tim O'Day, president and chief operating officer of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "We continue to look for opportunities to expand within our current markets and will continue to capitalize on accretive opportunities."

The Boyd Group also announced it has merged two of its existing locations in Schaumburg, Ill., into one facility to improve efficiencies.

Boyd Group officials have not yet responded to request for further comment at press time.
