May 17, 2013

The Boyd Group Inc. announced the opening of two new repair centers, one in Gastonia, N.C. and the other in Spokane, Wash. The Boyd Group now operates 187 locations in the U.S.

The new repair center located in Gastonia, N.C., is located approximately 20 miles west of Charlotte. The center is approximately 24,000 square feet and was previously operated under the name of Sonny Hancock Collision Center. The local shop now operates under the Gerber Collision & Glass name. With this addition, the Boyd Group owns and operates 23 repair centers in North Carolina.

Additionally, the new repair center in Washington is approximately 15,000 square feet. This center was previously operated as Swanson Auto Body, and now also operates under the Gerber Collision & Glass name. The Spokane addition is Gerber's first location in Eastern Washington.

"The openings of these two new locations are further examples of our execution of our stated growth strategy which is to achieve 6 to 10 percent growth in number of centers through single-location additions," says Tim O'Day, president and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations.

"These new centers will allow us to introduce our brands into additional markets and better serve new customers and insurance partners," he adds. "We continue to identify opportunities to expand our presence in similar attractive U.S. markets and will remain active in capitalizing on those opportunities."

"Unfortunately we are not able to comment on terms and matters beyond disclosed in this release," says Brock Bulkbuck, president and CEO of Boyd Group.
