In 1937, Phil Gerber opened Gerber Glass & Trim on Stony Island Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. Gerber operated as a glass company until 1978 when Neal Gerber, the grandson of Phil Gerber, expanded the business to include auto body repair in Skokie, Illinois. The Gerber family business grew to five locations by 1985 and was one of the first full-service, multi-location auto body shops in the United States.

In 1998, Eddie Cheskis partnered with Neal Gerber and set their sights on expansion. Gerber quickly grew to 16 centers throughout Chicagoland.

In 2004, The Boyd Group, Inc., a North American based auto collision company, acquired Gerber and changed the name of all facilities in the United States to Gerber Collision & Glass. This acquisition made Gerber one of the largest collision repair businesses in the United States.

Today, Gerber operates locations throughout North America with more than 2,000 employees.
