Chicago, Illinois - November 14, 2013 - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd Group") today announced the opening of three new repair centers in Arizona, located in the areas of Gilbert, Scottsdale and Tempe. All three locations were previously operated under the name of Certified Collision Centers. With these new additions, the Boyd Group now operates 15 repair centers in Arizona bringing the total number of U.S. locations in operation to 219, including those branded as Hansen Collision and Glass.
The Gilbert location is approximately 8,600 square feet and is located approximately 20 miles southeast of Phoenix. It is well-situated in a fast growing, suburban area which will better assist our insurance partners while increasing our brand visibility in suburban markets. Additionally, the Scottsdale location is approximately 8,500 square feet and is approximately five miles from our existing Scottsdale location which allows us to further increase our presence in the area. Finally, the Tempe location will be the second in the area and is approximately 8,000 square feet.
"We continue to be successful in adding single-locations and executing on our strategy to grow 6-10% through single-location additions," said Tim O'Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "These three new additions in Arizona allow us to further expand our presence and better serve prospective and existing customers as well as our insurance partners."
The Boyd Group is continuously looking to add new collision repair locations to its existing network in Canada and the U.S. Interested collision repair center owners are asked to contact Kim Allen at the contact coordinates below for more information.
