The Boyd Group announced the Jan. 19 opening of two auto body shops in Collier County, Fla.
The facilities previously were operated as Autocraft Enterprises and Autocraft Naples, respectively, and are located on Marco Island and in northern Naples.
Marco Island, the largest of Florida’s Ten Thousand Islands, and Naples, one of the most prosperous cities in the United States, are two of the most popular tourist destinations in Southwest Florida.
“These Gulf Coast locations simultaneously enhance synergies and broaden our footprint,” said Tim O’Day, president and COO of the Boyd Group. “The northern Naples center is positioned between our existing Naples and Estero locations, while the Marco Island location expands our presence 18 miles south towards Florida’s Everglades.”
Gerber Collision & Glass now has more than 60 stores in Florida and more than 500 across North America, according to Boyd Group CEO Brock Bulbuck.
“I would like to congratulate our corporate development, operations and all corporate support teams on this significant milestone achievement,” Bulbuck added. “We will continue to support their work as they execute on our goal of doubling our business by 2020.”
