”Being brand-new to the industry, I sought out Industry support resources through my paint rep, who introduced me to several successful 1Collision shop owners in Minnesota that were immediately willing to talk and offer suggestions, and they recommended I reach out to 1Collision,” said Jim Gruber, owner of Countryside Body Shop. “My wife and I met with the 1Collision Leadership Team, and talked with a few of their locations, we knew this was the right group for us. Quality people that provide invaluable resources and genuinely want to help us succeed as independent collision shop owners”.
Added 1Collision President and COO Jim Keller, “Our recent record growth the past several months has been driven by repairers in the industry seeking competitive advantages to answer the rapid growth in market share consolidators have been achieving. The collision industry has plenty of room for the independent repair sector, however, more and more repair businesses owners are seeking effective competitive advantages.”
