1Collision Network Acquires Direct Repair Shop Network

Members of the California-based network of collision repair shops founded by John Torchia have been invited to apply for affiliation with the 1Collision Network.

1collision-ogoThe 1Collision Network has acquired the Direct Repair Shop Network (DRSN), a California-based network of quality collision repair shops.

“As I personally transition into a new segment within the collision repair industry, I searched for a collision repair group that would be a viable option for the DRSN shops, and 1Collision was the best fit,” said John Torchia, founder of DRSN.

1Collision Network President Jim Keller added, “Having John Torchia recommend his DRSN shops to affiliate with 1Collision validates our business model, and is the logical next step for them to prepare for their successful future in the ever-changing collision repair industry.”

DRSN members have been informed of the acquisition and have been invited to apply for affiliation with the 1Collision Network.

A special 1Collision Network event will be co-located at NACE | CARS for DRSN shop owners and managers, as well as any other shops that have interest in the 1Collision Network opportunity. For further information or to register for the event, visit http://www.1collisionnetwork.com/.
