AutoBody America Opens 12th Location in Tennessee

AutoBody America, a multi-shop operator with locations throughout Tennessee and Mississippi, has opened its 12th location. The completely renovated, 11,500-square-foot facility located in Chattanooga, Tenn., will serve customers in Central Chattanooga, East Ridge, Hixson, Ooltewah and Ringold in Northern Georgia.

According to Patrick James, CEO of AutoBody America, the new facility provides a presence in one of the fastest-growing markets in Tennessee.

“Chattanooga is a vibrant city with so much going for it economically, as evidenced by the downtown growth and Volkswagen building its new production facility there," he said. "Opening in Chattanooga also allows us to serve customers in six of the top seven population centers within the state of Tennessee.”

AutoBody America is the largest independently owned and operated collision repair organization in Tennessee. AutoBody America now operates facilities throughout Tennessee in the cities of Memphis, Nashville, Clarksville, Murfreesboro, Chattanooga, Jackson and Columbia. The company also has locations in Southaven and Jackson, Mississippi.
