AutoBody America Opens 19th Location in Fayetteville, Arkansas

Acquisition of Royal Coach Autobody puts AutoBody America's total Arkansas presence at three stores.

AutoBody America, a Nashville, Tenn.-based operator of collision repair facilities in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas, announced the acquisition of Royal Coach Autobody in Fayetteville, Ark. This is the company’s third location in Arkansas and increases the total number of AutoBody America stores to 19.

The 10,000-square-foot facility is located in the center of the business district and close to the University of Arkansas campus.

"Royal Coach fit perfectly into our growth plans for Northwest Arkansas," said Patrick James, CEO of AutoBody America. "This facility has an excellent reputation in the community, an energetic team in place, a beautiful, well-equipped collision center and a desirable location. Richard Greene built a business to be very proud of, and we look forward to carrying on his legacy in the market for years to come.” 

Added Richard Greene, “We’re so grateful to pass our business on to AutoBody America. My decision to retire was sealed once I met the AutoBody America management team. I know our employees, customers, suppliers and insurance partners will be well-served by such a fine group of individuals.”

“We’re extremely excited with this new opportunity," said Tim Wilkerson, AutoBody America’s area manager over Arkansas. "This acquisition solidifies our commitment of unsurpassed customer service to our Arkansas customers and our future expansion within the Midsouth.”

AutoBody America continues to seek quality companies and locations for
acquisition. Interested owners should contact Patrick James at [email protected].
