AutoBody America Opens Ninth Location

AutoBody America – a multi-shop, independent operator of collision repair facilities in Tennessee and Northern Mississippi – has opened its ninth location in Nashville, Tenn.

The new, state-of-the-art 25,000-square-foot collision repair center is located at 530 Collins Drive in the Hickory Hollow suburb of Nashville.

According to Pat James, founder and president of AutoBody America, the opening of the Hickory Hollow location represents a significant step for the company in further establishing its Middle Tennessee presence.

“The Hickory Hollow location allows us to better serve customers in Nashville and the surrounding markets, but also offers us the opportunity to place our corporate functions more centrally within the overall Tennessee market to help facilitate our future expansion,” James said. “The opening of this center demonstrates our ongoing commitment to being responsive to our customer’s needs. Like other AutoBody America locations, the Hickory Hollow staff will work closely with PPG to implement our lean production model designed to improve repair quality, significantly decrease repair time and improve the customer experience.”

AutoBody America says that the addition of the Nashville location further extends its position as the leading collision repair provider in Tennessee, and the company says it plans to continue developing repair centers throughout Tennessee.
