B&R Body Shop has served the metro Charlotte area for more than 75 years in North Carolina with six locations in and around the Charlotte area as well as a location in Rock Hills, S.C.

“We are extremely excited to have the B&R Body Shop organization join forces with Caliber Collision as we continue to grow into the collision repair provider of choice in North and South Carolina,” said Caliber CEO Steve Grimshaw. “The B&R Body Shop facilities and management team are perfectly aligned with our purpose, vision and mission. Tommy Morgan, Brandon Hawkins and their team have consistently delivered unparalleled customer satisfaction and industry-leading operational consistency for more than seven decades.”

Brandon Hawkins, general manager of B&R, added, “It’s exciting to take the next step for the B&R organization. We’ve done a lot over the past three years and we are looking forward to having even more opportunities to grow with Caliber.”

Hawkins will be joining the Caliber Collision team as the director of Charlotte operations.

As the largest collision repair company in the U.S., Caliber is building a solid footprint in the Charlotte market. This is a win for both parties.”

Mark Sanders, Caliber president and COO, added, “Our acquisition of B&R Body Shop increases Caliber’s total number of locations to 339 as we continue to restore each and every customer to the rhythm of their lives.”
