Joseph Carubba, president and CEO of Carubba Collision Corp., announced that Carubba Collision has acquired Collision Pro of North Buffalo, N.Y. Carubba Collision will now operate at the acquired location in North Buffalo.
The new shop is the former location of Collision Pro of WNY, which has been in operation in North Buffalo for the past 16 years. Former proprietor Joe Chimento, who has been in the body shop business for 30 years, will be retained by Carubba Collision.
“Our acquisition of Collision Pro is a very exciting opportunity for our company,” said Carubba. “Collision Pro has a great reputation and we intend to continue that high level of quality auto body service under the Carubba Collision brand.”
The Carubba Collision’s new Rosalia Street location will retain the four employees who previously worked for Collision Pro. The new facility will eventually include an Enterprise Rent-A-Car operation onsite. Also included onsite will be multiple insurance companies to handle all customer claims.
“I’m looking forward to this new opportunity and becoming part of a winning team at Carubba Collision,” said Chimento.
Over the past year, Carubba Collision has increased its footprint in Western New York by adding four new operations and locations, including operations in Jamestown and Syracuse. They now have eight locations with ten production facilities.
