CONSOLIDATOR REPORT: Gerber, Caliber Acquire Repair Centers in Arizona, Texas

The Boyd Group Inc. and Caliber Collision announced the acquisition of several repair facilities this week.

The Boyd Group has acquired Big Sky Autobody in Arizona and also announced the opening of a new start-up in Georgia, all of which will operate under the Gerber Collision & Glass name. With these five new facilities, Gerber now operates 11 centers in Arizona, seven in Georgia and 53 overall in the U.S.

Big Sky Autobody is a regional operator of four collision repair centers in Arizona with three centers located in Tucson and one in Avondale.

"The acquisition of Big Sky Autobody allows us to establish a strong market presence for the Gerber Collision & Glass brand in the Tucson market, while the Avondale location helps strengthen our existing presence in the western Phoenix suburban area," said Tim O’Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group’s U.S. Operations. "The acquired centers are modern facilities with skilled personnel and are a good fit with our existing network. We look forward to welcoming former Big Sky Autobody employees to Gerber Collision & Glass."

The new start-up is located in Rome, Ga., and is approximately 12,000 square feet in size.

"Our new start-up is well located to help serve consumers and insurance clients in the growing region of northwest Georgia. Rome is the county seat of Floyd County and the largest city located in the triangular area of Atlanta-Birmingham-Chattanooga," added O’Day.

Irvine, Calif.-based Caliber Collision Centers, an operator of collision repair facilities in California and Texas, has acquired Xpress Collision Centers in Houston, Texas.

With the addition of Xpress Collision, Caliber now operates 35 centers in Texas, 20 of which are located in South Texas. It also brings to 71 the number of Caliber service centers throughout California and Texas.

Former Xpress Collision owner/operator Ron Davis will be joining Caliber Collision as chief development officer.
