Crash Champions Completes Two Acquisitions in Washington

Crash Champions has acquired Ed's Premier Auto Body and River City Body & Paint, both in Spokane.

Crash Champions, LLC announced that it has expanded its footprint in Washington State through the acquisition of Ed’s Premier Auto Body and River City Body & Paint, both in Spokane. The addition of Ed’s and River City are the latest Spokane-area transactions that the company has completed, following the recent acquisitions of Custom Body Collision Repair and Coachman Auto Body.

“These acquisitions are the next step in our ongoing efforts to grow the Crash Champions brand in the Pacific Northwest states,” said Matt Ebert, founder and CEO of Crash Champions. “Spokane is a vibrant market and a great base from which to build our presence in the region, with Ed’s and River City both serving as prime examples of the types of high-caliber operations that we are excited to partner with. I welcome them to the Crash Champions family and look forward to working together to take these shops to the next level.”

Added River City Body & Paint Owner Juanita Schultz, “This is an exciting day for everyone at River City Body & Paint. Importantly, Crash Champions takes the same approach to collision repair that has helped us succeed over the last 40 years — combining the most advanced techniques and tools with friendly customer service. I know our customers will continue to be in good hands.”

“At Ed’s, our philosophy has always been ‘Quality From Start to Finish’, and with Crash Champions, we have found a partner that shares our commitment to operational excellence and customer satisfaction,” said Jason Keen, owner of Ed’s Premier Auto Body. “Crash brings the resources and scale of a national platform but continues to operate with a community mindset, ensuring our customers will receive the highest quality repairs in a warm and welcoming environment.”
