CSN Collision Centers and 1Collision Announce Merger

The agreement will allow the organizations to offer a unified collision repair experience and claims management solution throughout Canada and the U.S.

CSN Collision Centers (CSN) and 1Collision Network have announced the merger of their business operations. The agreement will allow the organizations to offer a unified collision repair experience and claims management solution to the driving public and insurance industry throughout Canada and the U.S.

CSN and 1Collision state that the union of their companies is a natural fit. Both organizations were formed in the early 2000s and expanded on the foundation of family values and a team-focused approach to network development. With coast-to-coast coverage in their respective markets, each network has solid representation with room for further growth.

“Part of what makes the merger so unique is how many commonalities there already are between the networks,” said Ryan Bruno, president and CEO of CSN. “Both CSN and 1Collision share a similar philosophy and approach to doing business, which revolves around trust, loyalty and a commitment to excellence.”

Added 1Collision President Jim Keller, “We are committed to adding value for our independent locations in order for them to continue to be market leaders. We believe we’ll be able to combine our strengths in terms of corporate-level support through insurance relationships, operations, marketing, vendor relations and business planning and extend that service and deliver more value on both sides of the border.”

The CSN and 1Collision footprint now spans 240 locations across North America, with combined network revenue of over $550 million. Day-to-day operations in the U.S. and Canada will continue to be led by Jim Keller and Flavio Battilana, COO of CSN, with Ryan Bruno overseeing both networks.
