Fix Auto USA Continues Growth in Pacific Northwest with Acquisition of Carriage Case Collision

Acquisition brings Fix Auto's presence in Seattle market to six locations, while doubling its presence in Pacific Northwest from six to 12 stores in last year.

Fix Auto USA recently announced the addition of Carriage Case Collision Center, now operating as Fix Auto Northshore, to its network of collision repair centers. The addition brings Fix Auto’s presence in the Seattle market to six locations, while doubling its presence in the Pacific Northwest from six to 12 stores in the last year.
“For an independent repairer – even a top performer – it’s becoming increasingly difficult to provide the same value to insurers as larger organizations that offer efficient solutions across multiple locations,” said Jeff Schoonover, owner of Fix Auto Northshore. “Through Fix Auto, I’m able to offer compelling services and solutions to my insurance company customers. And I’m now part of regional and national level discussions and benefit from an internal team whose purpose is to ensure my shop is performing to the highest standard. I simply would not have been able to achieve this market position on my own.”

Added Fix Auto President and COO Paul Gange, "Fix Auto Northshore is a great addition for Fix Auto USA. Not only are we adding another quality business to our Northwest region, but we’re also continuing our growth with best-in-class operators like Jeff who are committed to delivering a high quality product and working within our system to create value for our carrier customers, all while delighting the vehicle owner.”

Fix Auto USA, which added a franchise model to network membership in January 2011, currently has 48 franchise locations operating in four states: California, Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
