Consolidators: Auto Glass Now Opens Two New Locations
The opening of North Richmond marks Kirmac’s fourth expansion into the Greater Vancouver Area this past year.
Kirmac Collision & Autoglass announced the opening of its second location in Richmond, B.C. The latest addition brings the total number of stores in British Columbia to 16.
The repair center is located in the northeastern part of Richmond and complements Kirmac’s existing facility in South Richmond.
“Over the past couple of years, we have been looking for opportunities to expand Kirmac’s presence in this market due to the increased demand for our services”, said Mark McIntosh, regional manager of Kirmac. “Taking over this repair center allows Kirmac the opportunity to introduce customers to our exceptional service, quality repairs and innovative approach to the vehicle repair process.”
The opening of North Richmond marks Kirmac’s fourth expansion into the Greater Vancouver Area this past year. This includes the acquisition of Gord Ron’s Auto Metal last October in Burnaby, Levett Auto Metal last June in North Vancouver and the opening of Ridge Meadows in April.
“We embarked on an ambitious expansion plan in British Columbia following the sale of our U.S. business last November,” said Ian McIntosh, founder and CEO of Kirmac. “We set a goal to double our size over the next five years, and we believe there is tremendous opportunity in the Lower Mainland and other regions of the province to expand our business.”
As a supporter of BC Children’s Hospital, the addition of new repair centers provides Kirmac the opportunity to increase its annual donation as part of the Kirmac Cares for Kids program. The company recently announced its goal of raising half a million dollars per year, following a five-year accumulated donation of over $1 million in May 2015.
Kirmac now operates 16 repair centers throughout the Metro Vancouver area.
