New York’s H&V Collision Opens Third Shop

Troy, New York-based H&V Collision has opened its third shop, its first in the suburban Albany area.

The Business Review reports that the shop – located in Colonie, New York, in a former auto parts store – has 10 bays, a spraybooth and a large waiting area.

H&V Vice President Vartan Jerian, Jr. estimated that H&V’s sales would be around $10 million this year.

H&V has been expanding its footprint since 2007. The Business Review says it expanded its Troy headquarters in 2007 and opened another shop in Queensbury, New York, in 2008. Jerian said H&V also plans to open two additional shops within the next couple years.

H&V, a DRP for several insurers, has around 60 employees and started as a two-man shop in the 1970s.
