Ohio-Based DCR Systems Partners with Toyota


Ohio-based DCR Systems announced it has entered into an alliance with Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc. to offer DCR’s patent-pending, lean-based operating model exclusively to Toyota dealerships that choose to outsource management of their collision repair operations rather than operate the traditional model. Under this agreement, DCR Systems will operate only Toyota-certified collision centers in the United States for the next five years. DCR currently manages collision center operations for three U.S. Toyota dealerships.

DCR and Toyota’s alliance is a first for the collision repair industry. For Toyota, the alliance is an extension of company efforts to enhance its Toyota Certified Collision Center Program. For DCR Systems, the alliance enables the company to focus its expansion efforts on the more than 750 Toyota dealers in the United States without body shops, providing both DCR and Toyota with the opportunity to quickly expand their networks.

“This relationship with DCR is a great opportunity to further expand our dealership collision network and provide an efficient, customer-focused collision repair experience for our vehicle owners,” says Roger Foss, national field support manager for Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc.


“Certainly Toyota understands what we do very well,” said DCR Systems
President and CEO Michael Giarrizzo, Jr. “Their great resources and
thought process are a natural fit and create an incredible opportunity
in so many ways.”

DCR Systems’ strategic alliance with Toyota Motor Sales USA, Inc. comes on the heels of an earlier 2008 agreement with AkzoNobel, which provides a variety of support to assist DCR Systems in building its infrastructure and furthering the reach of its operating model.
