Service King Collision Repair Centers, a Texas-based operator of collision repair facilities in the Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston and San Antonio markets, acquired B&B Body and Paint, a provider of collision repair services in Austin, San Marcos and Leander, Texas. B&B operates five high-volume collision centers.

Service King says addition of B&B Body and Paint positions the company as the largest independently and employee-owned collision repair organization in the United States. With 47 Texas locations throughout Austin, San Antonio, Dallas, Fort Worth and Houston, Service King can now serve 70 percent of the $1.5 billion total collision market in Texas.

"The acquisition of B&B Body and Paint allows us to start serving the people of South Austin, North Austin, San Marcos, Round Rock and Leander, Texas," said Service King Austin Market Vice President Jeremy Lennox. "We’re thrilled about the addition of B&B’s talented employees and skilled technicians to our base of over 1,400 Service King teammates throughout Texas."

"We are very excited about B&B Body and Paint joining the Service King Team," said Craig Van Cleve, B&B Body and Paint’s owner. "For the past 32 years, our success has been driven by our unrelenting focus on complete satisfaction and respect for our customers and employees. Service King will continue on with these same core values."

Cathy Bonner, president of Service King, added, “In DFW and Houston, Service King is known as one of the ‘best places to work’ by the Dallas Business Journal, and we plan to bring our same level of health, retirement and career benefits to all new teammates in Austin. The reason Service King is the largest employee-owned collision repair center in the United States is because the people in this company care about their customers and the trauma they go through after a collision."
