Service King Collision Repair Centers, in the continuation of its long-term strategic growth initiative, announced significant expansion in the Detroit market through a partnership with longtime industry veteran repair group Autometric Collision and its nine area locations.
Service King and Autometric jointly agreed upon and officially finalized terms of the acquisition Jan. 9th with operations transferring immediately. Following the merger, Service King and its teammates now provide Detroit motorists and business partners with 11 collision repair centers across the market, all offering Service King’s comprehensive service and lifetime guarantee.
“Through four decades of serving our Detroit customers and business partners this is perhaps the most exciting step in Autometric’s proud history,” said Larry Smith, who founded Autometric Collision in 1975. “Joining the Service King team allows us to provide the industry’s premier service to our customers while also bolstering resources for our very own teammates.”
Service King now extends its family of repair centers to 285 locations in 23 states across the U.S.
“This is a long-awaited and extremely exciting addition to our team,” said Jerod Guerin, Service King vice president for the Northeast Region and the Detroit market. “Partnering with Autometric Collision and its team is yet another step forward in Service King’s mission to provide our customers and business partners the very best in collision repair services. Through the process we quickly learned Autometric boasts a rich tradition and aligns with our core values of taking care of our customers and our team. We look forward to that formula providing for a very exciting future together.”
