Service King Closes Acquisition of Auto Body World

Consolidator adds eight large scale, high-volume locations throughout metro Phoenix and Casa Grande, Ariz.

Service King Collision Repair Centers has closed its acquisition of Auto Body World Inc., which has eight large-scale, high-volume locations throughout metro Phoenix and Casa Grande. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

By joining Service King, Auto Body World becomes a part of the third largest collision repair company in North America with 51 Texas locations throughout the Dallas, Ft. Worth, Houston, San Antonio and Austin areas.

Service King’s expansion across Texas over the last three years has taken Service King from the sixth to the third largest collision repair company in North America, doubling revenue and location count.

"We welcome our new teammates in Arizona to the Service King family," said Service King CEO Chris Abraham. "We’re excited about the opportunity here. Arizona is special because it’s our first venture outside of Texas, but it’s not our last.

"Service King is committed to continuing Auto Body World’s long tradition of excellent customer service and quality repairs with good relationships in the insurance industry. We are honored to add Auto Body World’s talented teammates and skilled technicians to our base of over 1,400 Service King teammates throughout Texas, and bringing our same level of health, retirement and career benefits to all new teammates in Arizona."

Added Auto Body World President Mark Turner, "We are very excited about Auto Body World joining the Service King Team. Both companies believe that we’re a great match for each other in that we share very common cultures, and while Service King brings national insurance relationships and financial strength, Auto Body World brings dominance in a new market, with a strong operations team and platform for rapid growth."
