Service King Collision Repair Centers announced that it has finalized the acquisition of Sterling Collision Centers. Service King now operates 175 locations across 20 states.
Service King states that the acquisition "supports our growth strategy and further strengthens our position as the premier provider of high-quality collision repair backed with exceptional customer service."
"Acquiring a company like Sterling Collision Centers is about more than expanding our network with bricks and mortar," said Chris Abraham, CEO of Service King. "The strength of our organization lies within our people, and we are extremely excited to welcome the very talented Sterling team to the Service King family. Service King has offered consumers a superior collision repair experience for more than 38 years, and we are well positioned to grow that legacy with what I believe is the most capable and experienced team in the industry."
Sterling’s 62 locations will begin operating as Service King immediately, and the rebranding of Sterling stores across the country began on June 3, 2014.
Added Jeff McFadden, president of Service King, "Service King has built a strong reputation in the communities where we do business. We recognize that collision repair is not just about the car, but it’s about the care and the lives we touch every day. This acquisition allows us to expand our footprint and offer more consumers an unparalleled, personal repair experience."
