Service King Collision Repair Centers announced it has acquired Grand Sport Auto Body, a multi-location collision repair operator in Philadelphia.
The acquisition significantly increases Service King’s footprint in the region as Grand Sport Auto Body operates eight facilities. Service King now offers its services to 12 locations in the Philadelphia market.
“We are extremely proud to welcome Grand Sport’s teammates into the Service King family,” said Jerod Guerin, Service King regional vice president of northeast operations. “Founder and current owner Fred Gunther has built a great business centered around his very talented team, and we plan to use this foundation as a platform for our continued expansion throughout the Northeast.”
Gunther founded Grand Sport Auto Body in 1982 before guiding its growth across Chester and Montgomery counties in Philadelphia. Today, Grand Sport Auto Body serves customers in West Chester, Malvern, Chester Springs, Downingtown, Parkesburg, Collegeville and Exton.
“In our 32 years of business, we have strived to take care of and develop three core relationships: one with our customers, one with our industry partners, and most importantly, our teammates,” said Gunther. “As our teammates are the lifeblood of any successful business, it was paramount that this value was consistent. I feel confident in Service King’s core values, their ethical presence in the industry and their commitment to their teammates and customers, which made this a perfect fit.”
Service King now operates more than 220 locations across 21 states.
