Service King Expands in Salt Lake City, Acquires Central Collision Centers

Acquisition gives MSO five shops in Utah, 213 nationwide across 21 states.

SLIDER_SK_Logo_Spot_OvalService King Collision Repair Centers announced it has acquired Central Collision Centers, a premier provider of collision repair services in the Salt Lake City metro area.

Central Collision Centers operates four locations servicing customers in Salt Lake City, Draper, Tooele and Park City with the capacity of repairing 1,000 vehicles per month. With the acquisition, Service King now operates five locations in Utah, adding to its existing location in Midvale.

“We look forward to expanding our footprint in Salt Lake City while providing the service and quality that our customers expect,” said Chris Anderson, Service King Western U.S. vice president. “Central Collision’s excellent reputation and leadership will help us serve our insurance partners across the Salt Lake City metro area.”

Founded in 2001 in Draper by Shannon Valdez, Central Collision quickly built a reputation throughout the greater Salt Lake City area for high-quality collision repair services. The company, now under the leadership of Shannon and her husband, Tracy, currently operates four locations with a team of 63 employees.

“This acquisition makes complete sense for the Central Collision team moving forward,” said Shannon Valdez. “It allows opportunity and growth for all involved that would have taken much more time as a small independent multi-shop operator.”

With the Central Collision Services acquisition, Service King now offers collision repair services with a lifetime warranty to customers at 213 locations across 21 states.
