Service King is opening its first San Diego repair centers through a partnership with Carter’s Collision Service, Inc., and its five repair facilities. With the acquisition, Service King now operates 20 collision repair centers in Southern California.

“I cannot think of a better fit and future for my teammates,” said Greg Carter, owner of Carter Collision Services. “What Service King brings to the table is a bright future and opportunities for all of the staff. I am excited to assist Service King with their growth in the San Diego market.”

Service King, which first expanded from its north Texas headquarters to Southern California in 2014, has now grown to 258 locations in 23 states across the country.

“Carter’s Collision Service has built a great reputation as one of the premier collision repair organizations in San Diego,” said Chris Anderson, Service King regional vice president. “This partnership represents a terrific opportunity for Service King’s entry into the San Diego market. We are really looking forward to providing our customers and insurance partners with the level of service they have come to expect as we continue to expand into new markets.”

Carter’s Collision Service, Inc., opened as a single location in San Diego County in 1992. The organization has since grown from its original location to a network of five collision repair centers across the area.
