KALAMAZOO — The Boyd Group Inc., announced today the opening of a new Gerber Collision & Glass repair center in Kalamazoo, formerly operated by the adjacent Seelye Ford car dealership.
The Boyd Group, which is based in Winnipeg, Canada and operates over 300 non-franchised collision and glass repair shops, operates two other Gerber Collision facilities in the Kalamazoo area, according to a statement.
“Adding this location to our other two centers in Kalamazoo gives us coverage in the southern part of the city to better serve new customers and our insurance partners,” said Tim O'Day, president and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations in the statement. “Additionally, this repair center being co-located with a car dealership gives us a prime opportunity to introduce dealership customers to our high level of quality and service.”
The collision shop’s previous manager, Kevin Hopp, will continue to lead the facility, according to the statement.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
