CHICAGO, Nov. 19, 2013 /CNW/ - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd Group")
today announced the opening of a new repair center in Jacksonville,
North Carolina. This facility is located between two of our existing
locations in Havelock and Wilmington. Demographically, Jacksonville is
known as the youngest city in the United States with an average age of
23 resulting from a large military presence nearby.
This Jacksonville-Onslow Drive location is approximately 15,000 square
feet and was previously operated under the name of Auto Works. With
this addition, the Boyd Group now operates 24 repair centers in North
Carolina bringing the total number of U.S. locations in operation to
220, including those branded as Hansen Collision and Glass.
"The addition of the Jacksonville-Onslow Drive center is very well
situated and allows us to expand our reach to new customers while
better assisting our insurance clients," said Tim O'Day, President and
COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "The addition of another
center in North Carolina demonstrates our continued commitment in
adding single-locations as we continue to execute on our strategy to
grow 6-10% through single-location additions."
The Boyd Group is continuously looking to add new collision repair
locations to its existing network in Canada and the U.S. Interested
collision repair center owners are asked to contact Kim Allen at the
contact coordinates below for more information.
