CHICAGO, IL, Feb. 20, 2013 /CNW/ - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd
Group") today announced the opening of a new repair center in
Washington and one in Florida. The Boyd Group now operates 181
locations in the U.S.
The first center, located in Stanwood, Washington, is approximately
4,500 square feet in size and previously operated as Twin City
Collision. It now operates under the Gerber Collision & Glass trade
name. With this addition, the Boyd Group owns and operates 14 repair
centers in Washington.
The second center in St. Cloud, Florida is approximately 26,000 square
feet in size. It was part of the 11 centers acquired with The Recovery

year prior to the acquisition. It has now reopened and operates under

"As we have done over the past few years, we continue our focus of
expanding our business in attractive U.S. markets. The new location in

to better serve customers and insurance partners located between our
current locations in Burlington and Marysville." said Tim O'Day,
President and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "We also welcome
the reopening of the St. Cloud location, which will serve Orlando and
