CHICAGO, Nov. 26, 2014 /CNW/ - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd Group") today announced the opening of a collision repair center, located thirty miles north of Atlanta, in Woodstock, Georgia.

"As we continue to increase our geographic footprint we are able to better serve both our customers and insurance partners in Georgia, as well as nationally."
"We are very excited to enter the Woodstock market," Mr. O'Day added. "It is one of the fastest growing areas in Georgia, doubling in size in the last ten years, and we are proud to introduce our Gerber brand of high quality service to this community."
