CHICAGO, IL, Oct. 17, 2016 /CNW/ - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd Group" or "Boyd") today announced the October 17, 2016 opening of a new collision repair center in Greenville, North Carolina. The center previously operated as the collision repair department of Hastings Ford and served the community for 46 years.
