CHICAGO, March 31, 2016 /CNW/ - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd Group") today announced that it has acquired a multi-store operation ("MSO") in Indiana consisting of six collision repair centers located in the Indianapolis region. The centers previously operated as Collision Cure Body Werks, with the first location established in 2003 in Anderson, Indiana.
"Over the past few years we have added several locations in northwest Indiana, focusing on serving customers in the Chicago region," said Tim O'Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "With this acquisition we have established a footprint in the Indianapolis region, vibrant communities with a population of nearly two million."
The new centers are located north of Indianapolis and include Anderson, Fishers, Kokomo, Marion, Muncie, and Westfield, Indiana. They are in close proximity to Gerber's two locations in Lafayette, Indiana, acquired in January.
