The first addition to the Carubba Collision family was the acquisition of Vern’s Auto Body located in the Capital District of New York State in Amsterdam at 107 W. Main Street.
“Vernon O’Brien has proudly served the Amsterdam area for the past 25 years,” said Joe Carubba. “Once I got to know Vern, it became quite evident to me that the two companies share the same vision of delivering the best quality, speed of service and most competitive cost to our customers. Taking care of our customers is paramount for Vern and me.”
The new Carubba Collision shop will also be retaining all the employees of the former Vern’s Auto Body, including Vern’s wife, Sherry O’Brien.
The new Utica, NY, shop is located at 5140 Commercial Dr. The 30,000-square-foot building was the former Westinghouse plant and will serve as a flagship store for the Carubba Collision brand.
“The Utica area is fast-growing by leaps and bounds, and this location geographically fills in the region between our East Syracuse store and our new Amsterdam operation,” stated Carubba.
The second Carubba Collision Syracuse operation is located at 601 Erie Blvd. W in the resurging downtown area just a few short blocks from the popular Destiny Mall. This second Syracuse location will complement the existing Carubba Collision stores in Syracuse and Auburn, NY.
Carubba Collision is the largest regional MSO in New York State. These three new acquisitions will now make 17 stores that share the Carubba Collision brand. Carubba has been adding stores in New York for the past several years and plans to continue an aggressive growth strategy.
