H&V Collision Centers will open a fourth location in Saratoga County at the former Allstar Chevrolet in Saratoga, NY. H&V purchased the property in February and a formal grand opening will be held this spring. The new Saratoga location joins H&V locations in Troy, Queensbury and Colonie, and provides H&V with a base of operations in Rensselaer, Warren, Albany and Saratoga counties.

“We are very excited to be readying a fourth H&V location and equally excited to be moving into Saratoga County in 2012,” said H&V’s Vartan Jerian Jr.

“H&V has been fortunate to have many customers and friends from Saratoga County. This new, fourth location will move us closer to our customers in Saratoga and expand a coverage area that will allow us to bring in new customers,” added Jerian.

The new location for H&V will include 11 acres and 30,000 square feet and over one dozen bays. When completed, the facility will be the largest for H&V Collision Centers, and have a capability of processing 75 vehicles at a time.

An existing collision repair shop at the facility now includes 15 employees. Those employees will be retained. An additional ten jobs will be created. After starting as a two-man operation in the early 1970s, H&V now includes over 100 employees and collision repair technicians throughout the Capital Region.

H&V has seen steady and continued growth in recent years that has established H&V as the largest independent collision repair company in the Capital Region. H&V started as a two-man shop in a small garage on Oakwood Avenue in Troy in the early 1970s.

In 2006, H&V completed a major expansion at the Oakwood Avenue facility that added 6,00 square feet to the facility and some of the most modern equipment available. In 2008, H&V opened a North Country location on Quaker Road in Queensbury. H&V undertook its largest expansion, opening a major facility on Central Avenue in Colonie.

As part of that commitment, H&V became the first collision facility in the region to partner with VeriFacts Automotive, to provide independent, third party verification and review of work and repairs at H&V locations.
