"We are very excited about Auto Body World joining the Service King Team," said Mark Turner, president of Auto Body World. "Both companies believe that we’re a great match for each other in that we share very common cultures. While Service King brings national insurance relationships and financial strength, Auto Body World brings dominance in a new market, with a strong operations team and platform for rapid growth."
Global alternative asset manager The Carlyle Group recently purchased majority ownership of Service King to help the company initiate a national expansion effort. Auto Body World is Service King’s first acquisition outside of Texas.
"We welcome our new teammates in Arizona to the Service King family. We're excited about the opportunity here. Arizona is special because it's our first venture outside of Texas, but it's not our last,” Abraham said.
