The addition of Pearson's increases the 1Collision footprint in the Minneapolis-St. Paul marketplace to seven locations. The addition of Body Best Collision in Suisun City is the second Northern California location opened by owner Dino DiGiulio, increasing the footprint in that market to five locations.
Bob Pearson, principle at Pearson's Auto Body, stated, "We look forward to our new relationship with 1Collision, which will allow us access to opportunities that we wouldn’t have had, creating a more forward-looking foundation, addressing future challenges.”
1Collision President Jim Keller commented, "Bob and his team at Pearson's are market-leading operators, and we are proud to add them to our family of successful collision centers."
DiGiulio commented, "I am excited to open my second location branded with 1Collision, and leverage the network resources as we grow our business in a new market."
Keller commented, "Dino is an exemplary shop owner and leader within our network, and we are excited to see him and his team grow their business."
