Caliber Collision Slated for Mankato, MN

A fast-growing large chain of collision repair centers is planning to open a store on the east edge of Mankato, MN.

Caliber Collision, founded in 1997, has grown to 1,400 centers in 40 states and is planning a store in Mankato.


The shop is planned for Mankato’s east edge, behind the new Volkswagen dealerships and next to Dairy Queen. It will be fronted by Haefner Drive. The company said it plans to begin construction in April and be open in November.


Caliber Collision previously received approval for the building but recently filed a request to the city to alter some of the materials to be used in the building.


The changes are due to problems getting the materials originally planned for structure.


The original building construction type was masonry and is now proposed to change to a steel structure. The new proposed exterior building finish materials include stone, brick veneer and architectural metal panels.


Caliber has locations in the Twin Cities.


Based in Lewisville, Texas, the company also operates Caliber Auto Care and Caliber Auto Glass.


A couple of years ago it grew to a more than $4 billion a year behemoth.
