Gerber Collision & Glass Opens First Repair Location in Idaho

The Boyd Group Inc. announced on Nov. 4 the opening of a collision repair location in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The location has approximately 13,500 square feet of production space and previously operated under the name Lake City Auto Body.

"We continue our North American expansion with the opening of this new repair center and are very pleased to increase our footprint in the greater Spokane area. With this new center, we have the opportunity to introduce our high-quality brand to a large base of new customers, while continuing to improve our platform for our insurance partners" said Tim O'Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "Our first Idaho center has the benefit of being well-positioned, within about 30 miles east of our Spokane center, which will allow our Washington leadership team to manage the location."

"Coeur d'Alene, also known as Lake City, has a year-round tourism industry due to the mountains and lakes that surround it, which will allow us to introduce our brand to all who may require our services when they visit here," said O'Day. "We look forward to providing the Idaho market with the high-quality experience we are known for at all our Gerber repair centers."

The Boyd Group is continuously looking to add new collision repair locations to its existing network in Canada and the U.S. Interested collision repair center owners are asked to contact Kim Allen, Business Development Manager, at (847) 410-6003 or kim.allen@gerbercollision.com for more information.
