Joe Hudson's Collision Center Acquires 7 Shops, Including First in Missouri

The Alabama-based MSO now operates more than 200 shops in 16 states.

Joe Hudson's Collision Center expanded its footprint with seven new acquisitions in Texas, Kentucky, Arkansas and its newest state, Missouri.

The most recent acquisition is that of Complete Collision, with two locations along Route 66 in St. James and St. Robert, MO. Owned and operated by Jim Smith, the Complete Collision teams have more than 120 years of combined collision repair experience.

“The vibrant communities of St. James and St. Robert present excellent opportunities for growth," said Brant Wilson, CEO of Joe Hudson’s Collision Center. "This marks our first venture into the Missouri market, and we couldn’t be more thrilled. With our careful selection of strategic locations adjacent to our current footprint, we are well-positioned to offer the operational support and oversight needed for their continued success.”

In Arkansas, Joe Hudson's has enhanced its presence by acquiring three CARSTAR Patriot shops, in Conway, Little Rock and North Little Rock. Chase Marchese, a former U.S. Army medic who served in Iraq from 2006 to 2011, has owned the locations for the last 10 years.

“We are excited and privileged to extend a warm welcome to the CARSTAR Patriot teammates as they become part of the JHCC family. We look forward to uniting our strengths and upholding their tradition of delivering excellence in both quality and service,” said Cameron Dickson, COO of Joe Hudson’s Collision Center. “Our commitment remains steadfast in providing unwavering support to the veterans of the Little Rock community, just as Chase has done before us.”

Texas and Kentucky also saw expansions with the acquisition of H&R Auto Body in Leander, TX, and Renfro's Collision in Richmond, KY. Darrell and Melissa Denton have provided top-tier collision repair services to the Leander/Cedar Park community for more than three decades. Renfro’s Collision, founded in central Kentucky by Shannon Renfro, is a 45,000-square-foot state-of-the-art repair facility known for providing quality repairs and exceptional customer service to the Richmond community since 1996.

“We’re strongly focused on retaining the valuable skills and expertise of the technicians and associates from these locations," said Wendy Patrick, chief administrative officer of JHCC. "JHCC is committed to ensuring a smooth integration of these professionals into our organization and maintaining the exceptional standards that define Joe Hudson’s Collision Center.”

Joe Hudson's Collision Center now operates more than 200 collision repair facilities in 16 states.
