Certified Collision Group™ (CCG), which announced its 1stCERTIFIED™ initiative last week, now announces nine (9) additional facilities - to total 26 - as CCG expands from California into Idaho, Washington and Oregon. 

One of the new Affiliates joining CCG is Parks Royal Body Works of Boise, Idaho. Almost 40 years ago, Ted Thornton and a partner took the opportunity to purchase their facility. His son, Matt Thornton grew up in the family business and eventually became its owner in 1999. Their family, employees, and community have depended for almost 7 decades on Parks Royal and its commitment to craftsmanship, exceptional service and professionalism. Parks Royal's OE Certifications, CSI scores and cycle time make them a great fit for CCG.

"Having the 1stCERTIFIED™ brand complement our current values and partners is crucial to us in today's marketplace," commented Matt. "The ability to participate in a larger network - while maintaining our individual identity - is the kind of support we've been looking for. My family and our staff are excited to grow into the future with the Certified Collision Group." 

Thomas Adams, CCG's Managing Director notes, "Parks Royal is a prime example of how CCG will grow its 1stCERTIFIED™ initiative; adding unique value for well branded, owner operated, performance-driven organizations. Our ability to quickly expand into multiple markets is based on the value of our non-intrusive, high performance solutions to both qualifying collision repair businesses and the auto insurance community."

To be considered for 1stCERTIFIED™ participation, each applying repair organization must be keenly focused on consistently delivering top-level repair quality, customer satisfaction, cycle time, and loss of use management results to their customers and auto insurers.
