Service King Collision Repair Centers®, in continuation of its strategic national growth initiative, announced continued expansion in the Columbus, Ohio market through a formal agreement to partner with First Impressions Collision, Inc.
Officials from both Service King and First Impressions mutually agreed upon terms of the acquisition before formally closing on the deal Monday, Feb. 1 with the merger set to take effect immediately. First Impressions’ single collision repair center is located at 4000 Sullivant Ave. in Columbus, Ohio.
“This is a proud and long-awaited step forward for our team at First Impressions Collision,” said owner Phil Davidson “Partnering with a leading organization like Service King provides our team the resources and support to continue providing superior repair services to our customers and insurance partners throughout the Columbus community.”
With the partnership, Service King now expands its family of repair centers to three Columbus locations, all delivering on Service King’s reputation of superior comprehensive repair service complete with a written lifetime warranty valid at any of its now 287 locations across the U.S.
“Our team couldn’t be more proud to partner with a team like First Impressions Collision,” said Service King Market Vice President Darren DuVall. “Through this partnership, our team now provides three locations in the Columbus area to continue providing high-quality, consistent repairs with superior service. We look forward to a bright future together in Columbus.”
The First Impressions Collision facility, a proud member of the Ohio Auto Body Association, boasts the capacity to repair 150-200 vehicles per month.
Monday’s announcement marks Service King’s second acquisition of 2016, following its partnership with Detroit’s Autometric Collision and its roster of nine collision repair centers.
