Winnipeg, Manitoba -- November 3, 2015 -- The Boyd Group has announced a string of openings in the US in the last week, including one that can justifiably be called a milestone. The facility, which previously operated as Custom Touch Collision Care, is the first location in Oregon and the 300th Boyd facility in the US.
“This provides us a foothold in a new region that we expect to build on as opportunities arise and will allow us to introduce our high quality brand to a large base of new customers and provide an expanded platform for our insurance partners,” says Tim O’Day, President and COO of Boyd Group’s US operations. “We are proud of the progress we have made in building this nationwide network of collision repair centres that serves thousands of customers daily."
The Boyd Group has also recently opened two collision centres in the state of Washington. The first, located in Bremerton, Washington, previously operated as Clifford's Auto Body and is located on a busy thoroughfare near the Bremerton Ferry Terminal, used daily by commuters to nearby Seattle. It has operated at its present location for 55 years.
"The Bremerton location complements our existing locations in the Seattle area and will allow us to serve new customers and our insurance partners in this western suburb," says O'Day. "Adding this location is also a further example of the execution of our stated growth strategy, which is to achieve six to 10 percent growth in number of centres through single-location additions."
The other new location is in Lakewood, Washington, and is located in a central business district in Lakewood and in close proximity to the Interstate 5 Highway. Lakewood is about 17 miles southwest of Tacoma, Washington.
