The center previously operated as the collision repair department of Hastings Ford and served the community for 46 years. Greenville is located about 85 miles east of Raleigh, North Carolina and the center is located on a busy thoroughfare in close proximity to Interstate 264.
"This is our first location in the Greenville area and complements our centers located around Raleigh, Charlotte and Wilmington," said Tim O'Day, president and COO of Gerber Collision & Glass. "This additional presence in the state will allow us to better serve new customers and our insurance partners, and our co-location with a car dealership gives us a prime opportunity to introduce dealership customers to Gerber's high level of quality and service."
The 55 new auto body shops Gerber acquired in 2016 represent a 16.2 percent increase for the year, which added 29 in all of 2015.
