The planned move is aimed at supporting the company’s general focus on growth; Grimshaw said, “As we continue our strategic growth plans over the next five years, the move will allow us to consolidate the back end operations more efficiently with future large acquisitions.”
Grimshaw said that almost all employees currently working at the Irvine, CA headquarters were offered their same positions in the new Texas location, and any associates that are not moving are still working with Caliber to ensure a smooth transition.
The MSO, operator of several collision repair facilities in California and Texas, also announced on October 5 it has signed an agreement to acquire 911 Collision Centers; confirming suspicions of the merger within the industry.
Recognized as one of the premier collision repair companies in the southwest, 911 Collision Centers has seven locations including four locations in Tucson, Arizona, one location in Scottsdale, Arizona and two locations in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Steve Grimshaw, Caliber Collision Centers’ Chief Executive Officer announced, “Our acquisition of 911 Collision Centers sets a new cornerstone in Caliber’s continued expansion plans. After spending time with 911’s management team, it quickly became apparent that 911 Collision Centers provides Caliber with the perfect opportunity to enter the Arizona and Nevada markets behind a well-established, high quality brand.”
“Partnering with Caliber Collision Centers will allow us to grow exponentially over the foreseeable future while sharing corporate best practices and operational efficiencies across the Arizona, Nevada, Texas and California markets” said Michael Quinn, Chief Executive Officer of 911 Collision Centers.
This is Caliber Collision Centers first expansion into locations outside California and Texas and increases the company’s total number of locations from 84 to 91.
Caliber Collision Centers is now one of the largest collision repair companies in America with 91 I-CAR Gold Class Professional certified collision repair centers throughout California, Nevada, Arizona and Texas.
