Established in 1955, Mid-Island Collision in Rockville Centre on Long Island, NY, received a makeover in 2014 when owner Robert Jesberger expanded his state-of-the-art facility to include the building across the street, making his shop one of the largest independent shops in the country at 85,000 square feet. Renovations are still in progress to turn the second floor of the new building into an on-site training center for technicians and insurance personnel.
Now that the shop’s construction has been completed and the facility is fully operational, Jesberger has directed his attention to the second floor of his newly-acquired building. Previously used as a call center, the 50,000 square foot upstairs portion of the facility is already set up with office space, so Jesberger is currently working out the details of his involvement with Axalta Coating Systems to offer on-site training monthly. He also plans to hold some manufacturers’ training in the facility.
