Service King Acquires Grand Sport Auto Body in Philadelphia, PA

Service King Collision Repair Centers announced on January 5 it has acquired Grand Sport Auto Body, a multi-location collision repair operator in Philadelphia.

Grand Sport Auto Body operates eight facilities, which will greatly increase Servive King's prominence in the northeast. Service King now offers its services and written lifetime warranty to 12 locations in the Philadelphia market. 

“We are extremely proud to welcome Grand Sport’s teammates into the Service King family,” said Jerod Guerin, Service King Regional Vice President of Northeast Operations. “Founder and current owner, Fred Gunther has built a great business centered around his very talented team and we plan to use this foundation as a platform for our continued expansion throughout the Northeast.”

Gunther founded Grand Sport Auto Body in 1982 before spreading to the Chester and Montgomery counties in Philadelphia. Today, Grand Sport Auto Body serves customers in West Chester, Malvern, Chester Springs, Downingtown, Parkesburg, Collegeville and Exton.

“In our 32 years of business we have strived to take care of and develop three core relationships; one with our customers, one with our industry partners, and most importantly, our teammates,” said Gunther. “As our teammates are the lifeblood of any successful business, it was paramount that this value was consistent. I feel confident in Service King’s core values, their ethical presence in the industry and their commitment to their teammates and customers, which made this a perfect fit.”

Service King’s acquisition of Grand Sport Auto Body officially closed on Jan. 2. For more information and to view a full list of Service King locations and services, visit
