Bodycraft Collision Centers and Golden State Collision Centers recently merged operations to form a new 19-location entity in the greater Sacramento, CA, area that will be called Golden State Collision Centers, a Bodycraft Company.
The two companies, which had a management agreement in place in early 2012, formally merged their operations Dec. 2012. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Golden State’s Roseville location, which opened September 2001, contains 14,000 square feet of production space, 3,000 square feet of office space and one acre of fenced yard. The combined company now has shops in Antelope, Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Lincoln, Orangevale, Rocklin, Rancho Cordova, Roseville, Sacramento, Shingle Springs and Yuba City.
Golden State was founded in 1993 by Dave Finkelstein in a 2,400-square-foot facility in Sacramento. The company added its fifth facility in Yuba City in 2009.
Bruce Mackie, owner of Bodycraft, will serve as the president of the merged operation and Finkelstein has taken the title of chief marketing officer.
