Gerber Collision & Glass , a Chicago based chain of auto body shops has opened it's first location in Idaho with the recent take over of a local auto body shop in Coeur d' Alene.
In late 2014 Gerber took over Lake City Auto Body at 2414 N. 4th Ave in Midtown Coeur d' Alene. Here is the press release from Gerber about this new location-
"Chicago, Illinois - November 4, 2014 - The Boyd Group Inc. (the "Boyd Group") today announced the opening of a collision repair location in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The location has approximately 13,500 square feet of production space and previously operated under the name Lake City Auto Body.
"We continue our North American expansion with the opening of this new repair center and are very pleased to increase our footprint in the greater Spokane area. With this new center, we have the opportunity to introduce our high quality brand to a large base of new customers, while continuing to improve our platform for our insurance partners" said Tim O'Day, President and COO of the Boyd Group's U.S. operations. "Our first Idaho center has the benefit of being well-positioned, within about 30 miles east of our Spokane center, which will allow our Washington leadership team to manage the location."
"Coeur d'Alene, also known as Lake City, has a year-round tourism industry due to the mountains and lakes that surround it, which will allow us to introduce our brand to all who may require our services when they visit here," Mr. O'Day added. "We look forward to providing the Idaho market with the high quality experience we are known for at all our Gerber repair centers." "
