Service King Collision Repair announced Monday it is expanding its national presence by acquiring Riverdale Body Shop and its eight facilities in the Chicago area.
"This is a fantastic partnership for Service King and our Chicago customers," Jerod Guerin, Service King regional vice president, said. "Riverdale Body Shop has built an excellent business with eight fantastic auto repair facilities providing the very best in collision repair service. We are thrilled to welcome its teammates and customers to the Service King family and look forward to providing auto repair services at the standard our customers and insurance partners have come to expect."
An area of rapid growth for Service King in 2015, the Riverdale acquisition marks its third expansion in the Chicago market since March. Service King now officially operates 251 locations in 22 states across the U.S., all providing auto repair services, free estimates, on-site rental assistance and a written lifetime warranty.
"Riverdale Body Shop has been proud to serve the Chicago area for 45 years," Larry Seida, Riverdale Body Shop's former owner said. "We are a great company with great employees. I'm looking forward to the future as we merge in with another great company, Service King."
