CHICAGO — The Boyd Group announced the opening of a Gerber Collision & Glass repair center in Jacksonville, North Carolina, according to a press release.

The opening follows the recent acquisition of the center, which previously operated as Moore Collision Center, on Sept. 10, stated the release.

“We are very happy to announce our expanded presence in North Carolina,” said Tim O’Day, president and COO of the Boyd Group’s U.S. operations, in the release. “This will help us serve new customers and provides us additional capacity to better serve our insurance partners. We anticipate additional growth in our portfolio and are on track to meet our targeted growth rate of [six] to 10 percent through single-store additions.”

The center is located on a major thoroughfare in the city, reported the release, and is co-located with the Moore Buick GMC dealership.

“Jacksonville has been recognized as one of the fastest growing small cities in the United States and is also home to the U.S. Marine Corps’ Camp Lejeune,” stated O’Day in the release. “We look forward to growing with the community and providing the Gerber brand of professional and friendly service that we are known for.”
