To expand its network in Canada and the U.S., reported the release, the Boyd Group is continuously looking to add new collision repair locations.

In terms of number of locations and sales, continued the release, the Boyd Group is one of the largest operators of nonfranchised collision repair centers in North America, directly and through subsidiaries.
