Classic Collision Inc., an Atlanta-based automotive collision repair company, has acquired Palm Collision Center in the South Florida region. This acquisition solidifies Classic Collision’s presence in South Florida after the purchase of Carolina Auto Body in December 2019, now giving Classic eight South Florida locations.
Palm Collision Center has served the Broward Florida area since October 1983. “After 17 years as an independent body shop serving South Florida, it’s exciting to join an expanding company, Classic Collision, which shares the same values of great customer service, quality repairs and genuinely valuing every team member,” said Shane O’Connor, former managing partner of Palm Collision.
“We are elated to join forces with Kevin Kelley and Shane O’Connor to transition Palm Collision over to the Classic Collision brand,” added Toan Nguyen, Classic Collision’s CEO. “Their business values and strong insurance relationships are aligned with the Classic model.”
The addition of the Palm Collision Center to the Classic family will increase the footprint to 35 shops in Florida, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina and will add 14 new employees to the Classic team.
Classic Collision says it is continuing to execute its plan to expand nationally, even with the challenges that the collision industry is facing during the coronavirus pandemic. “Despite the challenging market conditions, we are not slowing down our growth – we are accelerating it and plan on continuing to grow our business through acquisition. Our best-in-class integration model and highly efficient operating playbook enable us to perform at a high level during a crisis.
Continuing to acquire high-quality businesses makes sense for our teammates, stakeholders, landlords, the communities we serve, our insurance partners, and the long-term health of the economy,” said Nguyen.
