LKQ Announces LKQ Refinish Division

LKQ has merged the LKQ PBE and FinishMaster businesses under one umbrella now called LKQ Refinish.

LKQ Corporation announced the merging of the LKQ PBE and FinishMaster businesses under one umbrella – LKQ Refinish – which the company says translates to “an expanded network of industry-relevant experience” servicing over 40,000 customers within North America.  

Over the years, the LKQ Refinish Division has expanded through acquisitions of Keystone Automotive Paint; Body and Equipment; AkzoNobel’s U.S. company-owned store division, Max Auto; Cross Canada; and, most recently, FinishMaster. This division has continuously grown and evolved over the decades, while preserving the company’s core values, LKQ said.

“Operating as LKQ Refinish underscores our ongoing commitment to continued focus and growth in the sales and service of current and future customers in the automotive collision, fleet and general industrial businesses,” said Ed Pietrzak, vice president, product marketing and vendor relations.
