RICHARDSON, Texas (May 8, 2017) — Service King Collision Repair Centers®, one of the fastest-growing automotive collision repair organizations nationwide, today announced continued growth across the state of California with the opening of the company’s first three Sacramento locations. The expansion comes as Service King finalized a deal to partner with Sacramento-based Gamboa’s Body and Frame. 

With the move, Service King expands its Northern California footprint to 12 high-quality collision repair centers serving customers across the San Francisco, San Jose and Sacramento metro areas.  As part of the deal, Gamboa’s Body and Frame locations serving downtown Sacramento, Rancho Cordova, Calif., and Roseville, Calif., will begin operating as Service King immediately.

“This is another step in our mission to provide Northern California motorists and our business partners with best-in-class collision repair service,” said Wesley McAlester, Service King Market Vice President. “We aim to partner and grow with businesses that align in our core values and vision for delivering a premier repair experience to customers. We look forward to welcoming our new teammates to the Service King family and are excited for a bright future as one team.” 

Service King now provides customers and all major insurance providers with premium collision repair service at 323 high-quality collision repair centers spanning 24 states. All Service King locations offer premier repair service backed by a written lifetime warranty available at any location nationwide. The company has grown significantly across California in 2017, completing four partnerships totaling seven locations across the state since February. 

“We were approached by numerous companies for the purchase of our company,” said Rick Caron, President of Gamboa’s Body and Frame. “We looked at the best fit for our customers and employees.  We interviewed many people who worked for our competitors to find the best fit. The Service King culture aligned best with our mantra of operations regarding customer satisfaction and employee relations.”
