Chicago, IL, June 28, 2021 – Crash Champions, LLC (“Crash Champions” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s largest independent collision repair companies, announced today it has entered the Colorado market through the acquisitions of Auto Collision Experts (“ACE”), with four locations in the Fort Collins MSA, and Karas Auto Body, a single shop located in Thornton, CO. These transactions provide Crash Champions with a meaningful presence in the Front Range corridor, with a population of over 5 million, and complements the Company’s significant footprint in the Midwestern market.
“With the integration of ACE and Karas into our platform, we not only gain entrance into an exciting new market with significant growth potential, we welcome a new set of expert technicians and skilled professionals to the Crash family,” said Matt Ebert, founder and CEO of Crash Champions. “The talent and reputational capital that these shops bring to the table put Crash in a strong position to grow throughout Colorado, and we look forward to bringing Centennial state residents the high-quality repair services and white glove customer experience for which we are known.”
“At ACE, we have always been committed to service excellence and high-quality repairs, and those are key elements of the blueprint for success that Matt and his team have developed,” said Keith Hess, co-owner of Auto Collision Experts. “We are known for investing in our people, having a passion for quality workmanship, and for going above and beyond to make the repair process as smooth and painless for our customers as possible. That is what made us stand out to Crash Champions, and that is what we will continue to do as part of Crash Champions. I am proud of everything that our employees have accomplished in order to put ourselves in this position, and I look forward to the new opportunities for growth and expansion on the horizon.”
