May 4, 2022

Chicago, IL, May 3, 2022 – Crash Champions, LLC (“Crash Champions” or the “Company”), one of the nation’s fastest growing independent collision repair companies, announced today that it has acquired California’s Costelli & Pardini Auto Body (“Costelli & Pardini”), a Bay Area repair shop located at 2002 Palm Ave in San Mateo, and Idaho’s Ruben’s Body Shop (“Ruben’s”), a repair shop located at 911 3rd St S in Nampa.

The acquisition of Costelli & Pardini gives Crash Champions 34 locations across California, and follows the Company’s earlier Northern California acquisitions of Anderson-Behel Body Shop, American Autobody Specialist, All American Paint and Body, Diablo Auto Body, and two collision repair centers previously owned and operated by collision industry veteran Danny Greenwald and his family. The acquisition of Reuben’s gives Crash Champions six locations across Idaho, and follows the Company’s earlier acquisitions of First Choice Collision Repair and Coachman Auto Body.

“These are both top-notch organizations with high quality facilities and talented professionals that care about the customer,” said Matt Ebert, founder and CEO of Crash Champions. “It is my pleasure to welcome our new employees to the Crash Champions family, where they will join a like-minded team of the industry’s best and brightest.”

“Costelli & Pardini is one of the oldest autobody repair shops in the peninsula, with two generations of family serving the Bay Area for over 20 years, and becoming part of the Crash Champions platform is a terrific opportunity for our employees and customers,” said Frank Bozzini, owner of Costelli & Pardini Auto Body. “We pride ourselves on delivering an exceptional repair experience, and the Crash Champions team share our passion for excellence and dedication to quality.”

“Ruben’s has been voted a best in Canyon County winner for the past 6 years, and it’s because we treat the customer with compassion and care, and we provide our employees with the tools and training that they need to get the job done right,” said Jeremy Hefner, owner of Ruben's Body Shop. “Crash Champions is using the same blueprint for success, and it’s wonderful to be able to join their platform as they grow their presence in Idaho and beyond.”
