Chamber Celebrates Grand Opening with Service King Collision Repair

New Lenox, IL (July 16, 2015) — The New Lenox Chamber of Commerce was thrilled to help celebrate the grand opening of Service King Collision Repair on Thursday, July 9. Located at 114 Oak Street in New Lenox, Service King was formerly Central Collision of New Lenox. 

Jim Reed, New Lenox General Manager and Chamber Board Member, was joined by Service King Executives and staff as he cut the blue ribbon. Others in attendance included Mayor Tim Baldermann, Chamber CEO and Village Trustee Emily Johnson, members of the Chamber’s Board of Directors, Ambassador Team and representatives from the general membership. Lisa Kline, Chamber President presented Reed with a certificate commemorating the event. Mayor Baldermann also congratulated the Service King team on their grand opening and thanked them for their contributions to the New Lenox community.

Service King Collision Repair Centers is an industry-leading multi-state operator of high-quality collision repair services and officially partnered with Chicago’s Central Collision Centers in February 2015. With the partnership, Service King commenced operations of its six area collision repair centers, including the location in New Lenox. The acquisition officially closed on February 27, 2015 as part of Service King’s strategic growth plan in the greater Chicagoland area.

“Service King has enjoyed tremendous success in our first 13 months in the Chicago market, taking our operation from seven to 14 locations during that time,” said Jerod Guerin, Service King Vice President of Northeast Operations. “We have been very welcomed by the local communities we serve, and groups like the New Lenox Chamber of Commerce are such an asset to a customer focused team like ours.”

The company first moved to the Chicago area in June 2014 when it acquired Sterling Auto Body. Service King, which has plans for future growth, provides all customers a written lifetime warranty on all repair work valid at any location. Service King is one of the fastest-growing providers of high-quality collision repair services in the country with 241 locations in 21 states. It was founded in 1976 in Dallas, Texas.
