The acquisition, the terms of which were not released, closed Dec. 13.
Service King has more than 100 locations in Texas, Tennessee, Arizona, Arkansas and Mississippi. The company acquired Body Works’ three collision repair centers in the greater Oklahoma City area. Body Works has served the Oklahoma City community for 16 years.
“We are pleased to welcome the Body Works team into the Service King family,” said Stephen Hayes, director of operations for Service King. “Body Works has a great reputation in Oklahoma City, and we plan to build on that legacy with our similar values and focus on providing excellent service and quality repairs.”
Body Works was founded in 1997 by Larry Pennington and acquired by the current owner, Chris Donnelly, in 2009. Donnelly has been in the collision repair industry for more than 24 years.
“We are excited about the opportunity to expand into Oklahoma City, the entry point of our planned growth into the central United States,” said Jeff McFadden, president of Service King. “It has been a pleasure working with Chris Donnelly and his team; their help in making this transition a success is much appreciated.”
The three acquired repair facilities span approximately 90,000 square feet combined and are capable of serving more than 1,000 cars per month.
“I am proud of the growth and success of our team in Oklahoma City,” said Donnelly. “I am confident and look forward to seeing Service King take the organization to even higher levels.”
Service King, one of the largest national operators of collision repair facilities, was founded more than 37 years ago in Dallas.
