CSN Collision Centres (CSN) and 1Collision Network have announced the merger of their business operations. The companies say the agreement will allow them to offer a unified collision repair experience and claims management solution to the driving public and insurance industry throughout Canada and the United States.
“Part of what makes the merger so unique is how many commonalities there already are between the networks,” said Ryan Bruno, CSN president & CEO, in a joint press release. “Both CSN and 1Collision share a similar philosophy and approach to doing business which revolves around trust, loyalty and a commitment to excellence,” Bruno said.
Both organizations were formed in the early 2000’s and expanded on the foundation of family values and a team-focused approach to network development.
After the merge, the CSN and 1Collision footprint spans 240 locations across North America, with combined network revenue of over $750 million CAD.
“We are committed to adding value for our independent locations in order for them to continue to be market leaders. We believe we’ll be able to combine our strengths in terms of corporate-level support through insurance relationships, operations, marketing, vendor relations, and business planning, and extend that service [to] deliver more value on both sides of the border,” said Jim Keller, president of 1Collision.
