Texas firm acquires Northern California auto-body chain

A Texas-based firm says it has an agreement to acquire the Car West Auto Body chain, which operates six shops throughout Northern California.

Officials of Service King Collision Repair Centers said they expect the acquisition to be finalized in early October. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Fremont-based Car West operates auto-body shops in Yuba City, Dublin, San Jose, Santa Clara, Fremont and Mountain View. With the additional shops, Service King will have 18 sites throughout California.

Founded nearly 40 years ago in Dallas, Service King now has 191 shops in 20 states.
