Sept. 29, 2015
CCG's 1stCERTIFIED Affiliates are OEM certification centric, ensuring that each facility possesses the equipment, training and skills necessary to meet or exceed industry repair standards.

The recently formed Certified Collision Group™ (CCG) announced the launch of its 1stCERTIFIED™ brand platform with seventeen independent collision repair centers. The initial independently owned and operated Affiliates are Blake's Auto Body, LC Automotive Group, and Pan American Collision. These MSOs represent three of the nation's highest performing and best locally branded collision repair businesses.

CCG's 1stCERTIFIED™ Affiliates are OEM certification centric, ensuring that each facility possesses the equipment, training and skills necessary to meet or exceed industry repair standards. Both founding and future CCG Affiliates are those who consistently deliver verifiable, market leading performance in repair quality, customer satisfaction, cycle time and loss of use management. 

CCG offers a cost-effective B2B opportunity that creates significant competitive benefits for collision repairers with both proven performance track records and a strong commitment to the continued ownership and operation of their businesses.

"CCG offers high-performing collision repairers a viable, non-intrusive means of growing their businesses in the face of a rapidly consolidating industry," states CCG Managing Director Thomas Adams. "CCG is committed to being a positive force in maintaining a more competitive marketplace, ensuring that consumers and insurers retain a sufficient number of high quality repair options. Given current industry dynamics and the value provided through 1stCERTIFIED™ branding, we anticipate rapid, but manageable, growth across the U.S."

CCG member and founding Affiliate Luis Alonso, CEO of Pan American Collision, adds, "The opportunity to compete on a higher level is appealing to us as we continue to grow. We are very excited that we will we be affiliated with only best-in-class operators who invest in the training and certifications necessary to consistently deliver market leading repair quality to both consumers and our valued insurance partners."

To be considered for 1stCERTIFIED participation, each applying repair organization must be keenly focused on consistently delivering top-level repair quality, customer satisfaction, cycle time, and loss of use management results to their customers and auto insurers.
