Certified Collision Group (CCG) enters 2020 after its most successful year in company history.
In 2019, CCG experienced our greatest yearly Affiliate growth, adding more than 150 independent affiliates to our network to make the end of year total 429. CCG was established in 2014 to provide independent collision repair owners a non-intrusive, scale-driven platform to create a lasting competitive advantage in the face of continued consolidation.
And today as a network, our revenue is closing in on $2B in collision repair dollars.
In a recent teleconference, COO, Marty Evans said, “We’re owned and operated by Collision Repair Owners. So, we see the market through the eyes of Collision Repairers. The independent collision repairer needs a method to stay relevant and thrive in this industry as consolidation is threatening every independent out there.
Our goal is to level the playing field for the top performing independents in this industry by aligning them in our network … we’re a low cost, non-intrusive option that brings scale and value that is otherwise unattainable to independent repairers.”
Also, in 2019, CCG more than doubled its own team to keep up with this growth and better serve its Affiliates. Included in that was bringing in CEO, Tom Matlack, who has a long and successful history of scaling growing companies.
“The explosion in our affiliate count just speaks to the absolute desire by the highest quality independent shops to stay independent and find a path forward where they can compete with consolidation … CCG is focused on investing in people and employing new technologies and platforms to serve our partners. We have the highest quality network out there based on the number of OE Certifications and the actual KPI performance of our affiliates,” Matlack continued. “CCG’s shops are not like our competitor’s shops, and our vendor and insurance partners know that. Our goal and track record show we have the highest performing group … so the insurer is happy, the vendor is happy, the customer is happy, and we’re happy to bring more volume to our Affiliates. CCG is growing rapidly, and I foresee that continuing into the future.”
