Headquartered in St. Louis, Schaefer Autobody Centers provides an expanded national footprint for QCG as it continues its merger-acquisition strategy
Chadds Ford, Pa.—Quality Collision Group, a private-equity-backed venture of multi-site OEM-certified collision repair centers, has announced the continued growth of its organization with the acquisition of Schaefer Autobody Centers.
Headquartered in St. Louis, Schaefer Autobody Centers, since 1985, provides an expanded national footprint for QCG as it continues its merger-acquisition strategy.
The transition and integration of all 14 Schaefer Autobody Centers into the QCG family will begin immediately. QCG CEO Jerod Guerin recognized Schaefer Autobody Centers leadership position in the market and knew it was a perfect match for his growth strategy. “We are honored to welcome the Schaefer Autobody team to our family, and excited to continue our mission of building the most prestigious collision repair company,” said Guerin.
Schaefer Autobody Centers owner Scott Schaefer said, “The Schaefer way of doing things isn’t going away; it’s only getting better. Joining Quality Collision Group allows us to expand and deliver the best results for our customers and clients.”
Schaefer is moving into a larger role within QCG, but the name on the door will remain Schaefer Autobody. With Schaefer’s shift to join QCG’s executive team, Schaefer Autobody Centers’ current head of Human Resources, Jaime Matthews, will assume the new role of vice president of Schaefer Autobody Centers.
