Careers at Gerber Collision & Glass


Wow every customer and be the best


With more than 300 service centres in Canada and 19 American states, Gerber Collision and Glass has become the leading service collision repair shop in North America. Currently under the ownership of Boyd Group Income Fund of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Gerber was originally founded in 1937 by Phil Gerber of Chicago. Gerber started an auto glass repair and trim shop in Chicago as a family business. The business survived the Great Depression and World War 2 to become a successful franchise in the post-war years.

The story of present-day Gerber Collision and Glass begins in 1998, when Neal Gerber, the grandson of Phil Gerber, made the decision to expand the family business. He joined forces with Eddie Cheskis, who was then President of CCC Information Services. The new partnership led to the expansion of Gerber Collision and Glass to 18 locations throughout the Chicago area. The company also opened its own call center to meet rising sales and service needs. Gerber was purchased by the Boyd Group in 2004 and Cheskis stayed on as CEO through the transition process. The following year, Geber acquired Globe Amerada Glass Network.

In 2010, parent company Boyd acquired True2Form Collision Repair Centers. In 2011, it acquired Cars Collision Centers, which had 28 different locations, thus allowing Gerber to further solidify its market position. In 2015, Gerber made an additional acquisition. It acquired Wayside Collision Centers of Dayton, allowing it to expand into the competitive Ohio market.

Since its acquisition by the Boyd Group, Gerber has also launched additional services including Gerber National Claim Services. The claim service is a national network of affiliated businesses that are given referrals through Gerber. Gerber continues to maintain its market position through the strength of its services. Among the incentives is a lifetime guarantee on all Gerber products and services.
