Crash had grown organically and through the acquisition of several shops with strong operations and management. Having built a 13-location business in Chicago. Crash was well positioned to accelerate its disciplined acquisition strategy and explore geographic expansion opportunities into new markets outside of Chicago.
G2 served as the exclusive buy-side advisor to Crash Champions, leading a tailored buy-side effort focused on engaging with companies that have a strong reputation for auto collision repair and customer service across targeted geographies.
