Lift Auto Group (“Lift”) continues its rapid expansion in the Canadian collision repair industry following its most recent acquisition of Abougoush Collision, a collective of five premier collision repair shops located throughout the BC Interior. Previously owned by Methal Abougoush, Abougoush Collision was a very successful and long-standing licensee that conducted business as Boyd’s Autobody and Glass.
With a prominent 20-year history in the Okanagan, Abougoush Collision conducting business as Boyd’s Autobody & Glass has created very strong ties in the community and is supported by a loyal customer base.
“It has been an honor to serve this great community over the years and I am thankful for the support they have given me.” Methal says.
Owned and operated in Kelowna, BC, Lift is a leader in the Canadian collision repair industry. “For decades, Abougoush Collision has been a hallmark of collision repair in the Okanagan, a result of the hard work and dedication of its former owner, Methal Abougoush, and his team” says Lift Auto Group President & CEO, Mark Reineking. “The addition of these locations furthers our goal of being the leading collision repair provider in Canada and aligns with Lift’s vision of being at the forefront of the industry through understanding its customers, investing in its people, and embracing technology to deliver a best-in-class experience.”
The newly acquired shops will continue to operate with the same great team assembled by Methal Abougoush, as well as the same unwavering commitment to providing repair solutions for the evolving needs of our customers and their vehicles. While some change is inevitable, Lift aims to ensure that any change is positive. Becoming a member of the Lift family means having access to additional resources and support from a network of professionals who are industry leaders and experts in their field. Part of those resources comes from the partnership that Lift has with the CSN Collision Centres network. Abougoush Collision has been a staple in the community, with a mission to grow through quality workmanship and customer satisfaction. Methal is confident that Lift has the resources to continue that growth. “I am happy to have found a company like Lift Auto Group that I can transfer my team too and that is aligned with my business principles and practices.”
