Service King Collision Repair Centers was founded in Dallas, Texas in 1976 when Eddie Lennox purchased an existing body shop in a small tin shack complete with a hand painted sign that read, "Service King." Eddie's good reputation, hard work and key insurance relationships helped him to grow his customer base quickly and over the next 36 years, Service King has become the largest employee-owned paint and body operation in the country.
In 2012, The Carlyle Group purchased a majority stake in Service King to provide the capitol needed for national growth. The expansion is well underway with plans to become the premier collision repair operator in the United States.
Today, Service King employs over 1500 hundred employees and is expanding its reach nationally in areas all around the United States. We offer a lifetime warranty on all collision repairs since 1976, and have made the repair process convenient with on-site rental cars and working directly with insurance companies.
The mission of Service King, as a corporation, is to provide a secure, fulfilling work place that motivates our teammates to deliver high quality repairs and excellent customer service. While meeting and/or exceeding our customers' and insurance partners' expectations is our main objective, it is also essential that our teammates focus on Service King's goal of remaining a profitable company. It is profitability that will ensure consistent growth, expansion, and company success, which, in turn, will provide greater opportunities for our teammates' growth, promotion and benefits.
