Mike’s Auto Body added its 17th location when it recently acquired Gil’s Body Works in Pleasanton, CA. With a goal to expand its market and strengthen its presence along the Hwy. 680 corridor, Mike’s Auto Body has long been attracted to the idea of doing business in Pleasanton, a growing area with approximately 80,000 people.
Gil’s Body Works was opened in Dublin, CA in 1988 and moved to Pleasanton in 2001. The facility is approximately 10,000 square feet in size and located in close proximity to the city’s downtown area.
The acquisition is strategic and a great match for Mike’s CEO at Mike’s Auto Body Brennan Rose said. “We were very fortunate that the people at Gil’s gave us the opportunity to sit down and discuss our company culture and keeping their family business, a family business,” he said. “It’s an ideal situation for us, because their operational standards, facility structure and employee base fit our model perfectly.”
Manager Tony Castagnetto has agreed to oversee the operations at the new location to ensure that everything keeps rolling along during the transition period. “We are confident that our new team will hit the ground running while we add our DRP partners and implement our company culture. Jeff Gil like us has a lot of long-term quality employees that we look forward to making part of Mike’s Auto Body Family.
“We would like to thank all of our people for their hard work and dedication,” Rose said. “Our amazing team has enabled us to grow and expand in our current and new markets over the years. As owners, we understand it takes a strong, focused management team and great employees to make our business successful.”
Fixing cars to their pre-accident condition since 1972, Mike Rose and his family have built Mike’s Auto Body into a 17-shop organization known for its honesty and integrity with an emphasis on exemplary customer service. With two locations in Concord and Walnut Creek and one in Lafayette, Pittsburg, Antioch, Brentwood, Richmond, Fairfield Napa San Ramon and now in Pleasanton, Mike’s Auto Body is well-known for being an outstanding business partner in every city where it serves the public.
