Northside Collision is celebrating its 38th year in business in Central New York.
Northside opened their original location on North State Street in Syracuse in 1974 and has experienced a methodical growth plan over the past 38 years.
Northside is owned by President Scott Jones and CEO Gary Bell; they currently have five Central New York locations and over 125 employees.
The most recent store opening is in Liverpool on the corner of John Glenn Boulevard and Route 57; they are celebrating their one year anniversary and a very successful one at this new location.
Other locations are in Cicero, Dewitt, Camillus and Baldwinsville.
Northside has direct repair relationships with several insurance companies; these relationships allow a streamlined approach to the repair process and customers are pleased with the process since the insurance company and Northside Collision are working together to provide a guaranteed repair and a favorable experience rather than an adversarial one, says Bell.
Northside locations are I-Car Gold Class Certified, which means the company’s technicians have undergone extensive training and certifications in all phases of collision repair.
Each facility uses the latest technology available for diagnostics and collision repair; we converted to water based, green, environmentally friendly paints from BASF in 2011, Bell said.
Jones, who has been with the company for 25 years, said Northside has become the premier collision repair facility in upstate New York. “If you take care of customers they keep coming back,” he said.
We are now repairing vehicles for three generations in some families. Many customers that had their vehicles repaired in the 1970s when the company was started are still returning, as well as their children and grandchildren, for vehicle repairs.
Northside Collision offers loaner vehicles, and rentals on site.
