🠈 Caliber Collision 🠊
Caliber Collion is a nationwide chain with nearly 1000 auto body repair shops. In 2018, the company was acquired by Hellman and Friedman. HF merged the two companies and it appears that Caliber will be the lead brand.
As Abra was the first auto body shop purchased by HF, I will start the merger chain with Abra.
