"After Rock Gate’s acquisition, we quickly saw their loyalty and commitment to the success of the company and its employees. They maintained and improved upon our family and team oriented culture and their leadership style has enabled us to realize tremendous company and employee growth. They’ve become friends, partners and members of the Collision Services family."

"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Rock Gate for almost eight years.  I have been a part of other acquisitions and this may sound cliché, but it was the easiest transition ever.  Ken and Steve deeply care about the team and share our pride and passion for the business.  Collectively we enhanced communication and teamwork, invested significantly in capacity expansion and continually find ways to improve processes.  The company’s sales growth and profitability has been exceptional.  The proof is in the results."
