McGovern Auto Group Opens Largest U.S. Dealer-Owned Collision Center

McGovern has furnished the facility with next-generation equipment, materials and processes to truly optimize and modernize collision services.

McGovern Auto Group (MAG) recently announced the grand opening of the MAG Collision Center, McGovern’s new flagship body shop that promises to reshape collision repair services across Massachusetts and beyond. The state-of-the-art, 75,000-square-foot facility is located at 420 Boston Turnpike in Shrewsbury.

The center’s 40 repair bays can accommodate any passenger or commercial vehicle while specialized zones cater to the intricate requirements of body repairs, paint prep, paint mixing, detailing and refinishing, the company said in a press release. The facility also houses four downdraft-enabled paint booths and separate paint system for fleet and commercial vehicles.

The MAG Collision Center represents a multimillion-dollar investment in McGovern’s depth in auto repair in the Northeast. Beyond resources, McGovern has furnished the facility with next-generation equipment, materials and processes to truly optimize and modernize collision services.

McGovern Collision Center is certified or currently pending certification with all of their dealership brands including BMW, Audi, Porsche, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Ferrari.

“Today is an important milestone, not just for McGovern Auto, but also for every driver needing collision repairs or a fresh paint job,” said Matt McGovern, CEO of McGovern Auto Group. “With considerable investment in infrastructure, technology, equipment and – most importantly – top talent, the MAG Collision Center raises the bar in terms of capacity, speed, quality and customer service. It also expands services for fleet and heavy-duty vehicles, including our own transport fleet.”

For fleet customers, the MAG Collision Center offers a dedicated 60-foot truck paint booth and prep deck to cater to heavy truck, emergency vehicles, tractor trailers, dumptrucks or equipment repair needs. This capability underpins the shop’s readiness to serve commercial customers across a diverse range of industries while positioning itself as the foremost collision service provider for municipalities in Massachusetts.

The MAG Collision Center will also be home to McGovern’s transport and vehicle mobility division, McGovern Transport, housing its fleet of 14 trucks. With significant regional growth planned for McGovern’s vehicle transportation services, MAG Collision will play an integral role in keeping the division’s trucks meticulously maintained while recruiting top CDL driving talent.

The facility’s team brings decades of expertise across every collision discipline and has plans to expand further.

“We are actively looking to grow our talented 30-person team by nearly 50%, with 10 open roles for experienced auto body technicians, paint technicians, estimators and customer service representatives,” said Brian D’Alesio, general manager of the MAG Collision Center. “I encourage any qualified candidates looking to advance their careers with a growing, dynamic company to inquire about openings.”

The major launch follows a milestone year for McGovern Auto Group, having expanded to 29 dealerships across Massachusetts, New York and New Hampshire while amassing over $2.2 billion in annual revenues.
