The Collision Center on 14 Mile, just south of Cedar Springs, is now under the management of Ed Koehn Chrevrolet dealership.

Ed Koehn is a name well known and respected in West Michigan. Owners Ed and Aaron Koehn are excited with the opening of the Ed Koehn Collision Center. The Collision Center shares the same property with the Ed Koehn Chevrolet dealership that was new last year.

“We feel very fortunate to have acquired Jack Price, a lifelong resident of the area, to operate our Collision Center,” said Ed Koehn. The Collision Center was previously part of the John Decker Chevrolet dealership.

“We are now the collision facility for all four of the Ed Koehn Automotive Group dealerships, which includes Chevrolet, Ford and Chrysler,” Price said, “as well as serving those in West Michigan, regardless of make or model.”

This is the first venture into the automotive collision repair business for Koehn’s, according to Price. Experience in car repair is what Koehn’s new Collision Center prides itself on. Price brings 35 years of expertise in customer relations, insurance company relationships and business management that are focused on customer satisfaction and quality of work for customers. Heather Odren brings 11 years of experience in the collision and glass industry and carries the “Mark of Excellence Award” from General Motors. Lenny Wentz has 22 years of experience as a collision specialist, from minor scratch and dent repairs to full structural repair. Rick Palm, a fellow collision specialist, has 35 years of experience from minor scratch and dent repairs to full structural repairs including full frame vehicles using our state of the art computerized measuring system. Eric Montgomery, the Collision Center’s third specialist, has 20 years of experience with the past 16 years spent working at Ed’s Auto Body on Indian Lakes Road, serving the North Kent and Montcalm county area up until Ed Fitzpatrick retired earlier last year.

Ed Koehn’s Collision Center is at 4650 14 Mile NE (M-57) in Rockford and can be reached at (616) 866-9511 or email bodyshop@edkoehn.com or jackprice@edkoehn.com.
