Oklahoma City-based Collision Works is almost done converting all of the Wichita-area Auto Masters stores to its name.

“We are 100 percent Collision Works now,” says Sherri Penka, the company’s community relations director for Kansas.

Some of the signs are still in transition, though, so you may still see the Auto Masters name. It won’t be for long, though.

Former Auto Masters owner Larry Greider sold his three body shops and service center to Collision Works on Aug. 1.

“We left the Auto Masters name in place and have been slowly getting the word out to the public and to the insurance companies that we work with,” Penka says.

As of Feb. 1, the company began solely using the Collision Works name.

Penka says the former Auto Masters employees are still with Collision Works, so customers can see familiar faces.

She says Collision Works is adding new technology and services to its Wichita-area businesses.

The company, which started in 1996, has nine Oklahoma stores.

“It’s a rapidly growing company,” Penka says.

“We’re hoping to expand within the Wichita market.”
