(Irving, Texas–January 31, 2017) Dent Zone Companies, a leader in Paintless Dent Repair (PDR) for more than a quarter century, has announced the formation of Nobilis Group, a new entity consisting of its Dent Zone, AutoBodyGuard and PDR LINX lines of business.

Since 1991, Dent Zone has set the industry standard in paintless dent repair in launching the first PDR service contract and pioneering catastrophic repair services for the automotive industry.

“With the same leadership team and owners in place, Nobilis is poised to continue our growth in the vehicle protection program marketplace,” stated Nobilis Group President and CEO Troy Good. “This move acknowledges our expansion beyond our traditional focus solely on PDR, yet builds on that legacy and our rich heritage of powerful partnerships with many of the nation’s automotive leaders,” he continued.

Dent Zone, which provides private label and direct programs for national automotive retailers, manufacturers, third party administrators and lenders, will continue to offer full administrative services for PDR and associated vehicle protection programs. “The Dent Zone our partners have come to depend on for best-in-class product administration isn’t going away,” according to Stan Starnes, Nobilis Chief Operating Officer. “As part of Nobilis Group, Dent Zone will continue to deliver the same level of excellence for our PDR programs on behalf of our industry partners, ensuring that their end customers continue to receive extraordinary value and quality of service that is virtually unmatched in our industry.”

AutoBodyGuard, which acquired a national chemical manufacturer in 2015, will continue to distribute its suite of appearance protection products to the automotive, recreational and powersports markets from its Irving, Texas, manufacturing facility.

PDR LINX provides catastrophic services including hail repair, fire and flood mitigation, and overspray removal services for national insurers, large retailers and company managed fleets.

“We’re driven to excellence in every market we serve,” Good further explained. “We’ve innovated in a number of ways through our product and service offerings, and under the Nobilis name, our vision, and our commitment to being an industry leader, will only continue.”
