Collision Works is a true entrepreneurial success story. From its beginning in 1996, operating out of his home’s 2 car garage, owner Jacob Nossaman began a side business, doing what he knew the best: fixing cars. At first, it was the friend who had an occasional “fender-bender” and knew that he was the only one they trusted with their car, to the regular “fixer-upper”, that he would sell after repairing. Collision Works may have never been more than a dream, if it hadn’t been for unforeseen circumstances that required a swift overnight move. After relocating his home business, the first “shop” opened in an unseen location at 594 N. Miller in Oklahoma City in late 1996.
With a growing repeat customer base and the powerful word of mouth of those who knew Collision Works, Jacob began to envision opening a more customer friendly location. A location where people would be welcomed with a comfortable atmosphere, friendly customer service, and the “first-class” repair quality that the word of mouth reputation had made people come to expect.
The dream was realized in May of 2002 when a small 8,000 square-foot located at SE 29th and Bryant in Del City facility was opened to the public. Collision Works’ immediate growth was overwhelming. It was quickly learned that Collision Works had finally brought a much-needed service to the Oklahoma City area—QUALITY REPAIR, in a TIMELY MANNER, for a FAIR PRICE. Thus became the motto of Collision Works that all employees still operate by.
After 3 renovations and the addition of a state of the art refinishing center, Collision Works has continued to grow and establish itself as a fixture in the Oklahoma City collision repair business, where Service and Quality have become synonymous with the name Collision Works.
In 2006, a second store opened in Shawnee to provide customers with the same quality service and experience that Collision Works is known for. The new store offers a friendly atmosphere and the best technology available. Collision Works of Shawnee has quickly developed a reputation for providing quality service to the Shawnee community and surrounding areas.
In November 2013, Collision Works opened a 3rd store located in Norman, Oklahoma, conveniently located in East Norman, near Robinson and Flood Avenue. Two more stores were added to the mix in 2014 when Collision Works acquired Darrin’s in Newcastle and opened up a new shop facility in Edmond.
In 2015, Collision Works acquired Duvak’s Collision Center in Ardmore, Oklahoma, bringing the total amount of stores in the Collision Works family to six. We have the latest technology for collision repair, with the same high quality service and friendly atmosphere that you would expect from Collision Works. In 2016 Collision Works entered the Tulsa metro market with its Broken Arrow body shop, which opened late Spring and purchased Bodyworks of Tulsa in December of the same year. Additionally, the company purchased AutoMasters, a multi-shop collision repair company located in the Wichita Metro Market, in August of 2016. Since then, Collision Works also expanded their share of the OKC Metro Market with its purchase of Dyer’s Collision & Frame Repair in Oklahoma City, its newly built location in Yukon, and the new state-of-the-art Symach shop in Tulsa Hills. The company plans to open three more Symach shops (one in Kansas, and two more in Oklahoma) by the summer of 2018.
With all this growth, it is no surprise that in 2016 Collision Works was named as one of the fastest growing companies in the United States by Inc. 5000 Magazine. This growth would not be possible without the leadership and vision of Nossaman – It’s no wonder Jake has been honored several times as one of the ‘Most Admired CEOs’, earning a place in the Chain of Distinction. His leadership and vision, coupled with the companies family atmosphere and commitment to customer service and quality, continues to push Collision Works forward in their growth -the sky is the limit.
