South Shore Chamber of Commerce joins ribbon-cutting festivities at the grand opening of The Collision Center of Rockland

The South Shore Chamber of Commerce (, the region’s largest chamber, participated in the April 28th ribbon-cutting ceremony of The Collision Center of Rockland at 61 Accord Park Drive.


The grand opening and open house celebrated the opening of the 6th Collision Center in the Greater Boston area.  The Collision Center of Rockland, one of many centers throughout the country owned by DCR Systems Accident repair Centers, was completed in early 2016 and is located within the totally renovated building that formerly housed Kent’s Carpetland. 


The accident repair center will house a production and management team of 15, and feature a highly proven continuous flow production floor model perfected by DCR Systems and currently utilized in all of their operations.


The grand opening was attended by a large gathering of guests and employees of DCR Systems, including company President and Founder Michael Giarrizzo Jr. and other corporate team members who flew in from Georgia and the company’s Ohio headquarters to join in the festivities.


“We welcome The Collision Center of Rockland to the region and are excited over the number of local people the business will employ,” said Peter Forman, President and CEO of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, adding that the addition of the establishment to the Rockland area parallels the Chamber’s Regional Economic Development Plan, one that is committed to the expansion of the area’s economic base and the promotion of new business.
