IRVING, Texas — Appearance protection solutions provider Dent Zone Companies has announced the formation of Nobilis Group, a new entity consisting of the Dent Zone, AutoBodyGuard and PDR LINX lines of business.

“With the same leadership team and owners in place, Nobilis is poised to continue our growth in the vehicle protection program marketplace,” said Troy Good, the group’s president and CEO. “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.”

Dent Zone provides private-label and direct programs for national automotive retailers, manufacturers, third-party administrators and lenders. Nobilis COO Stan Starnes said the company 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,” Starnes said. “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 said. “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.”
