Why Green?

  • Nagy's Collision Centers at Doug Chevrolet, located on the Green Auto Mile

As seen in the Monday May 18th Akron Beacon Journal, Green Chamber of Commerce Special Edition:

In answer to the question: “Why Green?”, another question begs to be answered - why not Green?  Green is a vibrant and progressive community with a strong foundation. It has so many positive opportunities and promising venues for everyone to enjoy.

As a Summit County resident driving through Green, my dream was to have an auto body repair shop right there on the Green Auto Mile. Nagy’s Collision Centers has done business with several of the automotive dealerships on the Green Auto Mile through their parts and service departments. So when Kip Bigelow approached my brother, Dan Nagy, and me about partnering with Doug Chevrolet and taking over their Collision Center, it was an easy decision.  Green has everything a business owner is looking for: strong community spirit, great leadership, great business owners (from retail establishments to restaurants), and the best of all - great and loyal customers. 

Nagy’s Collision Centers is a second generation business founded by Dave Nagy in 1973 and purchased by myself, Ron, and Dan in 1996. Since then we have grown to 10 locations. We work with a lot of communities, and Green is definitely one of the best.  Our tag line for Nagy’s is “Family Tradition, Quality Repairs, since 1973”. We have seen this to be so true with many other businesses in Green: a strong past built on family values and tradition.

One of the most exciting parts of having a business in Green is the promising future; it seems there is no limit on this thriving area. We love being part of this community and are very excited for what the future holds. It is a privilege to be part of Green.
