Chamber Honors RCI Collision As April Business of the Month

WARNER ROBINS, GA- The Business of the Month Committee of the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce presented RCI Collision with the April Business of the Month Award, sponsored by Ambassador Personnel.

Located at 810 Corder Road, RCI Collision was founded by owner D. Sean Rollins in November 2003.

“RCI Collision is one of the fastest growing small businesses in Warner Robins over the past several years,” said Andrea Griner, BOM chair, as she read the nomination.  “They perform excellent work and offer great customer service.”

RCI Collision has recently purchased and cleaned up the corner of Nelson Drive and Corder Road to add additional customer parking and to benefit the aesthetics of the facility.
