CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned and operated collision repair facilities is proud to announce the opening of CARSTAR Fredericton North, located at 18 Royal Parkway, Fredericton New Brunswick, Canada, E3G 0H6.
CARSTAR Fredericton North is the second CARSTAR location for owner Roy Kennedy, who also owns CARSTAR Fredericton. With Roy interested in modernizing collision repairs, store manager Steve Knox was able to take this new facility to the next level with its trailblazing equipment.
“It has been incredible to work for someone who’s willing to invest this much into his business to enhance performance and ensure we are ahead of the coming industry advancements,” says Steve Knox, owner, CARSTAR Riverview. “This is the first Symach facility east of Quebec which allows us to run twice as fast and creates ergonomic working conditions for our valued employees.”
With capabilities far beyond a typical repair centre, CARSTAR Fredericton North is a 10,000 square foot facility that is already I-CAR Gold and aluminum certified. Thanks to the state-of-the-art systems installed, a three-day repair can now be complete in one day. Faster fast drying time for paint, less down time in between steps and no need for technicians to maneuver under cars or pull frames are the new value adds this facility can provide its customers.
“Roy is a visionary by installing these systems and bringing this proven technology to Atlantic Canada,” says Dave Meery, eastern zone director, CARSTAR. “Steve is deeply involved in the industry as part of the CCIF steering committee and an I-CAR instructor, so he understands what the future of the industry will look like and how to properly equip his team to thrive in the advancing environment.”
CARSTAR Fredericton North hosted an exciting grand opening event to welcome the community to their new facility at the end of July. With a BBQ, balloon animals, prizes, live music and a car show available for all, the team was able to launch their store in style, while also raising some valuable funds for Cystic Fibrosis Canada.
Please join us in congratulating the CARSTAR Fredericton North team on a remarkable facility!
