CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR the Professionals Auto Body Works, located at 4720 Stratos Way, Modesto, CA 95356.
Owner of CARSTAR the Professionals Auto Body Works, Richard Aleixo, initially entered the industry in a part-time capacity, cleaning his father’s body shop while he was in college. Eventually working his way through the business as a technician, painter, estimator and other roles, Richard still finds himself in this industry 20 years later.
“Being a family business, it meant everything to me to keep the name of our store, which is one of the biggest reasons why I went with CARSTAR because I did not feel like I was selling out,” says Richard Aleixo, owner, CARSTAR the Professionals Auto Body Works. “Once I joined, I understood how CARSTAR earned its premier reputation, as they have effective standard operating procedures and helped me with things I did not even know I missed.”
CARSTAR the Professionals Auto Body Works, an I-CAR Gold certified repair center, has always focused on providing best in class services. This 10,500 square foot facility is equipped with industry leading equipment to perform premier repairs on all makes and models.
“We know how important the name is for most of our store owners, as a lot of our network is filled with family owned businesses,” says Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “The reason why we have grown at an unprecedented rate is because we are not a consolidator buying businesses outright; we welcome them into a larger family.”
Currently working with Recycled Rides, CARSTAR the Professionals Auto Body Works is helping provide a vehicle to a local deserving family. Richard and his team care deeply about supporting his community and are looking forward to raising valuable funds and awareness for cystic fibrosis, the CARSTAR charity of choice.
Please join us in welcoming the Richard Aleixo and his team to the CARSTAR family!
