Wilson Group expands CARSTAR’s presence in Wisconsin and Michigan.
CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced it has expanded its Midwest presence with the addition of a three-store MSO: CARSTAR Wilson Green Bay West and CARSTAR Wilson Niagara in Wisconsin, along with CARSTAR Wilson Norway in Michigan. The shops are owned and operated by Kevin and Ruth Wilson.
CARSTAR Wilson Niagara is the first shop that Kevin Wilson built in 2002. CARSTAR Wilson Norway is Wilson’s second location, and just happens to be the shop where he worked as a tech for nine years before becoming an owner.
“We are extremely excited to become part of CARSTAR,” said Wilson. “As an MSO, it is often difficult to maintain consistency across all locations. We are confident that the benefits offered by CARSTAR are the keys to continued growth, improvement and success in this industry. We are looking forward to bringing our company to the next level as part of the CARSTAR family.”
Each of the three CARSTAR Wilson locations incorporates some of the latest technology in collision repair. They all feature heated downdraft paint booths, along with unibody and frame equipment. Wilson also utilizes the CCC ONE Total Repair Platform for computerized estimating, workflow, repair processes and an improved customer experience.
“We are excited to welcome Kevin and Ruth Wilson to the CARSTAR family,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR. “A growing MSO is the perfect partner to benefit from the programs and resources that CARSTAR offers. We look forward to working with the Wilsons to provide the highest-quality collision repair in the Midwest and seeing them grow into a larger MSO in the future.”
