CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts and Airgas, Inc. announced a National Preferred Supplier Agreement for the supply of welding and cutting gases, equipment and supplies and personal protection equipment (PPE) to CARSTAR facilities around the country.
CARSTAR is the nation’s leading franchisor of auto body repair experts with more than 380 locations in North America. Airgas, with headquarters in Radnor, Pa., is the largest U.S. distributor of industrial, medical and specialty gases and hardgoods, such as welding and safety equipment and supplies.
“CARSTAR takes great pride in the quality services we offer our customers,” said Bill Garoutte, CARSTAR senior marketing executive. “To provide the best service, we chose to work with suppliers that share our concern for customers. Airgas provides the industry’s most complete line of quality gases, welding and safety products. They have a strong national presence and are known for their personal, local service.”
“The CARSTAR and Airgas agreement represents a good opportunity for both companies,” said Graham Pratt, vice president for the Airgas retail market segment. “CARSTAR gets the savings and convenience of using one source for core products their auto body repair facilities use every day. And Airgas gets to demonstrate our supply chain expertise and the local service we’re known for, nationwide.”
