CARSTAR Relocates Corporate Headquarters

New headquarters, located in Leawood, Kan., opened Nov. 25.

CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts announced that it relocated its headquarters on Nov. 25, 2013.

Located at 4200 West 115th St., Suite 300 in Leawood, Kan., the new CARSTAR headquarters provides, according to CARSTAR, a “bright, modern, high-tech facility” to house the corporate offices.

The new office space features open work spaces to encourage collaboration and teamwork. It also includes expanded meeting spaces for training and management programs. For the insurance team and vendor partners, the facility provides an opportunity to host new product training and education events for team members and store owners.

“This move was a smart business decision, as it allows our team to serve our stores and partners more efficiently and effectively,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR. “This allows us to focus corporate resources on building and enhancing our business as we kick off 2014, and provides us the flexibility and capacity to continue to grow our network across North America.”
