Two Omaha CARSTAR locations were recognized with a “Silver Award of Distinction” at the annual Better Business Bureau (BBB) Integrity Awards Event held on Nov. 2nd at the Embassy Suites Conference Center in La Vista, Neb.
This award recognizes organizations in metro Omaha that have demonstrated ethical practices with key stakeholders including customers, employees and community at large, rather than a company’s growth, profitability or popularity.
Margo Riekes, communications director of Nebraska BBB, said these two Omaha body shops were selected because their application demonstrated that integrity is important for success and profitability and that business ethics were integrated into their corporate culture.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by the BBB as a company that deals with our customers, employees and vendors in an ethical manner,” said Greg Petersen, co-owner. “We are proud to have our two body shops receive this recognition.”
The two CARSTAR locations in Omaha are owned by partners Greg Petersen, Bob Keith and Tim Jensen. Silver Hammer CARSTAR was founded in 1979, and Northwest CARSTAR was opened in 1996.
The judges’ decision was based on the score of CARSTAR’s application compared with the others in the judging category of 25 to 99 employees. These locations also received this award in 2014.
