Sterling Autobody Centers Expands Chicago Footprint with Naperville Location

Sterling Autobody Centers opened a new, 24,000-square-foot repair facility in Naperville, Ill., today. The location employs 17 technicians and front office staff and is open Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 6p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to noon.

“2009 was a record year for the Sterling organization,” said Sterling President Nick Notte. “It’s gratifying to see our success allowing us to fund the growth of our business in this second of several new stores planned for 2010.”

Sterling acquired this former collision repair facility and renovated both the interior and exterior. Included is a customer-friendly office featuring warmer tones and retail-like conveniences.

The repair center incorporates visual management fixtures of the Lean Manufacturing tenants. Many of the building elements remain, and new materials were carefully reviewed for environmental impact, Sterling says. The facility includes a dual drive-in and enclosed estimating bays equipped with a professional appraiser office for customer privacy.   

Sterling says it’s committed to protecting the environment by reducing hazardous waste and creating a cleaner, safer environment for employees and the Naperville community.  This location features air respirator systems, attending to employee safety and comfort, along with plans for future use of waterborne paint.

In addition to the new Naperville location, Sterling currently operates repair facilities in the following Chicago area locations:  Libertyville, East Dundee, Rolling Meadows, Blue Island, and Lombard.
