Sterling Autobody Centers Opens New Store in California

On Jan. 25, Sterling Autobody opened a new, 12,000-square-foot repair facility in Oakland, Calif. The new location employs 15 technicians and front office staff.

Sterling acquired the pre-existing building and renovated both the interior and exterior. Included is what Sterling says is a new, more customer-friendly office design featuring improved lighting, 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 reviewed for environmental impact.

Sterling Autobody Centers says it’s committed to protecting the environment by reducing hazardous waste and creating a cleaner, safer environment for employees and the Oakland community. This location features air respirator systems, along with the use of waterborne paint.

Sterling Autobody Centers now operates 61 vehicle repair facilities in 16 states.
