CHARLOTTE (April 24, 2018) – CARSTAR, the continent’s largest Multi-Shop Operator (MSO) network of independently owned collision repair facilities, continued to expand its footprint in the U.S. and Canada with more than 30 new store openings already in 2018.


“We continue to see growth as independent store owners join the CARSTAR network to build their businesses,” said Michael Macaluso, President of CARSTAR.  “These owners benefit from CARSTAR’s strong North American footprint, insurance relationships, purchasing volume, standard operating procedures and training programs.  And, rather than selling out their businesses to a consolidator, they can retain the ownership for future generations and drive their profitability and performance at the same time.”


CARSTAR facilities feature state-of-the-art repair equipment, expert painting, towing assistance, vehicle pick-up and delivery in service markets where applicable, and a nationwide warranty.


Across North America, CARSTAR leads the collision repair industry in the highest quality repairs and excellent customer service.  It works with all major insurance carriers in the U.S. and Canada.
