CARSTAR Russo’s Collision Opens with Plans to Continue Growth

CARSTAR Russo’s Collision Opens with Plans to Continue Growth

CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of its 15th Pennsylvania location, CARSTAR Russo’s Collision, located at 18 Crozerville Road, Aston, PA 19014.

Having grown up in a collision repair facility, CARSTAR Russo’s Collision owner Michael Russo has always been around cars. With exceptional trade schools in his area, Mike feels fortunate that he was able to receive the training he needed to provide premier repairs to his community.

“I feel very lucky to have received the training I did, because it set me on the right path to not only be a premier technician, but also become a local storeowner who understands every aspect of my business,” says Mike Russo, own, CARSTAR Russo’s Collision. “With so many mom and pop shops being bought up by corporations, this seemed like the right path for me because I can continue being a local owner and CARSTAR has that premier reputation that aligns with my values.”

This 2,500 square foot facility performs expert repairs to all makes and models with the I-CAR Gold certification behind it, proving its capabilities. Plans are already underway to expand the facility to a 10,000 square foot repair center, as Mike is eager to increase his capacity, better serving more of his community.

“It is encouraging to see franchise partners like Mike eager to expand their operations because they see such a demand for premier collision repair services in their community,” says Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “It proves that the training, equipment, education and processes that CARSTAR has in its operations platform, EDGE, is what consumers need in order to ensure a safe and quality repair.”

Having grown up in the area, Mike and his team gives back where they can, whether it is to the local fire department or other charitable causes. Looking forward to getting involved with CARSTAR’s cause, cystic fibrosis, Mike aims to join in the efforts to raise funds and awareness for this disease.

Please join us in welcoming the CARSTAR Russo’s Collision team to the network!
