CARSTAR American Collision Experts Opens in Michigan


CARSTAR American Collision Experts Opens in Michigan

CARSTAR, North America’s largest multi-store network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR American Collision Experts, located at 6497 Highland Rd, Waterford Twp, MI 48327.

Owned by Ken Lawrence, CARSTAR American Collision Experts provides a premier experience to its community through its skillful collision repairs and outstanding customer service. Between Ken and his main technician, there are over 50 years of collision repair experience, with plans to continue the acceleration of the business.

“Since I could pick up a broom, maybe at 5 years old, I have been in the collision repair industry as my father and uncle both owned their own facilities,” says Ken Lawrence. “When the CARSTAR team reached out to me, it was so refreshing to talk to them because they were so passionate about the business and they helped me to realize I could get the support I needed without selling out and becoming a corporately owned store.”

CARSTAR American Collision Experts is a 10,000 square foot facility, equipped with state of the art tools to provide expert repairs to all makes and models. Having earned its I-CAR Gold certification as well as its Automotive Service Excellence Master Certification, CARSTAR American Collision Experts is a premier facility with highly certified technicians who prioritize customer service and repair quality above all else.

“With the rapid progression of our industry, it can be difficult for stores to stay ahead of advancements and ensure their technicians not only earn key certifications but uphold them with continuous training,” says Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “Ken is an absolute professional and you can tell how much respect he has for his trade because the investment he puts into each technician and his facility demonstrates his commitment.”

Eager to give back to the community he works and lives in, Ken looks forward to participating in the CARSTAR charitable cause, fighting cystic fibrosis, on top of his continued philanthropic efforts including holiday donations and sponsoring local initiatives.

Please join us in celebrating the launch of CARSTAR American Collision Experts!
