LEAWOOD, KS (February 25, 2014) – Russom’s CARSTAR Collision is expanding the national network for CARSTAR Auto Body Repair Experts, North America’s largest multi-shop operator network (MSO), with its second location in Dyersburg, TN.
Brad Russom, owner of Russom’s CARSTAR Collision – Rutherford, officially opened Russom’s CARSTAR Collision – Dyersburg, located at 2340 Upper Finley Road, Dyersburg, TN 38024 with a Chamber of Commerce event.
After working with his grandfather, father and uncle in collision repair and rebuilding from an early age, Brad Russom built and opened Brad Russom Motor Company in 1993 in Rutherford, TN. He repaired, painted, performed mechanical repairs and provided wrecker services on his own until the business grew to currently include two repair techs, painter, detailer, mechanic and office staff. Brad Russom Motor Company partnered with CARSTAR in 2010. Russom contributes the continued success and growth of the business to his 35 years of experience in the auto repair business, the longevity of his staff and their commitment to providing an exceptional quality repair experience.
The Dyersburg / Dyer County Chamber of Commerce “Ribbon Cutting” ceremonies were recently held at Russom’s CARSTAR Collision in Dyersburg, Tn.
