Trois-Rivières, Quebec -- November 12, 2014 -- Carrossier ProColor has announced the relocation of their Trois-Rivières-Ouest collision centre.

Under ownership of Trois-Rivières-born Marc Pilon and wife France Després, the new Carrossier ProColor Trois-Rivières-Ouest location is currently under renovation and is set to open for business in Jan. 2105. Pilon also owns Carrossier ProColor Trois-Rivières and Carrossier ProColor Cap-de-la-Madeleine.

The owners' children Hugo and Emily, as well as their spouses, along with three of Pilon's brothers-in-law and nephew, are all involved in what has become a family business.

With a background in administration, Hugo has spent the last seven years managing the three locations' 40 employees, and says the move was necessitated by growing pains.

“The workload was constantly increasing, and we no longer had enough space," he says. "We decided to build a new collision centre which is not only larger, but more modern and functional."

The new 10,000 sq. ft. centre is just a stone's throw away from the old location, moving from 2750 to 1750 on Charbonneau St., and will include an indoor appraisal bay, a high-speed drying system, as well as new state-of-the-art equipment—including a larger paint booth built to accommodate Sprinter-type vehicles. Other improvements include a Car-O-Liner alignment bench, a repair station for bumper plastic and a sandblasting-vacuuming system.

Hugo says that staying in the area was an important factor in selecting a new location.

“The customer service we offer is our core strength,” he says. “This includes an even distribution of our collision centres across the city. Access to our centres must be quick and easy for our customers."

He adds that the long-standing relationship with Carrossier ProColor has played a strong role in their growth.

“[We've been with] Carrossier ProColor since we started more than ten years ago—the Cap-de-la-Madeleine collision centre opened in 2003. Back then, Carrossier ProColor was a barely two-year old banner," Hugo says. "We evolved together. We share the same desire to stay young and constantly innovate.

"With Carrossier ProColor, there is always something happening; their business has a can-do attitude, just like ours. We thrive for innovation, and the banner encourages us to do so. We have a great mutual influence."

The old Trois-Rivières-Ouest collision centre will continue to operate as a mechanical workshop.
