Edmonton, Alberta -- December 8, 2015 -- CARSTAR Automotive Canada has announced the addition of CARSTAR Ellerslie located at 9516 12 Avenue SW in Edmonton, Alberta.

A statement from CARSTAR says the new 20,000 sq. ft. collision centre will be the largest in the Edmonton and surrounding area. Built to reduce its environmental footprint, the centre features LED lighting, a paperless office and internet controlled air quality systems.

The owners of CARSTAR Ellerslie bring a broad and impressive mix of skill-sets to the business. Johnny Kloeckes has over 30 years in the collision industry. He currently owns two other CARSTAR locations in the Edmonton area.

Anton Wootliff, one of the other owners, has over four years experience in the collision industry and has worked with Fortune 500 companies in Silicon Valley in a senior capacity where his focus was on customer-centric solutions. The ownership team is rounded off by Ming Xu, who focuses on innovative business solutions and shares ownership of a fourth CARSTAR store with Wootliff.

“The CARSTAR brand and commitment to excellence continues to energize our ownership group and the success of our existing shops led our group to come together in starting a fourth location,” said Wootliff.

In a prepared statement, the owners of CARSTAR Ellerslie say they understand the value of its people and of creating a supportive work environment.

“Building a strong corporate culture is the cornerstone of our store’s successes. We strongly feel that we’re creating something special with CARSTAR Ellerslie. The Ellerslie location secures our position in strategically growing together with a number of new city communities,” said Kloeckes.

A healthy workplace goes hand-in-hand with their commitment to their community. CARSTAR Ellerslie sponsors a local hockey team and are also eager to support CARSTAR’s national Cystic Fibrosis Canada charity.

“We are excited to be a part of the well-respected CARSTAR brand and to work towards being the premier collision facility in Alberta,” said Xu.
