Kitchener, Ontario — The CARSTAR Canada Network has announced the opening of a new location in Kitchener, Ontario at 1620 King Street East.
Michael Leung, owner of CARSTAR Kitchener Centre, has managed a collision repair shop since 1981, building a successful career of more than 40 years in the auto body and collision industry.
After a brief hiatus and early retirement in 2012, Leung opened a new collision centre location with his son, Patrick.
Both are Red Seal certified repair technicians, with nearly ten years of experience working together, having served the Tri-Cities and Waterloo regions since 2012.
“Having been in the collision repair industry for many years, it was extremely rewarding to watch my son follow in my footsteps and join me at this collision repair centre,” says Leung.
“My son and I are ready to take on this new challenge and with the support of CARSTAR, we’re excited to grow this store and continue our commitment to provide industry-leading repairs for our customers.”
The new facility boasts a 325 square metre workspace, with a plethora of OEM certifications including Fiat Chrysler, Genesis, Kia, Hyundai and Nissan.
Local zone director for CARSTAR Canada, Dave Meery states that “Being in the collision repair industry for decades and working his way up through the ranks has helped Michael hone his skills to become a high-quality collision repair store owner.”
The new shop promises to be another bastion of support for the collision repair industry.
So, let’s congratulate the Leung family on their new venture!
