CARSTAR, North America’s largest premier network of independently owned and operated collision repair facilities, is surprising 30 of its collision repair technicians with a 3M™ File Belt Sander in celebration of employee appreciation month.
CARSTAR’s employee appreciation is a part of the yearlong celebration of its 30th anniversary. Each month, the CARSTAR family is doing something unique to thank the many communities, franchise partners and employees for their continued support throughout its 30th years of business.
“We would not have made it to our 30th-anniversary milestone without these outstanding technicians performing premier collision repairs in our facilities every day,” says Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “To read the various submissions from our CARSTAR franchise partners, highlighting why they value these technicians not only demonstrates the remarkable attitudes and dedication they have, but also shows how much their work means to these owners and managers.”
CARSTAR locations across North America took time to highlight why their technicians are so valued in their facility, for a chance to win one of the generously donated 3M™ File Belt Sander’s.
“We’re excited to reward 30 top technicians across the CARSTAR network for their hard work and commitment to performance,” said strategic accounts manager for 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division, Mark Algie. “From the very beginning, 3M has been working hand-in-hand with CARSTAR to build the original business, remaining a proud partner for three decades. We’re honored to help CARSTAR celebrate its 30th anniversary with this donation.”

Positive attitude, taking initiative, open to cross training in other roles, flexible in workload, following proper repair procedures, stepping up in times of need were some of the key attributes demonstrated by the winning technicians. Many submissions also expressed the difficulty of simply picking one technician, as they operate in a team-based environment citing that everyone likely deserves the recognition.
