By April 30, 2019August 15th, 2019Welcome to the Family

CHARLOTTE (April 30, 2019) – CARSTAR, North America’s largest multi-store network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR Kutztown, located at 15827 Kutztown Road, Route 222, Maxatawny, PA 19538.

Formerly Engelman’s Auto Body, a trusted repair center that opened in the early nineties, this location was recently purchased by the Legacy group. Brothers Eric and Mike Horvath along with their partner Matt Dewalt make up this CARSTAR multi-store owner group, where CARSTAR Kutztown is now their fifth location.

“We are grateful to have Engelman family members on the team at CARSTAR Kutztown, because our dads started in the early 70’s we know how important that family legacy is,” says Eric Horvath, co-owner, CARSTAR Kutztown. “CARSTAR allows us to keep ownership with added support so we can help advance this facility while staying true to the legacy of our fathers and the Engelman family.”

CARSTAR Kutztown is a 9,000 square foot facility that will be managed by Paul Angstadt. Already I-CAR Gold certified, CARSTAR Kutztown is looking to pursue other OEM certifications to ensure that the Maxatawny community receives premier repairs to all makes and models.

“Majority of our franchise family is comprised of family owned businesses who want to extend the legacy in their community but need additional support to stay competitive in their markets,” says Michael Macaluso, President, CARSTAR. “It is exciting to see our multi-store owners grow their operations with other family owned businesses, because it just keeps those homegrown stories alive.”

The Legacy group aims to give back to the communities they serve. Whether it is through their annual vehicle donations, local charitable contributions or their deep commitment to their employees, this team of owners ensures that their services extend far beyond collision repair.

Please join us in welcoming the CARSTAR Kutztown team to the CARSTAR family!
