CARSTAR, North America’s largest multi-store network of independently owned collision repair facilities, announced the opening of CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body, located at 13928 233rd Street, Cold Spring, MN 56320.

Gary Spychala, Erik Gebault and Mark Seidenstricker are the owners of CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body. The team has been in the industry for over 15 years, with Gary and Erik meeting through St. Cloud Technical and Community College, then Mark years later through other industry ties. With a common interest in high facility standards and operations, this like-minded ownership group prioritizes repair quality.

“We wanted to stay current with the demands and trends of our industry, which can be overwhelming if you do not have the proper support in place,” says Mark Seidenstricker, owner, CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body. “CARSTAR brings in new opportunities for shop education, provides a network of other facilities to work with and helps us grow our overall business for our customers who entrust us with their vehicles.”

CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body is an 8,000 square foot facility with the industry’s latest equipment to provide premier repairs to all makes and models. As an I-CAR Gold certified facility, CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body is a part of the small 20 percent of collision repair centers who have completed the rigorous training requirements to earn this certification.

“Having franchise partners who understand the importance of certifications and operational processes is what makes our network of premier facilities what it is,” says Dean Fisher, president, CARSTAR. “We are proud to welcome facilities like CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body, as they value their service levels and repair standards, which is a founding value for our organization.”

Looking to give back to the community and industry they love, the team at CARSTAR Precision Collision Auto Body looks forward to continuing their sponsorships of nearby high schools and apprenticeship programs to help raise awareness about the opportunities within collision repair.
