“CARSTAR has been a great partner for us,” said Jerry Rhyne, owner, CARSTAR Jerry Rhynes Collision Charlotte. “They have helped us connect with amazing companies like Axalta to create our paint program, they provide operational support to help us enhance our repair processes and they provide incredible savings through its scale – something I simply can’t get as an independent owner.”
The grand opening celebration hosted industry partners from the Charlotte area to enjoy lunch, tours of the facility as well as an opportunity to win raffle prizes. The No. 24 Axlata Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 was on-site with exclusive CARSTAR branding as well as the local Kiss 95.1 radio station, providing entertainment for the afternoon.
