Lift Auto Group continues their Canadian expansion, acquiring another CSN Collision Centre
TORONTO, OCTOBER 19, 2021 – The momentum of the CSN Collision Centres’ partnership with Lift Auto Group (“Lift”) is showing no signs of slowing down as the pair of organizations collaborated to transition the ownership of CSN Superior into the Lift portfolio. CSN Superior is located in Sidney, BC and has been a staple of the community that is home to 12,000 people, for the last 40-years. “Lift is very excited to include CSN Superior in its expanding portfolio of 18 collision repair shops from coast to coast,” said Lift Auto Group President & CEO, Mark Reineking. “For decades, CSN Superior has been the market leading collision repair facility in the vibrant community of Sidney, BC, with former owners Rob and Allison Peters creating a formidable legacy of quality repairs and an unsurpassed customer experience.”
Sidney is just 25km from the capital city of Victoria and is quickly becoming a centre for technological innovation that draws increased tourism from the surrounding major metropolises of Vancouver and Seattle. Having a high-quality repairer in the region, effectively owned and operated by Lift with theand supported ofby CSN, and Lift in tandem will provide the drivers with the essential auto body and collision repair expertise they need. For CSN Superior the opportunity to solidify its future outlook as the collision repair landscape contracts bodes well for the long-term goals of the staff. In an industry that is quickly evolving and becoming more technologically complex, CSN Superior and its highly trained staff will continue to solidify itself as a leader in its field. Remaining in place as mManager, Justin Cox will continue to lead the day-to-day operations. “Importantly, the same great staff will continue to operate the shop, with Justin continuing to lead a team that takes immense pride in being the best,” said Reineking.
As consolidation continues to navigate the unsteady waters of the automotive industry from dealers to repairers, even the most outstanding operators are making plans for the stretch run. Providing a solution for both independent repair centres and those currently aligned with a banner network, CSN and Lift present a unique value offering. “The combination of support that we present to our locations who are team CSN within the Lift portfolio is industry leading,” said CSN Western Sales Manager Kari Barton. “There is nothing else like it because our shops get the best marketing and operations support from both organizations with a name that has been known as the highest quality network in our industry for 20-years.”
