Lift Auto Group Acquires Chetwynd Autobody

Lift Auto Group continues rapid growth with the acquisition of Chetwynd Autobody

Lift Auto Group (“Lift”) has expanded its portfolio with the acquisition of Chetwynd Autobody located in Chetwynd, BC. Newly named, CSN Chetwynd, is now one of 24 Canada wide locations, owned and operated by Lift.

Lift will be working closely with CSN Collision Centre’s (“CSN”) to welcome the newly acquired shop to the CSN banner. Mindful of the affects that a change in ownership can have on the shop’s employees and their customers, both Lift and CSN are dedicated to ensuring that these transitions go as smoothly as possible.

Chetwynd, BC is a small town, home to a population of just over 2,500 people with strong community ties. The residents of Chetwynd rely upon familiar services from local residents who they know and trust. Learning about the local community and understanding its unique qualities is always a priority when Lift acquires a new shop. When the previous owners, Sheree and Martin were looking to sell, it was imperative to them that the shop would continue to serve the community, “We really wanted to see the business carry on. We had good employees who had been there for such a long time” Sheree says.

Importantly, the shop will continue to operate with the same great team and commitment to customer service that former owners Sheree and Martin took pride in delivering. While some change is inevitable, Lift aims to ensure that any change is positive. Becoming a member of a collective means having access to additional resources and support from a network of professionals who are industry leaders and experts in their field. Part of those resources comes from the partnership that Lift has with CSN.

Nicole Bratt, CSN Chetwynd’s newly appointed Location Manager is looking forward to the additional resources that Lift provides saying “There is so much support, Lift supports our location in all areas of the business, from marketing to parts, to day-to-day operations”.

CSN Chetwynd has been a staple in the Chetwynd community since 1994. As the lone collision repair shop in Chetwynd, honouring the shop’s reputation for exceptional service and high-quality repairs was imperative to Sheree and Martin. “We’ve heard good things about Lift Auto Group, and I’m confident they’ll do good things for our town, employees, and customers. It’s in good hands.”’
