Owner Phil Chartrand sees opportunity amid COVID-19 uncertainty.
At a time when the collision repair industry is facing one of its biggest challenges, the CSN Collision Centres network is still expanding.
The newest collision centre to join CSN’s network of high-quality collision repairers is CSN Phil’s, located in Sturgeon Falls, Ont. This represents the fifth location to join the collision centre in Northern Ontario, giving the network a roster of quality collision centres that extends from North Bay all the way to Thunder Bay on the shores of Lake Superior.
CSN Phil’s (formerly Yvon Collision) has been serving the West Nipissing area since 2008 and represents the core of what collision repair means to a tight-knit community.
For CSN Phil’s, every customer is a neighbour and the shop has earned an outstanding reputation within the West Nipissing area for delivering on the promise of safe and proper repairs.
CSN Phil’s is owned and operated by a veteran of the collision repair industry, Phil Chartrand. In the collision repair business since 2000, Phil Chartrand is recognized as an exceptional member of the West Nipissing community. He believes that every customer deserves the best treatment you can offer.
At CSN Phil’s we are large enough to serve the customer but small enough to really care.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding the economy and collision repair in general, Phil is sure he made the right decision to join CSN. “I chose CSN because they are a nationally recognized brand with a focus on repairing vehicles properly.
Their model of collaboration and flexibility works very well for me in a smaller community because I can tie my existing name to theirs, which empowers all of us,” Chartrand said with enthusiasm.
The addition of CSN Phil’s to the CSN Collision Centres repair network comes when the world is facing unprecedented circumstances. CSN Collision Centres Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Larry French, remains confident.
“There is definitely a lack of clarity about when we will all come out of this, but our network is very strong. We have the best operators in the country, and we have the infrastructure to support them until this situation is over.” French said positively. “We are thrilled to have another collision centre in Northern Ontario to provide high-quality repairs and world-class customer service.” French concluded.
CSN Phil’s was activated as an official CSN Collision Centre on April 1, 2020.
