Saputo Capital Collision, the business group that owns CARSTAR Ancaster and CARSTAR Ancaster West has announced their recent purchase of CARSTAR Guelph.
Joe Saputo, Owner and Operator of Saputo Capital Collision first became an owner in 2016, and in just seven short years has tripled his store count.
CARSTAR Guelph first joined the CARSTAR network in early 2000 and until 2023, was owned and operated by Georg Kulakowsky. After over four decades in the automotive industry, Kulakowsky was ready to pass the torch to the next generation of collision repair experts.
Kulakowsky’s trust was well placed in Saputo’s expertise. Saputo grew up in the industry, as his family was one of the first Canadian CARSTAR franchisees. He’s carried their commitment to excellence forward, recently earning Joe the Franchisee of the Year award at the CARSTAR annual conference.
Now, CARSTAR’s franchisee of the year and owner of three CARSTAR locations is more charged than ever to deliver operational excellence to the Guelph community and continue spearheading challenges with the strategy and business acumen that has led him to this stage of his career.
“I feel so humbled and grateful for the support and love I have received both from CARSTAR and the communities that I work and lead in,” said Joe Saputo, Owner of Saputo Capital Collison. “By investing in people and processes, I am optimistically looking forward to connecting with the Guelph community.”
