Established local auto shop CSN Automacs is under new ownership but is still 100% committed to providing the same great service as one of Oakville’s most popular collision repair centres.

Lift Auto Group (“Lift”), member of CSN Collision Centres, has acquired CSN Automacs and is maintaining the same great staff and the shop’s commitment to excellence.

As they go into retirement, previous owners Mary and Steve Ingoglia wish the business the best of luck, “The shop has a lot to offer and a good clientele. I’m happy Lift is keeping the same name, and I am confident the shop is in good hands. This was our family’s business, we loved every moment building it, but we are looking forward to enjoying our retirement.”

While CSN Automacs is under new ownership, the team remains mostly the same. Importantly, both new and long-time customers will continue to receive the same high level of service.

Positive transition

“My main concern was the future of our employees,” Ingoglia says. “Keeping the same team gave me comfort that selling to Lift was the right decision.” New location manager, Santo Sarta, who has worked at CSN Automacs for the past 11 years, is equally optimistic regarding the change in ownership.

“The people in our community know me. The only thing that’s changing is ownership, and the transition has been very positive,” Sarta says. “Lift Auto Group encourages community engagement from its shops, and likes to be involved, and I’m a big supporter of that.”

The shop’s experienced and friendly team is ready to help customers navigate what could be an overwhelming process. By assisting with insurance claims, arranging courtesy vehicles and explaining the repair process, CSN Automacs ensures the customers experience is as stress-free as possible.
