1Collision Adds Estrella Collision to Network

1Collision Adds Estrella Collision to Network

1Collision said it is looking forward to growth in Arizona with the addition of Estrella Collision.

1Collision announced that Estrella Collision has joined its nationwide network. Based in Avondale, Arizona, the family-owned and -operated collision repair and paint facility prides itself on providing excellent service to customers and operating with integrity, 1Collision said.

Jason Smith, owner of Estrella Collision, said he decided to become part of 1Collision after hearing industry peers speak highly of the network.

“I like the idea of meeting new people with different ideas on the future direction of the industry,” he said. “With the group discounts available and the reasonable fees, I felt the risk vs. reward was there.”

Smith started in the industry as a paint technician in 2014 and noticed that some shops weren’t treating employees well. “I set out to do it better and treat employees as equals,” said Smith. “That’s what I believe truly sets us apart from other shops.”

John Hollingsworth, director of new business development for 1Collision, said the company is excited to grow in Arizona with the addition of Estrella Collision.

“They are a staple shop in the Avondale market and part of the start of our growth in Arizona,” he said. “We look forward to growing our partnership and helping them reach their goals.”
