Lorenzo D’Alessandro and his team at 427 / CSN Auto Collision have been named Bodyshop Magazine’s Bodyshop of the Year.
Through the nomination process we received dozens of entries from across the country, all of which presented compelling arguments. But, in the end, it was the abundance of both industry and community involvement, plus the shop’s undisputed service record, that nudged this shop across the line, just ahead of many others.
“Lorenzo’s team is an inspiration to the industry. Their hard work, dedication and commitment to the betterment of the collision repair business is evident from the moment you set foot in the shop. I’m happy to see 427 Auto Collision receive this award,” says J.D. Ney, editor, Bodyshop Magazine.
“Thank you on behalf of the entire D’Alessandro family and 427 Auto Collision,” said Lorenzo D’Allesandro upon learning of the award. “We are honoured and we really appreciate it.”
“There is little doubt that Lorenzo and the people he has surrounded himself with have been among the most progressive teams in the Canadian collision for many years,” says Andrew Ross, publisher of Bodyshop Magazine. “And it is also clear that his personal desire to give back to the community is unflinching and is an important component of how the entire team sees themselves in the industry and in the community.
“We are very proud to be able to have such an amazing organization to present this award to.”
In addition to the Bodyshop of the Year Award, five other shops were recognized with Honourable Mentions for their excellence.
