CSN Versatile in St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu, Quebec is the newest location added to the growing CSN roster in la belle province. Continuing the momentum despite a challenging and uncertain year, CSN has been able to recruit some of the collision repair market’s leading operators in Quebec. Simon Proteau, the owner of CSN Versatile began his automotive career as a detailing technician but quickly realized that his passion for cars wasn’t just about mechanics, tuning, and performance but about the people that drive them. “I believe that trust is the main quality customers need when they choose a repair facility and building trust is what I enjoy the most,” Proteau said. His desire to make positive change in the industry came to fruition in 2003 when he opened his own body shop.
The synergy between what Proteau would consider to be his core mission and CSN’s central approach to the collision repair process, is what makes him an ideal CSN location owner. CSN holds itself to a standard of quality and customer care that is rooted in being the trusted advisor for the driving communities it serves. “CSN is the right fit for me because we have similar goals. I want so badly to change the perception of the body shop industry and I know that CSN wants the same thing,” said Proteau. Defeating the misconception that collision and auto body repair is an unsophisticated trade is one of the goals that has long held CSN in the highest regard in the industry. “We are making it a central part of our corporate strategy to educate today’s consumer on what the right collision repair experience should be,” said CSN Director of Marketing and Communications, Ashley Thorpe. “That’s part of what makes this signing so beneficial not only to the community of St-Jean-Sur-Richelieu but for CSN as an organization, we know Simon is committed to improving the repair experience for every customer he serves.”
The evolving landscape of the collision industry is among the driving factors that keeps Proteau, and his staff energized. As products and technology change, Proteau and his team pride themselves on being versatile in response to the dynamism that is embedded into automotive repair. Its this innovative approach that makes CSN Versatile such a valued addition to the Quebec roster. “Simon and his team are very advanced technically which positions them well for the future as vehicles continue to advance in their complexity,” said Charles Boivin, Quebec Regional Sales Manager. “They are working towards their Volkswagen Certification and a few years ago they worked on the Porsche Attack project at the Montreal Grand Prix, so they have the credentials and track record to prove their abilities.”
