CARSTAR has announced the opening of a new location in Seguin, Texas, according to a press release.

CARSTAR Shanafelt is a 22,000 square feet facility located at 955 W Kingsbury Street and is co-owned by husband-and-wife Eddie and Shannah Donhauser. 

Eddie has been involved in the industry his entire life, influenced by his father, whose entire career was in the collision repair industry. Having now managed shops throughout his own entire career, Eddie isn’t the only one in his family who has been inspired, with both his brother and his daughter opening up their own facilities as well.

“CARSTAR has given me superior management and guidance throughout the entire onboarding process,” Eddie stated. “The rebates available, training, growth opportunities, and positive relationships with vendors created an opportunity that was too bright to ignore!”

The shop employs 18 individuals and is I-CAR Gold certified with OEM certifications. It has made efforts to be involved with “youth organizations, local schools, the county fair,” and has plans to become involved in CARSTAR-affiliated programs such as the NABC’s Recycled Rides.
