George and Myra See have built the company from a one man operation to the Largest Collision Repair Facility in Northumberland County employing approximately 12 full time technicians and office personnel.

“Our success is due largely to our employee strengths, investment in technologies and commitment to a culture of honesty and great Service. At Lakeshore ~ CSN we are deeply involved in community matters and we cater to industrial clients and the insurance industry alike.” says George See, Co-Owner of Lakeshore Auto Collision ~ CSN.

“We are very pleased to be recognized as a Certified Collision Care Facility, and to gain OEM Certifications by FCA Canada. We are committed to investing in our business, training our staff and ensuring that our customers are provided with safe repairs that meet OEM specifications. I was impressed with the Certified Collision Care system and certification process. They asked us all the right questions. The process is very thorough, and for a shop like ours that has invested in the tools, equipment and training needed to properly repair vehicles, we were able to complete the certification process in just a couple of weeks”, adds George. “I would certainly recommend the Certified Collision Care program to other business owners who are looking to add OEM certifications to their business. One of the best aspects of the program is that additional OEM certifications are included in the cost. In the next few weeks, we will have all of our Aluminum Requirements and achieve Ford Certification as well, at no additional cost to our business.”
