All-Star Transportation Receives ASE Blue Seal of Excellence

WATERBURY, CT, Feb. 14 – All-Star Transportation has received a Blue Seal of Excellence from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of vehicle repair and service.

All-Star Transportation, a family-owned business based in Waterbury, provides student transportation services to 30 towns and cities in Litchfield, New Haven and upper Fairfield counties. The company operates three full-service shops in New Milford, Seymour and Torrington, and employs more than 900 people at its 18 terminals, including 30 service technicians.

To receive the Seal of Excellence, 75 percent of a company’s service technicians must be certified by ASE. In addition, there must be a certified technician in each area of service offered. To remain in the Blue Seal program, a business must renew each year and confirm its professionals’ certification status.

“We are committed to providing the safest vehicles and drivers, and it is very gratifying that our efforts have been recognized by ASE,” said Leslie Sheldon, All-Star’s operations manager. “I also believe we have the best mechanics who make it possible for us to provide outstanding service to all our customers.”

“Businesses that have earned the ASE Blue Seal of Excellence Recognition have gone the extra mile in support of their customers. Employing ASE-certified professionals is an important element in their overall customer satisfaction program. We salute those businesses that achieve this goal and thank them for helping promote quality automotive repair and service,” said Timothy Zilke, ASE president.

ASE, based in Leesburg, VA, was founded in 1972 as an independent organization dedicated to improving the quality of automotive service and repair through the voluntary testing and certification of automotive technicians. Technicians, engine machinists and parts specialists have participated in ASE’s program from all segments of the service and repair industry. Today, more than 350,000 professionals are certified by ASE.
