Company Overview and History

Founded in 1963 by Cy Chase in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Chase Auto Body Supplies is now a wholly owned division of the Color Compass Corporation, Canada's largest independently owned supplier to the collision repair industry.

With ten locations and four dedicated training centres in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton, and Greater Vancouver, Chase has diversified over the years to become a leader in the distribution of collision repair products in Western Canada, as well as a key supplier of industrial finishes and related products.

We have achieved success by aligning ourselves with the best brands available and providing specialized business solutions that are focused on creating profitability for our customers.

Innovation is always important, although some things from the past are definitely worth remembering. Chase's goal was to provide all customers with a level of service, support and products that exceeded their expectations. That goal continues to be the driving force behind our company today.
