IRVINE, CA--(Marketwire - January 3, 2011) - CanopyHR Solutions, an Orange County-based payroll and human resources firm, announced EZ Lube as the newest addition to its impressive client roster. The Southern California automotive retailer has more than 1,000 employees, and its 74 locations will integrate CanopyHR Solutions' full suite of services in January 2011.

Since its acquisition by Goldman Sachs, EZ Lube has streamlined its corporate structure and enhanced its systems, a process that included the selection of a new payroll and human resources solutions provider. EZ Lube met with CanopyHR in August and quickly chose the innovative human resources company to provide fully integrated human resources and payroll services beginning early next year.

"We saw that CanopyHR's driving force, similar to our own, was customer service," says Bob Lambert, EZ Lube's Vice President of Human Resources. "CanopyHR can offer EZ Lube the same technologies as the big firms, but with unmatched customer loyalty and dedication. Their growth outlook also scales with our own. As we continue to expand, CanopyHR's parallel growth can continue to support our directives."

EZ Lube's transition from the mega-agencies to a local company with shared values is an exciting one for both companies, who put a premium on unparalleled customer service and dedication to the client experience. Now that its payroll and human resources systems are on track, EZ Lube is poised to build upon a strong long-term relationship with CanopyHR Solutions.

EZ Lube is Southern California's only homegrown quick-lube chain, providing complete automotive maintenance and striving to help customers extend the lives of their vehicles. Since 1988, EZ Lube has dedicated itself to customer service and providing quality care. The chain has grown to 74 locations, all company-owned, with no plans to slow down.

"It's satisfying to partner with a like-minded local company," says Jeff Fenster, CanopyHR Solutions President. "We look forward to maintaining a strong relationship and assisting EZ Lube as it continues to grow throughout Southern California."

CanopyHR Solutions focuses on providing the most reliable customer service, top-of-the-line technology and a flexible business model to meet its clients' varying needs, all for the best value. By streamlining payroll, benefits and human resources, CanopyHR remains competitive and effective in the industry.

Because of its innovative technology and dedicated customer services initiatives, CanopyHR allows its customers to focus their time and resources on their own businesses' needs, which ultimately delivers much more than human resources. It allows clients to devote their energy to what made them successful in the first place.
