FCA Canada announced that it has entered into an exclusive, strategic agreement with Certified Collision Care, the Canadian division of the Assured Performance Network. Certified Collision Care will be an integral strategic partner that will co-develop, launch and manage the Mopar Certified Collision Repair Facility program.
This new program will deliver joint-effort collision repair facility certification, infrastructure and turnkey programs. This will allow dealers and independent collision repair facilities to meet the qualifications necessary to be certified by FCA Canada as a collision repair facility of choice for its vehicles. The program will ensure that FCA Canada vehicle owners can choose a certified collision repair provider that has the proper tools, equipment, training and facility required to repair their vehicles to OEM specifications and ensure the vehicles’ fit, finish, durability, functionality, value and safety are preserved. This is particularly important based upon increasingly complex vehicle design and repair requirements.
Leveraging Certified Collision Care’s existing processes eliminates redundant costs, making Mopar Collision Repair certification more affordable for dealerships and independently owned repair businesses that can meet requirements.
As of June 1st, all existing Certified Collision Care facilities will be recognized by FCA Canada as Mopar Certified Collision Repair Facilities and will receive special “FCA Certified” signage as part of the joint-effort, integrated Certified Collision Care program, which uses the slogan: “Certified Once, Recognized by Many.”
“Mopar’s commitment to support our customers starts right from the day they purchase their vehicle,” said John Eason, Mopar Service and Parts marketing manager, FCA Canada. “This new nationwide program with Certified Collision Care gives owners piece of mind that they have an FCA-Certified Collision Repair Facility for their vehicle should they ever need one.”
Leanne Jefferies, VP, Canadian Operations for Certified Collision Care, added, “We are proud to partner with FCA Canada to add the Mopar Certified Collision Repair Facility Program and FCA Canada recognition to our certified shops’ credentials. The national network we are developing helps to fulfill their commitment to their vehicle buyers.”
