For the past year, CARSTAR’s operations team has been working with CARSTAR owners around the country to help them prepare their shops for aluminum repair, train technicians on aluminum repair processes for structural and non-structural jobs, and source the appropriate tools and equipment. This training program will continue through 2015.
CARSTAR shops that are part of Ford dealerships are officially certified in aluminum repair through Assured Performance and listed as approved facilities on the Ford website. Other CARSTAR stores are recognized for their aluminum repair training, tools and equipment per the Ford Collision Network. In addition, CARSTAR has its own internal certification process that is part of its proprietary EDGE Performance Tier 5.
“We have always been committed to leading the industry in having the best-trained collision repair professionals,” said David Byers, CEO of CARSTAR. “This is a fundamental part of our ability to deliver the industry’s highest KPIs and customer satisfaction. As vehicle technology evolves, we must continue to provide this advanced training for our collision repair team. And, it means we can send our insurance partners and fleet providers a list of ready and capable stores to handle their repair needs.”
