Dallas-Based Trade Secret Chosen as Boardwalk Auto Group’s Audi Authorized Collision Repair Center

Trade Secret was recently certified for Audi aluminum frame and body repair, the second of two centers in the state of Texas.

Dallas, Texas-based Boardwalk Auto Group announced that it has chosen Trade Secret as its preferred Audi Authorized Collision Repair Center. Trade Secret was recently certified for Audi aluminum frame and body repair, the second of two centers in the state of Texas.

"This is a significant acknowledgment by Boardwalk Auto Group and Boardwalk Audi of Trade Secret’s commitment to the highest quality repair of their clients’ automobiles," said Tom Lhotan, president of Trade Secret. "Repairing aluminum has introduced a totally new level of technical expertise and certification. It’s the next level of service, further enhancing our commitment to total customer satisfaction."

Trade Secret says its Audi Authorized Collision Repair Center certification comes after a $200,000 investment in facilities, training, machinery and tooling made specifically for the repair of aluminum Audis, specifically the R8, A8 and the TT. Aluminum repair requires near hospital-like sterile conditions to avoid the cross contamination of steel and aluminum, Trade Secret notes.

Brian Ongaro, vice president of sales and marketing for Boardwalk Auto Group, said, "Boardwalk knows that Trade Secret repairs each vehicle we send over as if it were their own. We have complete confidence that the collision repair will be done right, the first time."
