95-year-old collision facility joins the Fix Auto team

By CRM staff

Toronto, Ontario – April 22, 2019 – Fix Auto is pleased to welcome its newest members to the network, Fix Auto Thunder Bay South. Opening their doors back in 1924, the Badanai family has served customers needing collision repair services for 95 years. “It’s this rich history in the industry that makes us so excited to welcome George Badanai and his team to the family,” said O’Keefe.

“My grandfather started the business after emigrating from Italy and it’s been in the family ever since,” said Badanai, President and dealer principal of Badanai Motors. Badanai purchased the business from his father in 1992 and has kept the tradition of amazing customer service and high-quality repair work alive.

To ensure their highly skilled technicians have some of the best equipment in the industry, Fix Auto Thunder Bay South has two paint booths, one full downdraft, and one semi-downdraft, two new downdraft prep stations as well as a new Blackhawk Power Pro 3000 dedicated frame bench. To complement the newly installed equipment is the recently renovated customer waiting lounge designed with a clean, modern look and feel.

The national brand recognition and advertising, positive industry reputation, and strong insurance partner relationships were just a few reasons Badanai chose to partner with Fix Auto. “We have been around for a long time, so choosing to partner with a banner was not a decision we took lightly,” commented Badanai. “Fix Auto’s national presence and reputation in the Canadian collision repair industry is what sets them apart.” 

“We are really looking forward to our partnership with George and the entire team as they continue to grow their business as Fix Auto Thunder Bay South. It’s not often a business in any industry lasts 95 years and remains successful today; it’s a true testament to their dedication to quality service, customer satisfaction and overall commitment to the industry,” said O’Keefe.
