Toronto, Ontario -- November 30, 2015 -- CSN-427 Auto Collision made history in 2006 as the very first collision repair facility in the Greater Toronto Area to become Audi Aluminum certified. The repair centre has recently been recognized at an even higher level, with its certification as both an Audi Authorized Collision Repair Facility and a Volkswagen Certified Collision Repair Facility.

Lorenzo D’Alessandro is the President of CSN-427 Auto Collision. He is also a co-owner of the facility with John and Frank D’Alessandro.

"It is both an honour and a privilege for us to be recognized and awarded three plaques of distinction by Audi and Volkswagen Canada as certified partners of their aluminum and steel Certification programs,” he says. “Our commitment involves housing mandatory specialized equipment, attending year-round comprehensive training across North America, and undergoing third-party audits by DEKRA to ensure Audi/Volkswagen's brand integrity is sustained. Our commitment to Audi/Volkswagen Canada ensures that we are at the forefront of innovative technology."

Scott Wideman is the Collision Program Manager for Volkswagen Group Canada. He was at CSN-427 Auto Collision on November 27 to make a special presentation of three plaques denoting the facility’s new status.

“It was great to see the close working relationship with the sponsoring dealer, Audi Queensway, who sent their management team to be part of the award ceremony,” Wideman says. “Lorenzo and his team are very committed to ensuring the vehicles are repaired to OEM standards and they have demonstrated this commitment by making sure their staff have taken all of the available training. This commitment is a testament to the culture of continuous improvement that Lorenzo, Frank and John have instilled within their organization and we are glad to have them as a partner in achieving the highest standards for repair quality and customer satisfaction.”
