Oakville, Ontario -- January 14, 2016 -- A chance to hear about the latest OEM approved methods is always sure to draw a crowd. That was certainly the case at the CSN-Automacs Collision Open House, taking place at the collision centre’s facility in Oakville, Ontario.
The event drew strong attendance from stakeholders in the insurance, collision and vendor sectors. Opening the evening, Adrian Ingoglia of CSN-Automacs Collision addressed the crowd that filled a good portion of the production space at the facility. Ingoglia thanked the many staff members and partners who had helped CSN-Automacs Collision achieve Volkswagen and Audi certifications before introducing Scott Wideman of Volkswagen Group Canada.
Wideman discussed the certification process and outlined why a safe and quality repair to one of the Volkswagen Group’s vehicles relies on the right equipment, the right processes and the right training. Wideman made use of a number of videos throughout his presentation, showcasing the materials currently being used in Volkswagen Group’s vehicles. These include not just aluminum and high-strength steel of a number of types, but structural carbon fibre. This is a material most facilities are still relatively unfamiliar with in a structural capacity.
Norm Angrove of PPG stepped up after Wideman, congratulating CSN-Automacs Collision on its achievement and noting that to succeed in today’s marketplace a collision facility must be at the forefront of both technology and the ability to provide a superior customer experience.
