Vaughan, Ontario — Pfaff Autoworks of Vaughan, Ontario, has been named a finalist in VeriFacts Automotive Achievement in Collision Repair Excellence (ACE) award for 2020.
Each year, VeriFacts Automotive recognizes a collision repair center that has participated in the VeriFacts Verified Quality (VQ) Program for a minimum of six months and has consistently delivered superior output repair quality. The finalists for the ACE Award for exceptional collision repair center have all displayed an industry-leading commitment to safe, correct and smart repairs, according to VeriFacts.
Pfaff Autoworks was the first Canadian shop to receive a VeriFacts Quality Medallion in 2019. Collision Repair mag recently spoke to General Manager Jeff Pabst, where he said the facility has recently been focused on preparing for ever-increasing influxes of technology in the industry, including the shift toward electric vehicles.
“We’re a Tesla-certified facility, so we’ve seen first-hand the increase in volume in [the EV sector]. We’re also a Volkswagen, Audi, MINI, BMW and Porsche-certified shop; those manufacturers are all pushing hard and heavy on EVs. So we’ve been looking at this for about a year now, gearing ourselves up so we’re not caught behind the eightball when they really start to flood in,” he said. “We’re anticipating somewhere in the neighbourhood of 20 to 30 percent of the cars that we repair in the next three to five years will be EVs.”
The winner will of the 2020 ACE Award will be announced by VeriFacts later this year. For a full list of finalists, visit verifactsauto.com/2020-ace-awards-exceptional-repair-center-finalists.
