Hinton, Alberta — The picturesque town of Hinton, in Alberta, is the latest region to join ProColor Collision’s growing footprint in Canada as the iconic collision repair brand reinforces its market presence across the country.
Chris Peterson, Regional Vice-President of Fix Network–Western Canada, welcomed ProColor Collision Apex Hinton to the network, describing it as another example of how Fix Network was supporting independent body shops in creating collision repair facilities of the future.
“ProColor Collision Apex Hinton was looking for the value that a network can bring, helping them improve their operations so that they could deliver quality work and high customer satisfaction,” Peterson says. “We’re delighted that they chose ProColor Collision to be their partner and look forward to assisting their business growth and profitability.”
Jason and Lisa Cumby, owners and operators of ProColor Collision Apex Hinton, are no strangers to the automotive world. Jason’s fascination with cars began when he took up his first job in a body shop when still in high school. That fascination led to 28 years in the aftermarket industry, including close to seven years running his own business. Since moving to Alberta in 2006, the Cumbys have built a strong relationship with the closely knit Hinton community.
“We are the only body shop in Hinton that is locally run and operated,” explains Jason. “When people choose our shop, they know that their money remains in the Grand Yellowhead region. While we have supported and sponsored a wide array of community initiatives, we have also ensured that our shop offers an unequalled vehicle repair and customer service experience that we can be truly proud of.”
Earlier called Apex Body Shop Ltd and located on 220 Kelley Rd, ProColor Collision Apex Hinton is an advanced collision repair shop that enjoys a well-earned reputation for carrying out complex collision repairs on all makes and models of vehicles. To elevate their game further, the Cumbys took the decision to align their business with an established franchise network like ProColor Collision, where they could have wider access to insurance providers and suppliers.
One of the main reasons to join ProColor Collision was Chris Peterson’s personal approach to welcoming new franchisees onboard and familiarising them with the network.
“Chris took time to answer our questions with great dedication and worked closely with us to keep our individuality while helping us to progress to the next level of our business,” says Lisa.
Jason and Lisa believe that the freedom to operate their business was another attractive feature. “ProColor Collision offers us the flexibility to remain in control of our business decisions as we continue to service our small rural Alberta town while being able to partner with multiple vendors and suppliers at a more competitive price range to our customers,” Lisa adds.
