QUÉBEC, October 19th 2016 /CNW Telbec/ –Mr. Jean-François Gargya, Director General of the CarrXpert banner, a subsidiary of the Corporation des concessionnaires automobiles du Québec, is pleased to announce an exciting partnership. Quebec’s largest network of body shops has joined efforts with Certified Collision Care to certify FCA body shops associated with Quebec’s dealership network. CarrXpert is expanding across Canada, and will be working to certify body shops with Certified Collision Care across the country.
Certified Collision Care is the Canadian division of Assured Performance Network and represents the largest OEM Certification program in North America. Certified Collision Care has an exclusive agreement with FCA Canada (Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Fiat brands) to manage and administer their Mopar Certified Collsion Repair Facility program in Canada. In order to qualify, repairers must have the proper tools, equipment, training and facilities required to properly repair vehicles to OEM specifications and ensure a vehicle’s fit, finish, durability, functionality, value, and safety are preserved.
Certified Collision Care’s rigorous five-step validation process ensures compliance with certification criteria that are based on the manufacturer’s requirements. As today’s vehicles are built with lighter materials to meet environmental standards, the body shops must follow OEM recommended repair procedures to ensure the safety of passengers. OEM Certification programs are being introduced by car manufacturers to protect consumers and ensure vehicles are safe following a collision repair. Mr.Gargya’s team is delighted with this partnership and states, “As we are committed to serve dealers, we must also have the same commitment to their respective manufacturers. This partnership is in continuity with our business model.”
Leanne Jefferies, Vice President, Canadian Operations, Assured Performance Network, is also delighted with this partnership and stated “We are very pleased to have this partnership with CarrXpert body shops. We will be able to develop the Certified network in direct collaboration with dealers and their respective manufacturers. This will support expansion of our certification program and allow us to quickly reach the goal of having a Certified collision repair choice in every community.”
