The Carrossier ProColor network, a member of CSN Collision Centres, the largest network of collision repair facilities in Canada, is pleased to announce the recent certification of Carrossier ProColor Hébertville by the CCIAP.
« We were certified in May 2018. Our main motivations to join the CCIAP were to become a reference in our sector as well as to have the full trust of our customers, » says Jimmy St-Pierre, owner of Carrossier ProColor Hébertville.
The increasing complexity of vehicle repairs, along with the required training and equipment progress, requires that all involved partners have evidence of the capabilities of the workshops. The CCIAP program demonstrates to customers and insurance partners that the collision repair shop has the skills and equipment required to repair the latest vehicles.
« Nowadays, it has become very difficult to repair damaged vehicles, » says Jimmy St-Pierre. « With the arrival of new materials and technologies, we wanted to be able to repair according to the standards of the manufacturers. This certification, I firmly believe that it is a good way to be recognized by the industry. »
Indeed, for repairers, demonstrating the ability to perform safe and effective repairs is the only way to ensure growth and profits.
« We have invested more than $ 300,000 over the last two years in state-of-the-art equipment, in training, and it’s not over yet. It’s a lot of investment, but this new equipment allows us to save time and do superior quality work, » says Mr. St-Pierre.
Many collision repair centre accreditation programs may exist in the Canadian market, but it is critical that one of them be owned and run by Canadians such as the CCIAP: a program that is constantly updated based on the Canadian context. Only then will our destiny of accreditation remain in our hands. »
« It’s a pride for us to have the CCIAP certification. I highly recommend it. It takes time and money, but for the future I think it will be a way to maintain our market share, » concludes Jimmy St-Pierre.
Carrossier ProColor Hébertville is located at 15, Commerciale street in Hébertville.
