Aluminum Intensive Vehicle Repair.
The training and knowledge required to perform structural aluminum repairs is extremely critical in maintaining the safety and integrity of a vehicle. These types of repairs require not only highly skilled techniques, trained technicians, and certified ISO aluminum welders, but also the use of very specific tools and equipment. The metallurgical properties of aluminum become altered in a collision event and it is paramount to have a trained expert who is able to identify the significance of the sustained damage and know the requirements are for repairs from the OEM. For this reason, the European OEMs have restricted aluminum components to only repair facilities that have been through extensive training and testing for certification. Mid island’s repair professionals have been well versed in aluminum for over 60 years and we have three aluminum repair-only clean rooms dedicated to ensuring proper repairs. Mid island collision has invested in excess of a $800,000 in aluminum intensive repair equipment and specific training.
