Manitoba Public Insurance’s new Centre for Automotive Research and Training (located at the J.W. Zacharias Physical Damage Research Centre in Winnipeg) has been officially certified by Certified Collision Care.
This certification, that ensures proper and safe repair, is being conducted to manufacturer’s specifications within our new facility,” said Ward Keith, Vice-President Business Development & Communications and CAO of Manitoba Public Insurance. “Certification of our new physical damage and research centre validates our commitment to Manitoba’s collision repair industry.”
To become Certified, Manitoba Public Insurance passed the rigorous Certification process essential to help ensure a proper and safe repair of the new generation of advanced vehicles. Less than five percent of collision repair facilities in Canada are able to meet the stringent requirements to become officially Certified and recognized.
The Certified network is made up exclusively of best-in-class collision repair businesses that have met, or exceeded, the stringent requirements of the Certification program.
“We are very pleased that Manitoba Public Insurance has achieved Certification by Certified Collision Care, and meets the OEM Certification criteria for Fiat Chrysler, Nissan and Ford”, said Leanne Jefferies, Vice President; Canadian Operations for Assured Performance.
“The Certification criteria is based upon auto manufacturer requirements. These are critical to ensure the vehicle fit, finish, durability, value and safety following a collision. As new model vehicles are being introduced that use light-weight, high-strength materials and advanced technology, a proper repair according to manufacturer specification is even more important than ever to ensure the passenger safety and proper performance of the vehicle.”
