Fix Network, has welcomed owner-operator Surais ‘Sam’ Samlal and his team at ProColor Collision Pickering, making it the 8th ProColor Collision location in Ontario.
ProColor Collision Pickering offers auto body repair services and paints correction.
The shop is a reflection of owner-operator Surais ‘Sam’ Samlal’s keenness to radically transform his family-owned automotive business into a complete collision repair facility.
Associated with the region’s collision repair industry for the past 42 years, Sam began his automotive journey at an early age working in his family-owned auto repair shop in his native Trinidad and Tobago.
That early fascination with the automotive industry soon led him to open his own repair facility in Pickering 40 years back, operating from a small shed at the time.
“People have chosen our shop over the years due to our tireless work ethic and diligence,” says Sam. “When it comes to customer experience and ease of use, I believe in going beyond their expectations and doing things outside of our estimate. I am most proud of never having a screaming, angry customer!” adds Sam.
Over the past two years, Sam and his team have been working hard to remodel the shop so that its function and performance could be optimized. Only recently, they made the major decision to align with ProColor Collision.
As part of the remodeling, the team carried out major upgrades, including the installation of a new frame rack and laser measuring system from Car-O-Liner and a new downdraft spray booth from SAIMA. They also invested in improving the flow of the shop and breaking down walls to increase productivity.
“Sam has closely witnessed how the region’s automotive industry has evolved over the past decades and remains just as curious even today to learn new technologies and processes,” said Daryll O’Keefe, Regional Vice President-Ontario for Fix Network.
