(Oldsmar, FL) Dimmitt Automotive Group is introducing the entire west coast of Florida to a high-tech concept in auto body repair. On June 4, 2018, the group will open the 40,000-square-foot Dimmitt Certified Collision Center, a state-of-the-art auto body shop that will devote much of its focus on the tricky business of repairing aluminum luxury vehicles.
The Dimmitt Certified Collision Center will be located at 240 Vollmer Avenue in Oldsmar, FL. “We are a fully certified aluminum repair center for Audi, Land Rover, Jaguar, Bentley, McLaren, Rolls Royce, Tesla and Cadillac CT6,” says Harry Blackledge, Manager of the Dimmitt Certified Collision Center.
The use of aluminum auto body panels and even suspension parts in vehicles has been increasing steadily, especially in the last decade. Aluminum is lighter, which helps improve fuel economy. Aluminum also performs as well as steel when it comes to crashes and scratches. But repairing aluminum requires special training, something few auto body technicians have achieved.
That’s where the Dimmitt Certified Collision Center is different. “Our collision center is ICAR Gold Certified and our repair technicians are ICAR Platinum and Manufacturer Certified,” Blackledge says. Dimmitt’s highly trained staff is just as adept at the body, paint, alignment and collision repair of steel vehicles, enabling the collision center to serve clients with vehicles across all makes and models.
Equally exciting is the Dimmitt Certified Collision Center’s state-of-the-art equipment, which includes:
· Two Car O Liner and two Car Bench frame alignment machines, which are new universal systems for anchoring, measuring and holding vehicles in every configuration imaginable.
· A Super Rotax, a high performance structure that cradles a vehicle with locking crossbeams so technicians can lift it into the air for unlimited access.
· Accudraft Titan Paint Booths, which use a 15 H.P. 1.5 Million BTU direct fire heating system with 20,000 CFM to deliver the airflow and heat specifications recommended by waterborne paint manufacturers.
The sum total: a powerhouse in precision collision repair, able to return any vehicle to pre-incident condition or better. That’s paired with Dimmitt’s famous concierge service and exquisite attention to detail.
The Dimmitt Certified Collision Center will be open Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and on Saturdays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
