Certified Aluminum Repair Facility
Use of Aluminum is on the rise in the auto industry. Its an excellent alternative to using steel as it is lighter but still provides strength and durability.
Mainstream auto manufacturers have used aluminum in the construction of vehicles for a number of years. However, many of the panels on cars and trucks are made from steel. The new Ford F-150 will be made of nearly 95% aluminum and more car manufacturers are beginning to invest in aluminum auto body.
Many auto body shops are not prepared for aluminum body vehicles. According to Tony Victoria of Auto Service Auto Body, located in North Kingstown, Rhode Island “Not every shop in Rhode Island will be equipped to repair the new aluminum Ford F-150”.
