Corwin Collision Center Achieves Gold Class Status

The Collision Repair Industry’s Highest Training Recognition

Corwin Collision Center today announced its achievement of Gold Class status, the industry standard for training that contributes to complete and safe repairs. Only 10 percent of collision repair businesses currently meet the rigorous training requirements necessary to earn the Gold Class designation.

Gold Class shops are required to have every technician involved in collision repair take training that is specific to their roles. They must continue with ongoing training each year for the business to maintain its Gold Class recognition, including classes in new technology.

Today’s vehicles are increasingly sophisticated devices featuring an ever-growing number of components, parts and advanced lightweight materials. The constant introduction of new vehicle technologies can result in repair procedures changing significantly from year to year, making current repair knowledge critical for the achievement of complete, safe and quality repairs.

“Corwin Collision Center is honored to be a named a Gold Class collision repair facility,” said Vic Peterson, General Manager of Corwin Collision Center. “We are proud of our commitment to training because it is also a symbol of our commitment to professionalism and to the safety of our customers.”

“The Corwin Collision Center brings a whole new level of auto body repair technology and customer service to Fargo-Moorhead,” says Victor Peterson, General Manager.

Construction on the building began in late 2015, with the facility opening this past summer. Olaf Anderson Construction was the general contractor. The building was built from the ground up to be the premiere auto body repair facility in the region.

Along with collision repair and auto painting, the facility also features the most advanced laser frame straightening system in the region. The Eclipse Laser Measuring System results are so accurate that they’re more precise than factory specifications.

The Corwin Automotive Group was founded in Bismarck, ND in 1914 and is one of the few 4th generation family-owned dealership groups in the nation. The company has dealerships located throughout the Central and Western States including North Dakota, Missouri, Montana, Idaho, Nebraska and Washington.
