The Future of Autobody Repair for the Next Generation of Vehicles

The autobody shop of today has had to evolve with the rapid advancements of the car industry. Computerization introduced a host of new disciplines that autobody technicians need to master. 

From relatively straightforward knowledge of the car’s structural systems, the modern autobody shop has had to become a sophisticated electrical, technological and mechanical centre, certified to repair very complex vehicles and restore cars to their pre-collision state. This ever-changing environment means that autobody shops have to be certified in electrical systems, and new safety systems in the ever-growing Electric Vehicle segment.

 Numerous auto manufacturers and technology firms are racing to be the first to market a self-driving car. With rapid technological advancements in the automotive industry comes a continued to push demand for greater collision repair skills. When these new cars are involved in an accident, making the right choice for the collision repair becomes a critical decision for the consumer.

 If you own a recent model automobile that needs collision repair, look for a facility that has invested in specific learning that is certified by the car companies.  Mitek technicians undergo continued education to keep up with the new technologies. Hands-on exposure to the many new software and electrical components as well as structural advances is part of our commitment to being the leader in autobody repair in our trade area.

 Our aim as always is to deliver greater convenience and a more personalized experience for our clients by being at the forefront of this car evolution.
