AASP/NJ to Host Meetings on Aluminum Repair
Sept. 16, 2015—The Alliance of Automotive Service Providers of New Jersey (AASP/NJ) will host two meetings in September on aluminum repair. The meetings, available exclusively to AASP/NJ members, will be held Sept. 24 and Sept. 29 at 7 p.m. at Reliable Automotive Equipment in Belford, N.J.
Reliable Automotive Equipment Inc.’s Dave Gruskos will discuss what the future of the industry holds with the rapidly changing materials being used.
“The association is always working to inform the local industry about topics that are important to our day-to-day business,” said Jeff McDowell, AASP/NJ president. “Aluminum and its impact on how we as repairers work has been the dominant issue for over a year now, and a lot of people are having trouble finding the answers to their questions. By holding these meetings, we hope to get the confusion out of the air so we can move forward in the automotive repair field in New Jersey.”
“Everyone is wondering where the industry is headed,” said Charles Bryant, AASP/NJ executive director Charles Bryant. “It’s similar to what happened when cars changed over to unibody. It was completely different than what was seen before, but we as an industry got through it. With aluminum, it was just timely to bring the information to those who need it so that we can progress.”
After the presentation there will be a brief question and answer segment.
