Allston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/22/2016 -- Providing over 75 years of combined experience in auto and body repair services throughout the Boston, Massachusetts area. An award winning automotive repair company, Allston Collision Center, recently announced the addition of a new service to their list of auto body repair shop's skillset. The company is now well-equipped to provide area residents with aluminum auto body repairs with their new MultiTool Aluminum Repair Station. The recently acquired tool will allow Allston Collision Center to provide expert aluminum body repair services as more automotive manufacturers increase aluminum usage.
"Our technicians routinely receive training and attend extended education classes to help Allston Collision Center stay abreast of advancements in the automotive and collision repair industry," said Elaine O'Neill co- owner of the company. "By acquiring the Multitool Aluminum Repair Station, it allows us to extend our repair services and assist more people throughout Boston with their body repair needs. Many manufacturers today are building vehicles using aluminum in both their body work as well as mechanical components," she adds. The rate of aluminum usage by automotive manufacturers is at an all-time high.
"Manufacturers use aluminum in their mass marketed vehicles because it is lightweight. Lighter vehicles have been proven to be more efficient in fuel consumption and speed," says Ms. O'Neill.
What many consumers may not realize, is that repairing automotive aluminum bodies is significantly more difficult than repairing steel bodies. Steel maintains a certain level of "memory," which means it's easier to reshape and reform back to its original condition. Aluminum does not have the same capability. Despite this drawback, dozens of automotive manufacturers including Mercedes Benz, Tesla, and Ford continue to use aluminum body designs.
