Aluminum Qualified Repairs
Craftsman Collision is pleased to announce we are qualified to repair all aluminum vehicles including Ford, Mazda, Range Rover, Tesla and many other vehicles that have the new technologically advanced aluminum bodies. We are a Ford Recognized Collision Care Provider. As a recognized independent body shop we will ensure that your Ford is repaired properly and meets Ford’s stringent safety standards for your vehicle. This is especially critical with the introduction of the new radically redesigned 2015 F150, built with an innovative, high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body.
Society’s need to reduce carbon pollution by improving fuel economy has some manufacturers turning to lightweight aluminum – a prime example being the 2015 Ford F-150 pickup. But repairing aluminum takes special tools and training, and the aluminum tools have to be kept separate from conventional tools to prevent rust-causing cross-contamination. Craftsman is staying ahead of the new aluminum technology and have installed a dedicated aluminum repair area to ensure your aluminum vehicle is repaired to the highest standards possible.

Saying Greg Bannister knows cars is like saying Roger Ebert knows movies. The new manager of our West Kelowna location has worked in virtually every aspect of collision repair: as autobody technician, estimator, advisor and manager. On the government side, he has been employed by both Vancouver City and ICBC. Vast knowledge and experience amassed in 37 years working in collision repair and insurance give him a big edge when it comes to managing employees and customers.
Also making him an excellent shop manager are his innate mechanical aptitude and his eight years experience as a body tech. Not that he keeps all his knowledge under his hat.
“I’m most passionate about helping others get ahead in this industry by sharing information,” he says.
Greg also has a well-deserved reputation for dealing with difficult customers and employees, turning precarious plots into storybook endings. We’re delighted to have a man of his calibre at the helm.
