St. Claude Autobody has recently met all requirements set forth by the Ford Aluminum Collision Repair Program and MPI in order to properly repair the new aluminum for Ford trucks.

St. Claude Autobody has made the investment in training and in equipment that includes an Aluminum MIG Welder, Aluminum Dent-Pulling tools, Fume Extraction tools, Dust Collection Systems, Aluminum Riveting tools and Work Area Separation Systems. This equipment is not only necessary to complete the repairs but is instrumental in ensuring that technician health and safety continues to exceed industry standards here at St. Claude Autobody. 

Although MPI has not mandated that having this equipment is necessary to be an accredited facility, they have made a commitment in insuring that vehicles built with complex materials only be repaired at facilities that are properly equipped to do so.

Available on MPI's website is a list of shops that are qualified to complete repairs to vehicles using complex materials. Click on the link below to see the listing.
