CPK McLaren MotorBody is a 2018 Finalist in the Victorian Automobile Chamber of Commerce VACC Industry Awards.
The Leongatha-based business was also back to back finalists in 2016 and 2017.
CPK McLaren MotorBody, at its refurbished and expended facility at 17-19 Roughead Street, is a finalist in the Best Body Repairer – Passenger Vehicle – Large Business Category.
It is the only vehicle body repairer to become a 2018 finalist in Gippsland and one of only five regional finalist body repairers statewide.
CPK McLaren MotorBody’s full time staff are all highly qualified refinish technicians/spray painters and panel beaters, and hold many advanced I-Car Australia certificates and accreditations, as well as small business management certification.
Vehicle safety, value and integrity is never compromised with unfair, unreasonable, mediocre quick fix alternatives.
“Repairs are carried out utilising manufacturers’ factory repair procedures, ensuring all vehicles are reinstated to correct specifications,” Craig McLaren said.
“We utilise the latest diagnostic, fault discovery and safety restraint system equipment.
“We only use world class environmentally responsible Glasurit 90 Line automotive refinishing technologies with all current and advanced refinish equipment.
“We use only new genuine, Australian delivered and complied vehicle parts. We only fit genuine car glass.”
You may have noticed quite a difference in the appearance of the premises in the past 12 months as the business transforms into a state of the art facility.
“We are now in our final stage,” Craig said.
“It’s been an organisational triumph with new building works taking place now for many months and work flow not hindered during this process; testament to incredible professional project management by Lumel Pty Ltd, and our very organised hard-working staff.
“We are very proud of our achievements and growth as we continue to provide outstanding motor vehicle body repair excellence.”
The award nomination comes in a special year for VACC marking its 100th Year Anniversary.
VACC executive director, Geoff Gwilym said the VACC Industry Awards demonstrated members’ commitment to quality.
“Finalists were shortlisted from a record 276 entries – the cream has risen to the top in 2018.
“These finalists are the best in the Victorian automotive industry,” he said.
“VACC was overwhelmed by the number of entries received from all over Victoria this year.”
Ten expert judges evaluated entries based on customer service, professional and technical development, industry improvement, and environmental and occupational health and safety.
An independent standards representative then audited the judging.
Winners will be announced on Saturday, June 23 at the special and most prestigious Black Tie Gala Presentation Evening to be held at Crown Palladium, Melbourne; where 28 award categories and 50 awards will be presented to VACC member finalists who will be recognised for their outstanding achievements.
