Federal Auto Cars recently became the first Volvo dealer to be certified as the Volvo Certified Damage Repair (VCDR) centre by Volvo Car Malaysia. The Federal Auto B&P facility is located in Glenmarie, and it was officiated by Mr Charles Frump, Managing Director of Volvo Car Malaysia, on the 7th September 2022.
With this certification, it will ensure the dealership employs the highest quality and standards in repairing Volvo vehicles with modern technology, equipment, processes and well trained personnel. The certification will also ensure that the equipment and processes will provide the most efficient and precise repair, while still emphasizing sustainability and reducing the emission of microscopic particles and energy consumption.
This new facility was designed in partnership between Volvo Car Corporation and Federal Auto Cars, and it was designed to provide the maximum efficiency. The new facility was built-up on a total area of 10,586 sq ft, and it will be equipped with the best solutions for spray booths, vehicle alignment, welding, as well as premium paint finish.
The B&P facility also come with a state of the art PIVAB spray booth, which is designed to optimise the heated air flow using automatic controls and monitoring system. The spray booth is controlled with a 15’’ LCD screen, and it will be run by a web-based operating system that can contribute to climate sustainability.
Federal Auto Cars’ VCDR also uses the approved Glasurit water-based paint for all the repairs. The move from conventional solvent-based paint to water-based paint not only maintains a high, if not higher, aesthetic outcome and reduces the exposure of their employees to chemicals but it also reduces the emission of microscopic particles to the environment, all while maintaining the superior finishing to the body of Volvo vehicles.
Federal Auto Cars will also use the newest Car-O-Liner system, which meets Volvo’s standards on repair quality. This system has the anchoring and holding system together with the electronic measuring system to repair all type of Volvo vehicle. There are also an array of special tools that Federal Auto has invested to perform any body or mechanical repairs on Volvo cars.
The VCDR Centre is located within its flagship Federal Auto Cars Glenmarie outlet. Customers will enjoy peace of mind whether it is servicing or structural/body repair works for their Volvo.
