"High-strength steels, novel materials, aluminum and OEM proprietary manufacturing processes are bringing a groundbreaking change to the collision repair industry," says Bob Holland, director of collision in North and South America for Chief parent company Vehicle Service Group. "We have worked hand-in-hand with the OEMs to develop several new products that can help collision repair technicians repair today's vehicles and those in development. The NADA Expo also presents an excellent opportunity for Chief personnel to obtain valuable feedback from dealers about their business and equipment needs. To encourage dealer interaction, we are offering some of our most aggressive deals during the show." 

For the first time at the NADA Expo, Chief will showcase the bench solutions available through its new North American "Globaljig Presented by Chief" brand. The drive-over Koala straightening bench with center-section holding will be featured in the booth. This bench is suitable for a wide range of collision repair situations, from a quick pull to structural parts replacement. The bench's small footprint adds to its versatility.

The Chief exhibit is dealers' one-stop-shop to see OEM-approved aluminum repair equipment. State-of-the-art double-pulse welding, aluminum dust and fume extraction, and riveting technology will be on display. Chief will also show its structural holding and frame-measuring equipment in its NADA booth.

Chief will offer several show specials — stop by the booth to learn more. NADA Expo attendees can also see Chief products and talk with company representatives in the FCA U.S. LLC (#5314N), General Motors LLC (#2529C) and Bosch Automotive Service Solutions (#1500C) booths on the trade show floor.
