We look forward to that formula providing for a very exciting future together.” 

Autometric Collision, through its network of nine high-quality collision repair centers, provides the capacity to repair 1,500 vehicles per month. In addition to boasting a reputation for the highest-quality repairs in the market, Autometric also built longtime trusted partnerships with several Detroit dealerships including Mercedes, Audi, BMW and Porsche.
