Repairify has appointed Ben Johnson vice president of General Automotive Repair Markets. Johnson brings decades of experience and leadership in the collision and repair industry and will lead strategic growth and product development initiatives for asTech Mechanical.

Johnson started as an automotive technician in 1979 and worked in multiple positions with SPX, the Auto Care Association (ACA), Delphi, ALLDATA, and Mitchell 1 before joining Repairify. He still maintains several ASE certifications as well as his membership with the Society of Automotive Engineers International and the ACA's Tool & Equipment and Emerging Technologies committees. 

“Ben brings a wealth of talent and knowledge, so we’re thrilled to have him join our team,” President of asTech Craig Edmonds said. “He’s been transformative everywhere he’s been. And as we expand this line of business, we have no doubt he’ll have those same results leading business development and product management for asTech Mechanical.”

asTech Mechanical will focus on improving Repairify's remote technology and increasing support for technicians remotely connecting to asTech's OEM tools. This access allows technicians to perform vehicle health checks, programming, and calibrations without buying the OEM tool typically required. The technology will be available on asTech and other third-party diagnostic devices starting May 20.

“The increasing complexity of vehicles means there is an increasing need for repairs to be completed using functionality exclusive to OEM tools,” Johnson said. “Making these OEM tools easier to access will help more shops across our industry complete all repairs properly. That’s why I’m so excited to help Repairify expand their patented remote OEM solutions, which have made them a leader in the collision space, into the mechanical industry as well.”
