Suzuki GB is introducing a body and paint programme to build a network of approved bodyshops where all vehicles are repaired according to Suzuki recommended repair processes.
All sites are nominated by Suzuki franchised dealers in the UK upon the adherence to criteria demanded by the Japanese manufacturer.
In addition, Suzuki OEM replacement parts will be promoted and only Suzuki GB selected paint brands, namely Akzo Sikkens, Glasurit, RM, or Standox, employed at Suzuki production facilities, have been approved.
The body and paint programme will be operational in early April following the completion of assessments by Suzuki and will be rolled out to 122 approved bodyshops in total.
The scheme is being supported for the network by the Oxford Automotive Group, the aftermarket resource specialists.
Denis Houston, director of aftersales for Suzuki GB, said: “We recognised the importance of unveiling the body and paint programme to ensure stricter quality control within the repair network.
“In the future, the scheme will enable a closer relationship between dealers, repairers and motorists which is of great benefit to all parties.”
