Laneys Collision Center, 916 E. Hillsboro in El Dorado, announced it is now a member of the Kia Recognized Collision Repair Facility Program, which launched nationwide Oct. 27 through a partnership with the Assured Performance Network.
Laneys Collision Center is one of the first shops in the U.S. to participate in the new program.
The certification provides Kia owners in south Arkansas with the assurance that Laneys Collision Center is properly equipped and its staff is properly trained to restore collision damage to Kia automobiles.
Kia becomes the seventh automobile manufacturer to recognize Laneys Collision Center as certified to properly repair the vehicles they manufacture, joining FCA (Chrysler), Ford Motor Company, General Motors, Honda/Acura, Hyundai and Nissan/Infiniti.
“The cars being manufactured today are far more advanced than they were just a few short years ago,” said Laneys Collision Center co-owner Lane Griffin. “Just like your smartphone, your car has changed quite a bit. We are dedicated to keeping our company and our staff current with technology so we are able to properly repair the vehicles of today and tomorrow.”
