`Col­li­sion Street’

The new ‘Col­li­sion Dam­age Re­pair Street’ will sup­ple­ment the ‘Col­li­sion Talk’ this year. In 2014, ‘Col­li­sion Talk’ was the best at­tended event of the lec­ture pro­gramme. As be­fore, it will be held in the Por­tal­haus build­ing, which ad­joins Hall 11 where ev­ery­thing re­volves around the world of body­work and paint­work dur­ing Au­tomechanika.

At the ‘Col­li­sion Dam­age Re­pair Street’ 14 work­shop equip­ment sup­pli­ers, paint man­u­fac­tur­ers and col­li­sion-dam­age ser­vice providers will show process-op­ti­mi­sa­tion so­lu­tions. “We are de­lighted with the ex­pan­sion of the suc­cess­ful event con­cept this year,” Olaf Mußhoff, Di­rec­tor of Au­tomechanika Frank­furt, said.

“This en­ables us to strengthen Au­tomechanika as the meet­ing place for com­pa­nies and de­ci­sion­mak­ers from the col­li­sion-dam­age mar­ket and show so­lu­tions for process op­ti­mi­sa­tion in the work­shop,” he said.

Greatly an­tic­i­pated is the 2nd ‘Col­li­sion Talk’, which will once again fo­cus on is­sues of top­i­cal im­por­tance to the col­li­sion­dam­age re­pair sec­tor. The fresh and very bold for­mat, an idea of trade jour­nal­ists Chris­tian Sim­mert and Wolf­gang Auer, at­tracted great in­ter­est on the part of body­work re­pair spe­cial­ists and work­shops at the last Au­tomechanika.

The top­ics to be dis­cussed with lead­ing de­ci­sion-mak­ers from the in­sur­ance and col­li­sion­dam­age man­age­ment sec­tors, as well as the trade as­so­ci­a­tions, in­clude in­voice de­duc­tions, price dump­ing through flat-rate of­fers, au­to­mo­bile ser­vice and the in­creas­ing com­pe­ti­tion.

The Talk guests are: Ger­hard Witte (Control Ex­pert), Thomas Melzer (Ax­alta Coat­ing Systems), Thomas Geck (HUK-COBURG), St­ef­fen Struwe (In­no­va­tion Group), Ste­fan Artz (Ser­vice Part­ner­net­zw­erk) and ZKF Pres­i­dent Peter Börner.
