Equipment and Services Filco Inc. is proud to be part of an exciting Training Facility collaboration between two giants, the Canadian Welding Bureau (CWB) & Volkswagen Canada. Our long experience in the collision repair and body shop industry as equipment distributor allowed us to be selected as one of the main suppliers for the OEM Collision Repair Training Center.
Filco’s superior-quality, OEM approved welding equipment will be available at the OEM Collision Repair Training Center located at the CWB Group facility in Milton, Ontario
The dedicated OEM Collision Repair Training Center not only aims to serve Audi and Volkswagen but also to:
1. Improve the competency of repair technicians, including welding certification.
2. Organize events with Skills Canada to attract youth to the trade.
3. Support Women’s Industry Network to attract women to the collision repair industry.
4. [Provide] industry education sessions on safe and proper repair—including sessions for insurance companies, repairers, and government.
“The vision for creating this training center results from the participation and hard work of numerous stakeholders: Volkswagen Group Canada, the CWB Group, equipment manufacturers and distributors. The facility will allow Volkswagen and Audi to deliver body repair training to support safe and proper repair techniques according to factory guidelines.” State[s] Scott Wideman, Collision Program Manager at Volkswagen Group Canada.
Filco commits to supply the collision and body shop industry with the latest technology and high-quality equipment in order to develop this industry and to empower the technicians with the necessary skills to excel in their field.
