At Dittmer Collision Repair, we are panel beaters - Palmerston North, and your one-stop panel and paint shop.
You can trust our qualified panel beaters and apprentices to repair your vehicle safely, efficiently and professionally.
We're equipped to perform chassis realignment on a wide range of vehicles, with nine chassis straightening machines in our Palmerston North workshop. We have four Blackhawk Benches, a Blackhawk Genie and four Mark 5/Mark6 Car-o-liners, with commercial kit specially designed for the repair of light commercial vehicles.
We measure all structural repairs using the latest computerised 3D laser technology: the Blackhawk SHARK.
Our measuring system ensures that all repairs fall within the manufacturers specifications. When repairs are complete, the system delivers a comprehensive printed report detailing the initial state of the damaged vehicle, and its final state, including a comparison with the manufacturer's dimensions.
We have a full range of M.I.G. and spot welders to reproduce manufacturer's weld patterns.
We have top quality professional spray painting facilities, and our well-stocked tinting room allows us to mix colours and match paints on-site. We can take on a range of painting jobs, from touching up scratched vehicle panels and fixing vinyl sign writing to complete vehicle sandblast and respray.
The refinishing of your vehicle is carried out by qualified tradesmen, trained in using Glasurit waterborne baked enamel, Europe's finest automotive paint. We use a modern Seetal full down draft heated spray booth and low bake oven for all refinishing.
