Wantage, NJ, Collision Repair Shop Gains Training Recognition


Town II Auto Body & Towing recently announced its achievement of Gold Class status, the industry standard for training that contributes to complete and safe repairs.


Only 10 percent of collision repair businesses currently meet the rigorous training requirements necessary to earn the Gold Class designation, according to I-CAR, a not-for-profit training organization.


The Gold Class designation is awarded by I-CAR, which is dedicated to improving the quality and safety of auto collision repair for the ultimate benefit of consumers.


Town II Auto Body & Towing is located at 97 State Route 23 in Wantage, NJ, just north of Hamburg. The business was established by Joseph Pastore in 1956 in Montclair. Town II is run by his son, Tom, and his wife, Tammy.


Gold Class shops are required to have every technician involved in collision repair take training that is specific to their roles. They must continue with ongoing training each year for the business to maintain its Gold Class recognition, including classes in new technology.


Today's vehicles are increasingly sophisticated devices featuring an ever-growing number of components, parts and advanced lightweight materials. The constant introduction of new vehicle technologies can result in repair procedures changing significantly from year to year, making current repair knowledge critical for the achievement of complete, safe and quality repairs.


"Town II Auto Body & Towing is honored to be a named a Gold Class collision repair facility,"  Tom Pastore said. "We are proud of our commitment to training because it is a symbol of our commitment to professionalism and to the safety of our customers."
