Madison, Ind. – Chief Automotive Technologies, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of vehicle frame-pulling equipment, computerized measuring systems and frame specifications, invites the collision repair industry to help celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2012. The “Show Us Your Chief Equipment” campaign asks Chief fans to post photos and stories about their Chief equipment to the company’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/
“We are proud of the role that Chief equipment has played in helping thousands of collision repair technicians properly repair vehicles so their owners can get back on the road with confidence,” says Mike Cranfill, vice president of collision. “I can’t tell you how often I’m visiting customers with one of our distributors when we come across an old Chief EZ Liner frame rack still in use after 30 years or more. And while we love to sell new equipment, it’s really gratifying to witness the reliability and longevity of the machines we’ve been making for 40 years. That’s why we’re asking shop owners, technicians, and estimators to show us the Chief equipment they rely on every day.”
Show off your Chief equipment and enter the weekly drawing for anniversary merchandise by posting a photo or story about your Chief frame rack, measuring system, accessories, training or support to Chief’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/
Enter to win the grand prize drawing of a trip for two to the 2012 SEMA Show by filling out the entry form on Chief’s Facebook page through Sept. 25. Facebook fans who post photos to the Chief page also receive bonus entries into the SEMA anniversary giveaway. Chief will cap off its anniversary year with a media event at SEMA. The giveaway winner will be invited to the press conference in addition to having several days to explore all the coolest cars, accessories and customization equipment the industry has to offer.
