Craftsman Collision Grows Again

“Nothing on the market compares to it for speed, accuracy and ease of operation,” says Bill Hatswell, the new owner and President of Wedge Clamp Systems Inc.,  manufacturer of an innovative, lightweight and economical autobody repair system.

“We’ve been exclusive users of the Wedge Clamp System since it was introduced,” says Hatswell, whose 36-shop Craftsman Collision is the largest privately held bodyshop chain in North America.

Wedge Clamp is also the worldwide distributor of NitroHeat, a spray painting system that replaces air with heated nitrogen that is said to dramatically reduce paint consumption and drying times while delivering a more lustrous and durable finish.

The purchase is also good news for Craftsman customers, says Hatswell.

“As an industry leader committed to having the best technology, we know that both Wedge Clamp and NitroHeat add to our advantage over other shops in terms of repair quality and vehicle finish.”
