Cars are in our Nature
At Gillibrand Accident Repair Centre, we do more than respect nature – we do everything we can to preserve it.
We have followed the path of environmental protection by making environmental responsibility part of our code of ethics. Our goals? Integrate environmental conservation into our relations with our suppliers, design our activities to respect the vehicle’s life cycle and adapt the organization to sustainable development. These concerns are translated into concrete actions, waste recovery, recycling of raw materials and environmental paint. All the stakeholders have integrated these responsible actions into their methods.

Gillibrand Accident Repair Centre adheres to programs for the recycling of parts and materials.
