1940

In the 1940's Mercedes and BMW developed a Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) system to repair small dents created during the manufacturing process. Although PDR disappeared in the factories with manufacturing improvements, it has made a strong comeback due to dealership demand. During the mid 1980's entrepreneurs embraced this PDR system and reintroduced the method to the commercial market place. The paintless dent removal system was introduced to Canada by U.S. firms running dent techs into hail stricken areas. These "hail chasers" introduced their methods to interested individuals who set up companies of their own to offer Canadians PDR services. Although well established in the United States, PDR is starting to blossom in the Canadian market. Paintless dent removal is the favorite repair methods of insurance companies and car manufacturers alike.
