Marshall Auto Body has been working with aluminum for over 25 years. With a background in light aircraft refinishing and sub assembly repairs as well as aluminum sheet metal work, we are well positioned and experienced in working with light weight automotive aluminum body panels and structure. Today, we use the same Fronius cold metal transfer welder that Tesla's are built with and have over 200 hours of factory training in aluminum structural/mechanical and welding at Tesla's Fremont, CA facility. Most body shops have less experience with differences in how aluminum springs back from impacts compared with steel. Aluminum has a very poor memory and can resists straightening attempts so our experience really pays dividends here. With over 46 years of combined experience and training in structural aluminum repair and welding, our technicians meet all the requirements through ongoing certification and training. Marshall Auto Body is the only authorized Tesla Motors repair facility in Wisconsin and the first of four shops in the United States invited to participate in a two week certification program by Tesla Motors at the Palo Alto, California facility. Recognized by the Assured Performance Network as one of the first ‘certified’ repair facilities in Southeastern Wisconsin for the all-aluminum F-150. The 2015 model will reduce the truck’s weight by 700 pounds from the 2014 model, improving fuel economy and allowing for a small displacement engine.
