Oakland Auto Body’s commitment to our shared environment
Auto body repairs entail a number of processes and conditions that can negatively impact our environment, especially if done without the proper materials and training, processes, or equipment. We thought you’d be interested in the lengths we’ve gone to in order to minimize our impact on the environment.
Oakland Auto Body uses the latest water-based refinish technology. (We use PPG’s Aquabase Refinish System.) That means that we have substantially reduced the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that impact air, soil, and water. Not only is this a “win” for the environment, but it also produces a safer and more pleasant work environment for our staff.
We use low-pollution refrigerants and coolants in our repairs and recycle them wherever possible. We also send many of the damaged parts and fluids we remove from vehicles, as well as the protective packaging the new parts come in, to recycling facilities.

It was many years ago that we first focused on equipment that reduced the impact of auto body repair on the environment. From ventilated and triple-filtered refinish cabins to high-transfer paint guns to refrigerant recyclers, Oakland Auto Body has been a pioneer in making technology work harder and more efficiently to reduce pollution.
As a company, we pledge our best effort to continue to be responsible citizens on this planet and to be leaders in the initiative to pass on to our children an environment that is sustainable.
