History of Paintless Dent Removal
Paintless Dent Removal (PDR) was established in the 1940’s on the assembly lines of Mercedes Benz in Stuttgart Germany to remove small dings created during the manufacturing process. These technicians were commonly referred to as “ding men” and would use special tools to gently massage the dents to perfection by working the metal from the inside out.
In the early 1980’s, Paintless Dent Removal found its way into the Midwest region of the United States by an Argentinean body man who became frustrated with having to fill and paint small dings and dents utilizing traditional body shop techniques.
Today, the Paintless Dent Removal industry has developed into a multi-million dollar industry and is recognized by all major insurance companies and auto dealerships as the preferred method of removal for dings, dents and hail.
