Aviva Canada to Expand its Premiere Auto Network

18 July, 2008 – Aviva Canada is pleased to announce the expansion of its Premiere Auto Network through the addition of preferred part and paint partnerships. The Premiere Auto Network is a group of Aviva Canada approved auto collision centres that provide top-tier service to Aviva customers. The addition of the part and paint partnerships will allow the network to further improve the timeliness and quality of service to consumers.

Paint supplier Akzo Nobel and auto part supplier Advantage Data Systems are two of the new additions to the program. A pilot program testing the parts component launches this July with select auto collision centres in Ontario and Quebec.

“Our partners will have the opportunity to work with industry-leading top quality brands that provide competitive pricing, exceptional delivery with great service, along with access to the latest in technical support and innovation in product lines,” said Mauro Convertini, Vice President, Procurement, Aviva Canada. “This will enable our Premiere Auto Network to deliver improved repair quality and service to our customers.”

Additional information on the program launch will be announced in the weeks to come.

Improving repair quality and timeliness are further examples of Aviva Canada’s commitment to change insurance. For more information on our mission to change insurance, visit changeinsurance.ca.
