About CDE Collision Damage Experts in Hammond, Indiana
Chuck Freiberg, owner and CEO, wanted to open a facility where customers walked in and said, “This is a body shop?” That goal was defiantly accomplished. CDE Collision Damage Experts expanded to Hammond Indiana in 2009, being the first location that wasn’t in the Chicagoland area, and updated its image.
The company featured a new logo, colors, and interior and exterior design. This look was the new standard for expansion within the company. All the locations were converted to Waterborne Paint, Downdraft Spray Booths, and top of the line equipment. Construction and renovation is working its way through each location as a result of this stunning facility.
CDE Collision Damage Experts in Hammond is on Indianapolis Blvd, two blocks North of I80-94.
