On Nov. 14, AASP-MO’s Gateway Collision Chapter held a meeting at Automotive Technology, Inc. (ATI). The meeting kicked off its annual Toys for Tots toy drive and provided valuable information on the new R1234YF freon implementation.


According to AASP-MO Executive Director Ron Reiling, “We had a good turnout for the meeting, despite the threat of a snowstorm. Doug Slattery, Toys for Tots chairman, kicked off the toy drive.”


Joe Barton delivered a presentation on the Robinair R1234YF A/C machine and the new R1234YF Freon implementation, which Reiling called “particularly interesting.” ATI’s Steve Lange explained the benefits of the equipment as well as its ease of use.


Reiling shared, “Body shops should consider the Robinair AC1234-6 as a time-and-resource-saving investment. ATI and AASP-Missouri will be conducting a section 609 certification class, which includes the certification exam that is a requirement to purchase 2lb cylinders or more and to service A/C systems on vehicles with R1234YF.


“Word on the street is that AASP-Missouri's Gateway Collision Chapter has a great line-up of informational meetings coming in 2019!”


AASP-MO will hold its Toys for Tots Social on Dec. 12 at Syberg’s Dorsett, and the first meeting of the new year will be held on Jan. 9.
