Commission refers case against auto body repairers

6 Jul 2015 1 min read Competition Matters Article

The Competition Commission has referred a case of price fixing, market division and collusive tendering against Eldan Auto Body CC (Eldan) and Precision & Sons Proprietary Limited (Precision). Eldan and Precision are both certified auto body repairers for Mercedes Benz and also do auto body repair to other makes of vehicles.

The referral follows an investigation by the Commission, which included a dawn raid at the offices of these firms (and one other) in July 2014. The Commission concluded that Eldan and Precision colluded from at least 2011 in respect of the provision of auto body repair services.
