Cryns has been guaranteeing qualitative damage repair since 1944. It is in our DNA to search continuously for the latest repair techniques and to offer a fast no-nonsense service.
Craftsmanship is a common thread within our organization. Our Modern Craftsmen deliver craft, using the most modern techniques. We are in continuous dialogue with our partners to keep refining them. Quality labels such as Eurogarant, Sustainable Repair and Long Life Repair endorse our services.
We go for a smooth handling in all comfort. That is why our entire administration goes digital to help you quickly and accurately. You stay mobile thanks to our very good and comfortable replacement vehicles.
We offer tailor-made solutions for both private individuals and professional fleets (leasing companies, corporate fleets).
Our trump cards:
The history of Cryns dates back to 1944, when Louis Cryns established the first branch in the Zwaardstraat in Antwerp. Louis Cryns and his brother Henry generated the first rapid growth of the bodywork, which soon made the first building too small. As a result, they decided to open a second branch.
In 2011 Johan Van Deursen took over Cryns Bodywork Centre from Ronald Cryns. He was able to build upon the already acquired strong reputation of Cryns in Antwerp. Van Deursen strengthened Cryns' growth strategy through thorough digitization and further acquisitions. For example, Cryns not only offers its well-known quality for private individuals, we also offer a strong solution for professional fleets.
In 2016, the Damage network was established to unite more than 20 repairers with the same vision.
In 2020, Cryns joined the German IRS (Intelligent Repair Solutions) Group, which provides additional support in terms of expansion and development regarding our repair techniques. More information is available on their website.
Every stakeholder within every domain of bodywork needs to be continuously monitored and evaluated. For each market segment, we must fulfil exactly those requirements and wishes that are necessary to achieve complete satisfaction of each party involved.
Cryns by Damage continuously works on its quality policy and meets all quality standards required within the industry. For example, it has the Eurogarant label, which is a renowned quality label within the bodywork sector.
Cryns by Damage has also been awarded with several other labels. We opt for sustainable repairs by limiting waste, replacing fewer parts and using sustainable products.
For each repair we measure customer satisfaction. This feedback will help us to keep continuously working on a maximum customer satisfaction. Cryns achieves a score of 9 out of 10.
