It is generally agreed that the Paintless Dent Repair process was originally developed in Germany by Mercedes-Benz in the mid 1980's. Factory assembly line technicians were confronted with the problem of dents and dings associated with line accidents such as dropping a tool on the finished product. Specialized tools were developed, designed to repair these types of dents without damaging the existing factory finish.
Over time the process made its way out of the factory and became available to individuals for use in the automotive industry. Once the procedure became introduced to America, it became an effective alternative to traditional body shop methods.
