Ivan Collins

While Ivan was getting his mechanical engineering degree from North Carolina State University he started as a technician at Accident Reconstruction Analysis in 2005. As a member of the racecar team at NC State he was set on getting into the racing industry but was lured to ARA by a fellow teammate, who was a technician at the time at ARA, that mentioned they were going to “blow a car up” at work! Over 12 years later Ivan, is now a partner at the company and still enjoys testing things to the limit.

Ivan specializes in failure analysis, fires investigations, custom testing and fabrication, material science, and accident reconstructions.
