“Acoat selected has more than a 25-year record of success within the North American collision repair industry,” said Dave Recknagel, commercial/customer services manager – North America for AkzoNobel’s Vehicle Refinishes business. “The Acoat selected program was a forerunner for many of the programs of its type that we see in the industry today. This conference, as well as all of our programs and events, offers content that is practical, relevant, and creates business environments that enable distributors and collision repair centers to grow and prosper.”
