Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes has announced that Farmers Insurance has granted Collision King Auto Body Repair Center in Lubbock, Texas, the Body Shop of the Year award.
This latest award is one of many accolades for Collision King, including being named “Best Auto Body Repair Center in Lubbock” for nine straight years and “Best Body Repair Center” in KCBD Channel 11’s “Best of the West” campaign since 2010.
“We feel a great sense of pride,” said owner Steven Tisdale, “and it’s humbling to be recognized this way. We are in a smaller market compared to areas like Dallas, Houston and Austin. We often fly under the radar getting overlooked by the larger markets in Texas. But we have a great team, we utilize teamwork and empower our people to make good decisions and think on their feet.”
Established in 1998 by Tisdale, Collision King’s management staff brings more than 100 years of combined experience to their work, utilizing the latest technology, including Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes’ primer and topcoat systems to ensure precision work.
“Sherwin-Williams products have been great for our shop,” said Tisdale. “But more important than the products is the ongoing support we get from them. In addition, our local jobber, West Texas Auto Colors, is top-notch and the manager, Antony Palomo, has helped us implement lean process and goes the extra mile any time we need him.”
“At Sherwin-Williams, we truly value our long-term relationship with Collision King and are committed to continue to support them in their pursuit of excellence,” said Glenn Lane, director of sales Southwest, for Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.
