AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings Americas (A&AC) has announced the recipients of the fourth annual AkzoNobel FIT Sustainability Award for 2013. Three U.S. industry organizations were selected for operating practices that advance the goals of sustainability through the three key principles of FIT: Focus, Innovation and Talent.
The winners include:
- Given’s Collision Repair Center, Inc. Fredrick, Md.
- Collision Repair Education Foundation Hoffman Estates, Ill.
- Haury’s Lake City Collision Seattle, Wash.
“We are delighted to recognize these leaders with the FIT Award,” said A&AC Americas Director of Marketing Laura Costello. “From ensuring that the collision repair industry has an ongoing, well-trained and educated workforce to new processes implemented in repair centers targeting the reduction of waste and an improved carbon footprint, these thought leaders are doing their part to actively model and guide personnel and colleagues on the long-term impact that sustainable practices can have on our environment, the people around us, and business profitability.”
Representatives from Given’s Collision Repair Center, the Collision Repair Education Foundation and Haury’s Lake City Collision will be invited to participate as honored panelists at the third annual AkzoNobel Sustainability Leadership Symposium, to be held Monday, Nov. 4, at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
