American Honda Announces Body Shop Recognition Recipients

American Honda Motor Co, Inc. announced it has designated the first wave of collision repair to be recognized in the American Honda Body Shop Recognition program.

The program is a collaborative agreement with OEConnection and the five main automotive refinish suppliers in the U.S., including DuPont Performance Coatings, PPG, BASF, Sherwin-Williams and AkzoNobel, to create a supporting initiative for Collision Select, American Honda’s wholesale parts program.

To be eligible, shops must be sponsored by a Collision Select-participating Honda or Acura dealer. Shops must also meet certain other requirements including participation in their respective paint company’s performance enhancement program, and the adoption and use of OEConnection’s CollisionLink product. The adoption and use of CollisionLink, a Web-based parts procurement and management tool, facilitates a more efficient and effective parts procurement process both for the car dealer and the body shop, Honda says.

American Honda will recognize qualifying shops for their commitment to a high level of customer care and satisfaction. They will be presented with a plaque and the shop’s contact information placed on a corporate American Honda website in a searchable database accessible by Honda and Acura owners.

At full deployment, American Honda expects over 3,000 shops to qualify for the Body Shop Recognition program.
