Founded in 1963, ASA-AZ is a statewide association composed of body shops, mechanical service facilities and industry suppliers. The group provides training, legislative representation and networking opportunities to collision repairers.
“The common denominator linking our members is the desire to strive for and maintain high standards in how we do business and how we take care of our customer,” said ASA-AZ board member Paul Val of Raintree Autobody in Scottsdale. “Our unity has helped us make progress toward solutions for the serious challenges our industry faces locally, but we also realize we need a national presence. That’s why we decided to pursue a relationship with SCRS.”
ASA-AZ has lobbied for fair and equitable labor rates and anti-steering legislation in the Arizona legislature, paralleling what SCRS does on a national level.
“Affiliation will promote a two-way street of communication that will help members succeed in a toughening market,” said SCRS Chairman Barry Dorn. “We’ll hear firsthand what Arizona repairers are facing and use our expertise to help them where we can. ASA-AZ, being a very active association, will bring forward their own set of fresh ideas and perspectives. All involved will benefit as a result.”
