BASF Refinish Presenting Industry Study Findings at Today’s CIC

BASF Automotive Refinish Solutions announced that it will present the findings of “Finding Common Ground: A Claims Perspective” today during the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The study – sponsored by BASF and conducted by Square One Systems, Inc. and Condon Consulting, LLC – encompassed over 22 hours of interviews with claims executives and staff from nine major insurers representing about half of the total dollars spent on repairable vehicles per year.

“BASF would like to thank the insurance company executives and staff who participated in the study for giving so generously of their time and for their commitment to addressing industry challenges,” said Chuck Soeder, business director – BASF Automotive Refinish North America. “Considering the scale and breadth of the study, we believe its findings have credibility and will drive cooperation and innovation between industry segments for years to come.”

“Finding Common Ground: A Claims Perspective” is a collision repair industry study that BASF Automotive Refinish Solutions sponsored earlier this year as an extension of the study it sponsored in 2005 – Carlew & Associates Excellence in DRP study – that provided repairers with an opportunity to express their views on the direct repair program (DRP) business model to insurers and the industry at large.

“Finding Common Ground: A Claims Perspective” study findings will be available for download after 3 p.m. today at
