Consolidators: Auto Glass Now Opens Two New Locations
The conference is still two months away, but many repairers have already signed up and are excited to learn about low-VOC basecoats and go green.
The 2009 BodyShop Business Waterborne Conference is still two months away (Aug. 13-14), but many collision repairers have already registered and are excited about learning everything they ever wanted to know about low-VOC basecoats and transforming their shops into environmentally-friendly businesses.
Listen to what these repairers have to say about the upcoming conference:
“Waterborne basecoats are the future of the collision repair industry. I like the cycle time improvement factor as well as the environmental impact. All brands of waterborne are relatively similar with some slight differences. This conference is the best way to see all brands under one roof at the same time to make comparisons for a well-rounded transition decision.” Todd Bonecutter, manager, Glenbrook Dodge Collision Center, Fort Wayne, Ind.
“I’m ready to switch now, and when I saw the announcement about your conference, I realized it would be the perfect place to get information on all the latest equipment updates. Also, I wanted the chance to network with other repairers who are ready to make the switch.” Jim Shreve, body shop director, Waikem Accident Repair Center, Massillon, Ohio
“We’re excited about the opportunity to continue educating ourselves on what’s new in the industry and to network with other shops that share the belief in being ‘green’ and moving forward with the latest technologies. If you don’t move forward, you fall behind!” Darrell Weil, owner, and Dave Moran, painter, M & G Body Shop, Cincinnati, Ohio
“Waterborne technology is our future. Knowing that now is like ‘insider trading’…only it’s legal!” Tom Beck, owner, ECO Auto Body, Oxford, Conn.
“As a body shop manager, I need to learn about low-VOC coatings, environmental regulations that will mandate their use and how they’ll affect our operation.” Gary Bender, body shop manager, Smith Dairy Trucking Company, Orrville, Ohio
"My nephew Joey and I know waterborne is the future. We want to be prepared for the change and feel the sooner we learn, the better we’ll be able to incorporate it into our business." Paul Lagrotteria, Murphy Bros. Auto Body, Elyria, Ohio
The following companies will be at the conference to education attendees on the latest cutting-edge waterborne products and equipment:
