Josh Fuller, chairman of the Central Massachusetts I-CAR Committee and board member of AASP/MA, was pleased to see the local industry show such a strong commitment to strengthening the educational opportunities available in the Commonwealth.

“When shops think about having to keep up with technology, they should also think about the schools,” said Fuller. “They often struggle to survive, and that is why we’re here to help.”

Sponsors for the Axe Tournament included Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Auto Body Supplies and Paint (ABSAP), Al Brodeur’s Auto Body (Marlborough, Mass.), Lexus of Watertown, Albert Kemperle Inc., Bernardi Auto Group, BASF, Haskins Automotive of Wellesley, Body & Paint Center of Hudson and Lombard Equipment.
