The highlight of the open house was the appearance of automotive designers Chip Foose, owner of Foose Design, and KC Mathieu, previously featured on Discovery Channel’s hit series “Fast N’ Loud.”

“Our new competence center in the Southwest illustrates our commitment not only to the automotive refinish market but also to our distributors and collision repair shops in the area,” said Toomey. “It’s great to have Chip and KC here to highlight their commitment to Glasurit and R-M. We’re honored that top designers and restorers exclusively use BASF paint systems.”
