Hi-Line Distributors, Inc., a DuPont Performance Coatings Champion jobber serving the state of Hawaii, announced that Mike Anderson, former owner of Wagonworks Collision Centers and owner and founder of CollisionAdvice.com, will be coming on board in March 2011 to offer consulting services to the auto body repair facilities in Hawaii.
Anderson brings with him a wealth of experience and knowledge from the years he has spent running his own operations and taking the path of continuous improvement to the highest level, Hi-Line Distributors says. Anderson’s expertise in developing standard operating procedures (SOPs) for the auto body repair facility and sharing them internationally through his workshops and seminars has shown his commitment to improving the industry and helping others.
His experience and success managing these fundamental principles has proven itself time and time again, as he has served as an executive facilitator for DuPont Performance Services and facilitating multiple Business Council 20 Groups across the nation. Anderson has also directed and served on the board of many industry organizations.
Steve White, president of Hi-Line Distributors, said, “Having Mike Anderson join our team will bring incredible value to the repair facilities in Hawaii. In recent years, Mike has been a facilitator for some of our most successful events and our customers keep asking him back because of the wisdom he instills and the quick application of practical processes that add dollars to their bottom line.”
Anderson will be working with a jobber that has paralleled some of his basic principles at the distribution level. Hi-Line says it supports a staff of 23 that strives to be the best at what they do through continuous improvement in serving the auto body repair facility.
“We cover the gamut," says White. “In addition to being a full-fledged DPC distributor, we’ve recently become the Training Center of the Pacific for DPC by hosting an on sight spray booth and training facility based on the needs of the local market. We strive to respond to the needs of the industry, and with Mike heading up the consulting side of the business for Hi-Line, this will round out our offering as a leading distributor in Hawaii. We are humbled to have Mike Anderson work alongside our team and excited to learn from his teaching as he mentors to our customers and our staff.”
Anderson will continue to be an executive facilitator for DuPont Performance Services as he begins this new partnership with Hi-Line Distributors, Inc.
