PPG Automotive Refinish has formed a strategic alliance with American Honda and its new Body Shop Recognition Program. American Honda has approved the credentials of PPG’s CertifiedFirst Network and MVP Business Solutions programs as qualifying refinish supplier performance programs, PPG announced.
“We are pleased to form this relationship with American Honda,” said Steve Topczewski, PPG OEM business development manager. “Honda has a solid quality reputation and sets very high standards for its collision center network. Being selected to team up with them through our CertifiedFirst and MVP programs is something we can be proud of.”
American Honda will recognize dealer-owned and independent body shops in the U.S. that:
Participate in the PPG CertifiedFirst and MVP programs
Adopt its OEConnection’s CollisionLink software program
Conduct a minimum number of transactions through the CollisionLink system
Collision shops meeting the above requirements will have their name, address and contact information entered in a searchable database accessible by Honda/Acura owners as well as receive a plaque noting their participation in the program.
Qualifying PPG-affiliated collision centers must be sponsored by a Honda/Acura dealer participating in the American Honda Collision Select Program. Additionally, eligible collision centers must adopt the OEConnection CollisionLink parts ordering software as a prerequisite to the program.
