“At PPG, we are in the collision industry for the long haul and realize that our success is dependent on our customers’ success,” said Jim Berkey, PPG director, business solutions, Automotive Refinish. “When our customers are competitive and prosperous, we are as well. So it’s important to us to offer the most comprehensive training in the refinish industry – training that keeps our customers in front.”

So far, the customer response to MVP training has been positive, according to PPG.

“We use the results of [MVP] job relations training in our everyday work,” said John Gustafson of Gustafson Brothers in Huntington Beach, Calif. “It’s made us a better company with better employees. … The sooner you get the training, the sooner you’ll get the results you want.”
