The March Taylor Kina’ole Award is named after collision industry legend March Taylor, who died tragically in 2007. Taylor owned Auto Body Hawaii and was instrumental in creating the DEG — an initiative developed to help improve the quality and accuracy of collision repair estimates — for the ultimate benefit of the entire collision industry.

Kina’ole is a Hawaiian phrase meaning: doing the right thing, in the right way, at the right time, in the right place, to the right person, for the right reason, with the right feeling — the first time — a spirit that Taylor embodied.
