Sherwin-Williams A-Plus Network Shops Can Qualify for New Honda Body Shop Recognition Program

Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Corp. (SWAFC) A-Plus Network announced a new strategic alliance with American Honda. Honda has approved the criteria set forth for A-Plus Network membership as a qualifying performance program for Honda’s Body Shop Recognition Program.

As a result, all A-Plus Network members who choose to adopt the OEConnection Collision Link software and are certified Honda or Acura dealer sponsored will become eligible to be specially recognized by American Honda.

With the new A-Plus Network program, to gain recognition, each dealer-owned or independent body shop must be sponsored by their local Honda or Acura Dealership; then these select body shops will then have their company name and contact information placed on a searchable database that is accessible to all Honda/Acura owners. In addition, each recognized shop will receive a plaque noting their participation in the program.

“We appreciate the chance to have our network of leading collision shops be recognized for excellence by American Honda,” said Brandon Devis, SWAFC A-Plus Network program manager. “This recent alliance is the latest example of how our A-Plus Network members are recognized for their professional levels of achievement within the collision repair industry.”
