Tim Adelmann, Brad Weisberg Join Collision Repair Education Foundation Leadership Circle

Tim Adelmann of ABRA Auto Body & Glass and Brad Weisberg of BodyShopBids.com have been added to the Collision Repair Education Foundation’s donor Industry Leadership Circle through their personal contributions of $1,000 each to the organization. The donations from Adelmann and Weisberg will assist the organization in providing support to secondary and post-secondary collision repair students across the country. Through the generosity of the Foundation donors, the organization has provided collision schools and students with $4 million in scholarship and grants since 2008.

ABRA Auto Body & Glass Executive Vice President of Business Development Tim Adelmann said, “I believe in the work that the Collision Repair Education Foundation is doing to assist new students interested in collision repair. Everyone agrees that there is a shortage of young collision repair technicians entering the industry, and I just felt it was time for me to personally give back to the industry that has provided so much to me and my family.”

BodyShopBids.com Founder & CEO Brad Weisberg added, “It’s important that we invest in the future of our industry and provide our youth access to the best possible resources.  It’s our job to ensure that young technicians receive the necessary training to carry on the quality and craftsmanship customary to the industry. The Collision Repair Education Foundation is a tremendous initiative, and I am thrilled to be a part of it.”
