Washington Collision Shop Group Awards Jobber with ‘Simply the Best’ Award

DuAnne Nestegard and the employees of Wesco Autobody Supply received the Collision Automotive Repair Services, Inc. (CARS) "Simply the Best" Award Aug. 18 at their corporate headquarters in Mountlake Terrace, Wash. The award recognizes jobbers who have gone beyond their normal day-to-day operations to become a leader in their field in terms of customer service.

CARS is a membership cooperative that brings body shops and vendors together to allow shops to have increase buying power in numbers and vendors to create loyal customers.
Wesco became affiliated with the CARS in 1993, and because of the integral part the company plays in the automotive repair industry in the Pacific Northwest, CARS acknowledged its achievements through a plaque presentation for the management and employees of Wesco.

Weco’s dedication to customers and staff stems from the idea of the total package, according to Lloyd White, president of Wesco Autobody Supply. The company has been in business for 37 years and provides products for three states in the Pacific Northwest. It has grown over the years to 24 retail and wholesale outlets with two warehouses, one of which contains more than 28,000 square feet of space.

Wesco is the largest supplier of 3M and BASF paint products in Washington.

CARS noted that Wesco provides many services to the collision repair industry, including providing complete layouts for construction of new shops or expansions, plus plans and financial proposals. Wesco also provides a state-of-the-art training facility to keep all employees, shop owners and shop employees up to date on the latest technologies within the industry, according to CARS.

Wesco has utilized these various aspects of its business to create a "total package" to provide people with the knowledge and products they need to be successful, CARS says.

Nestegard has been with Wesco for 25 years. She is in the coordinator of Wesco’s Point-of-Sales as well as the CARS Rewards Program Coordinator. Nestegard is not only an integral part of Wesco, but also in the community, according to CARS. She was a girls’ sports trainer for Tonasket High School, attended Shoreline Community College, supports the Parent Teacher Association and leads a Girl Scouts troop.
