|Fred Haas Toyota World in Spring, Texas, wins Toyota Center of theYear award.|
"We are proud to acknowledge Fred Haas Toyota World on its accomplishment. The store has set a new standard in productivity, profitability and efficiency for the second time around," said Tom Mayhugh, new business manager of national accounts, Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes.
According to Mayhugh, the manager of Fred Haas Toyota World, Jeff Debner, has been instrumental to the center's achievements. "When Debner first started at the collision center, it was an outdated, insufficient facility in a depressed area of Houston. Today, the shop is a huge sensation, well-known for its state-of-the-art equipment, and guarantee of timeliness and customer satisfaction.
Debner and his staff's drive for excellence is apparent in the quality and conciseness of every repair completed in the shop - averaging more than 360 vehicles a month. In addition, their Toyota On Time Collision Repair Line does approximately 45 vehicles a week or nearly 185 each month - and each repair is guaranteed.
"We have the best people in the business. We work on the best product in the business, and we use the best paint in the business," said Debner. "It sure makes my job easier. Plus, we are fortunate to have great ownership and executive management who are committed to the ongoing success of the collision center."
Fred Haas Toyota World received their first award in 2002. The collision center promises the best in automotive care, offering faster repair completion, high-tech equipment, and unbeatable color precision, year after year.
Toyota of Irving was a runner up in the annual contest. "This is a tremendous year for our Toyota customers," Sherwin- Williams' Mayhugh said. "We're thrilled to have two customers recognized for their positive efforts."
David Shirley, collision center manager at Toyota of Irving, stated, "The award for Toyota shop of the year is a very hard award to achieve, so we were honored to receive this recognition as a finalist. We are grateful to our staff and our partners like Sherwin-Williams for their support and dedication in making this happen.

Featuring a 29,000 sq. ft. collision repair center, as well as a service center, parts center and rent-a-car center, the facility boasts state of the art equipment and best in class service.
