LC Automotive Investments, LLC, a multi-shop operator (MSO) comprised of nine locations serving over 800 monthly customers in the greater Los Angeles, CA, area, is the newest National Auto Body Council (NABC) diamond-level member.
A standout organization that has implemented lean production techniques to increase production efficiencies, ensure an expertly repaired vehicle, and produce customer satisfaction levels among the highest in the industry, LC Automotive Group also encourages each of its facilities to establish strong ties to the communities they serve.
This objective takes shape in a variety of ways, including service through relationships with the local chamber of commerce, business networking groups, school districts, city governments and police departments as well as contributions to local community-improvement fundraisers and support of organizations like Wounded Warriors, Oxfam and World Vision.
This community-facing orientation played a large role in LC Automotive’s decision to support the National Auto Body Council, whose vision and mission aligns well with the MSO’s own.
“The National Auto Body Council provides an excellent opportunity to enhance both our image and that of the industry,” said LC Automotive Group Owner and President Bill Lawrence. “We have participated in Recycled Rides and have supported Operation Comfort. It’s our intention to continue to give back to our industry and the communities in which we operate. Raising our membership level to the diamond level is one of the ways we can best support the values and objectives we share with NABC.”
The National Auto Body Council appreciates the support of LC Automotive Group and is pleased that it can provide the opportunity for its member shops to get positive local coverage.
“By making this major step forward in membership, Bill is paying testimony to how using our programs can work for you,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “It’s great to have all nine LC Automotive shops involved in our initiatives, and Bill stepping up to become a diamond-level member is more than I could have ever hoped for. It makes a positive statement on behalf of the NABC and I am honored to call him a friend as well as strong supporter of our organization."
Companies and collision repairers interested in changing the industry for the better can help by becoming a member of the NABC. Membership applications are available on the website at www.autobodycouncil.org.
