The Hovis Technical Training Center has developed an educational curriculum that will bring together leaders in the automotive, heavy duty and paint and body industries to train technicians on the latest technology, techniques and applications in their specific fields. These certified trainers from such companies as DuPont, Akzo Nobel/Sikkens, 3M, Delphi, Federal Mogul, Abex and Meritor will bring their expertise and industry knowledge to the center in a streamlined curriculum that allows technicians to choose the courses that best suit their needs.
In addition to offering technical training, the Hovis Technical Training Center will also offer technicians, managers and owners the opportunity to participate in best business practice education to maximize traffic to their shops, improve return visit rates and increase their bottom lines.
“We want to congratulate Cliff and Curt Hovis and their staff on putting together one of the finest training facilities in the country,” says Rusty Bishop, CEO of Federated Auto Parts. “Their dedication and investment in training is a testament to Hovis’ continual commitment to helping their customers grow their businesses.”
Located in western Pennsylvania, Hovis Auto and Truck Supply has been a family-owned business since 1952. Since that time, the company has grown to 14 locations including a new warehouse facility. Hovis executives are industry leaders with Cliff Hovis currently serving on the executive committee and board of governors for Federated Auto Parts, while Vice President Curt Hovis serves on a variety of paint, body and equipment manufacturer boards. In addition, Cliff has also served as a member of the board of governors of AWDA.
