"We want to support the industry that supports us, and we find a lot of value in engaging with an organization like SCRS who represents the leading businesses in the industry," said Valspar North American Automotive Marketing Manager Gina Mahan. "SCRS is a proven and effective voice for body shops, and an advocate that helps strengthen the industry as a whole. A healthy, successful collision repair industry is best for everyone, and SCRS makes a significant and noticeable contribution to ensure this is the case; we want to be aligned with organizations like that."
Valspar Automotive recently responded to an SCRS questionnaire surrounding automotive refinish suppliers' positions on clearcoat blending; representing the first of many ways the two companies can collaborate to ensure the industry has the reference material necessary to document proper repairs.
"We deeply appreciate Valspar Automotive's desire to make a positive impact on the collision repair industry through partnering with organizations like SCRS that can make the most difference in the industry," stated SCRS Executive Director Aaron Schulenburg. "SCRS Corporate Membership has come to be synonymous with the difference-makers in the industry, and it's so exciting when businesses like Valspar Automotive seek out opportunities to connect for the betterment of all in the field. Our conversations have outlined a lot of parallel objectives, and we look forward to enjoying a long and effective collaboration with them."
