On the right is Mike Shesterkin, sustainability officer for AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas. "FIT" is an acronym for the three key measurement criteria of the award: Focus, Innovation and Talent. This award, an industry innovation of AkzoNobel, was created to promote the leadership role and unique contributions which the collision repair industry is making to generate a more sustainable future.
Tim Loden, Director of Marketing for AkzoNobel Car Refinishes Americas noted, "While each of two entities receiving the 2010 FIT award are different in business scope and focus, they share a common bond in their aggressive pursuit to deliver sustainable, environmentally-focused business solutions to the collision repair industry. They have found innovative ways to meet the needs of the present without compromising the needs of the future."
"The collision repair industry can help contribute to a healthier environment in many ways, by working smarter and adopting lean practices, using eco-friendly waterborne paints, and recycling materials like metals and glass. And in these economically challenging times, we realize that energy efficiency also results in significant cost savings," said Gigi Walker, President of the California Autobody Association and owner of Walker's AutoBody in Concord, California.
Walker continues, "California Autobody Association is honored to be recognized by AkzoNobel with an award that will help to raise awareness of the great strides our industry is making to improve sustainability, reduce our environmental footprint, and preserve natural resources."
Eric McKenzie, Director of Body Shop Operations in Dallas, Texas, agrees. "As an industry, we have a responsibility to be good corporate citizens, and finding greener ways is good for the environment and good for business. Even the smallest actions add up to make a significant impact."
