Axalta Coating Systems increases support for HD Repair Forum

Posted on March 12, 2019

Axalta Coating Systems, a provider of OEM coatings for seven of eight North American commercial vehicle manufacturers and coatings for collision repair, is increasing its support of the annual heavy-duty collision repair conference, HD Repair Forum.

“The idea of the forum is to bring influential people in to examine the state of the industry including trends and issues and understanding the impacts on repairers and other industry stakeholders, such as insurance companies, and discuss what we need to do to prepare for the future,” said Richard Cecchini, North American sales manager for Axalta’s Commercial Transportation Division.

Earlier this year, Axalta committed to their continued involvement and support, with an increased sponsorship level of the HD Repair Forum. It also wholeheartedly supports their Business Council Member’s unanimous decision to host their spring meeting alongside the program.

Axalta Coating Systems has two Commercial Transportation Business Council Member groups, one designed for truck and fleet based collision repairers and another geared towards RV and emergency vehicle collision repairers.

“The goal of our councils is to promote an environment where owners and managers can interact with other professionals, share best practices, and further develop their business management skills,” explains Cecchini. “Joining an Axalta Business council is a solid commitment by owners and managers to continuously improve their businesses. Our council members are the best of the best, true leaders in the industry.”

The HD Repair Forum aims to foster growth and progress in the heavy-duty collision repair industry through the exchange of knowledge, experience, and feedback from all industry stakeholders. On April 2 to 3, heavy-duty collision repair professionals, insurance parties, OEs and equipment, and service providers from across North America will gather at the Hilton in Fort Worth, Texas. They will obtain information on the latest trends and industry issues and learn about the newest vehicle technology, solution-based services, and training opportunities available to the market.

The complete agenda for the HD Repair Forum was released early last month and can be found here.
