“Our industry is fast-paced and always evolving. I love being part of such a dynamic industry. We are extremely passionate about customer service and quality craftsmanship. That’s not just a tagline. Craftsmanship isn’t simply a good paint job; it’s a thorough process implemented from the first minute the cars enters the building. Standards are set and followed every single time from start to end.”
