The air miles have been racked up, the calories have been stacked up (but we stuck to our promise of no McDonalds this year), the shops have been examined and the results are in. Congratulations to the state winners for the 2017 Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards sponsored by Compass Claims, Axalta, Mercedes-Benz, Norton St Gobain, Car Craft and Glasurit. The winners are as follows:


Best New Damage Control Accident Repair Centre

Best Boutique Paull and Warner Accident Repair Centre Belmont

Best large J&M Smash Repairs



Best New Plaza Crash Repairs

Best Boutique Hanson Road Crash Repairs

Best Large Eblen Collision Repairs


Best new Capital Smart Rowville

Best Boutique 5 Star Panels

Best Large B&A Motor Body Repairs


Best New Eagle Smash Repairs

Best Boutique Euro Collision Centre

Best Medium Maxbutts

Best Large Sommerville Smash Repairs


Best New Smashtec

Best Boutique Bennett Elder Smash Repairs

Best medium Len Hollis Repair Facility


The national winners will be announced at the awards in October including the winner of the new category for dealer-owned and large MSO shops. While Captial SMART is judged in this category there was no other new shop nominated for Victoria and Rowville is an impressive operation which is why the group won in the state category as the business was not competing against an independent.

We are still to judge the Best Country Shop, Axalta Sustainability Award, Rising Star, Best Customer Experience, Operational Excellence and Innovation awards.
