Friday saw more judging for some of many awards that make up the Paint & Panel Bodyshop Awards program. Judges Neil Powell and Steve Lozenkovski from Bears Group came to Editor Sam Street's house and reviewed the Country Repairer and Rising Star video entries.
Once again the standard of the country repairers was mightily impressive with three stand outs, which made choosing the winner challenging. All of the award winners will be announced at our national awards night livestream event which we hope you will all tune in to and watch with your teams on Friday 13 November from 6pm - 7.30pm AEST.
We also undertook the Best Corporate Shop judging and some of the best practice awards such as the Axalta Business Excellence Awards. There have been so many entries in the many categories that we have still to judge the Best Heavy Vehicle Repairer, Best MSO awards and the hotly contested Best Customer Experience award.
Many thanks as always to all of our sponsors (my Compass Polo finally arrived thanks!) especially our Platinum and Gold Sponsors. A stern look at my dog Josie who had provided an unhelpful backing track of barking and general scrabbling about. Thanks to judges Powell and Lozenkovski who have been very well behaved and generous with their time.
