Kevin Woolerton, Marketing Director, Automotive Refinish, PPG said: When we look to the future, it’s the young people joining now who will take up the baton and continue to drive the collision repair industry forward over the coming decades. With a whole range of ground-breaking technologies on the horizon, a collision repair centre is promising to be more technically advanced and exciting workplace than ever before. It’s the current generation’s role to get that message across, attract the best young talent and then give them the opportunities to develop the skills needed for a long and successful career as an industry professional.”
