HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL – December 18, 2014 – National Coatings & Supplies (NCS) has donated over $500,000 in product to high school and post-secondary collision school programs across the country through the Collision Repair Education Foundation. The products donated by NCS will allow students the opportunity to practice their collision repair and refinishing skills.
“We are excited to invest into the industry and into our future. Supporting the Collision Repair Education Foundation and the students will help to ensure future talent in the automotive aftermarket,” noted Wayne Lavrack, President, NCS.
Collision Repair Education Foundation Director of Development Brandon Eckenrode noted, “This is a first-time donation from NCS to the Collision Repair Education Foundation and what an incredible donation it has been. These school instructors are being overwhelmed with the generosity of these donations and instead of worrying about not having enough material to provide a quality technical education for their students, instructors are faced with the issue of not having enough room to store all of the donations. I cannot thank NCS enough for their support and we look forward to a continued partnership in helping to support the future professionals of the industry.”
