Westside Collision Inc. of Houston has been awarded Texas Repair Facility of the Year by Farmers Insurance.
This is Westside Collision Inc.’s. fourth such award in 8 years – the shop won the Lone Star Repair Facility of the Year in 2009, and 2010; the Western Division Repair Facility of the Year in 2013; and the current Texas Repair Facility of the Year for 2016.
This distinguished honor is awarded by Farmers Insurance to shops that have achieved excellent cycle times, provide quality workmanship, and exceptional customer service. Plus, the award winning shop must provide a positive image to their community, and the industry.
“Westside Collision Inc. demonstrated all of the award criteria and much more, “said Farmers Guaranteed Repair Program Supervisor, Mike Mcklusky. “Westside Collision Inc. is unique in that the owners, Mike Matejek and Ronnie Johnston, encourage and invite other shops to visit their facilities, and learn from their vast experience in owning and operating successful collision repair facilities for over 26 years. This thoughtful gesture enables the industry to improve as a whole, and be more successful”.
One additional factor that has contributed to Matejek and Johnston’s success is the use of waterborne finishing products supplied through their partnership with AkzoNobel. These finishing products provide a premium color and application performance that is the key to customer satisfaction.
