Background: Collision industry professionals can now receive AMi credits for reading articles written by BASF’s John Shoemaker, Business Development Manager.

Shoemaker has been contributing articles to ABRN since 2010, offering refinish tips, shop process suggestions, and proven techniques to improve process and profitability in collision shops. In 2019, he has teamed up with AMi, the Automotive Management Institute, to offer AMi credits for reading his informative articles and taking a short quiz.

The True Cost of Collision Repair Supplements” is Shoemaker’s first article eligible for AMi credit. He discusses the immense added cost that supplements can cause to a single repair and how best to avoid supplements, decreasing cycle time and increasing profitability.

AMi-eligible articles from Shoemaker will be published online monthly. Previous articles can be found in ABRN archives.

BASF’s product portfolio includes products for multiple industries. A product that is compliant for one region, industry, application or end use, may not be compliant for another region, industry, application or end-use, and BASF accordingly disclaims all representations, conditions and warranties of fitness for a particular purpose.

To assist automotive refinish customer searching for information about BASF products that meet the VOC limits for automotive refinish use, BASF provides Wall Charts that list the products that are compliant with the automotive refinish VOC regulations in specific regions in North America (country, province, state, air districts). It is the responsibility of the purchaser/end-user to ensure they know and understand the regulations for their specific region, industry, application and end use and ensure that the products that they are using are compliant with all applicable regulatory requirements and any permits specific to their business.
