The Refinish Distributors Alliance (RDA) has added a new member Westside Auto Paint & Supply, Inc., with headquarters in Fairview Park, OH.

Westside Auto Paint & Supply, Inc. is owned by Pat Vitou and Rob Simko. Westside has three locations in Ohio; Fairview Park, Akron and Elyria. The company has been in business since 1974 and is a single line Axalta Coating Systems (formerly DuPont) distributor. They carry the DuPont, Standox, Nason, DIC and Cromax Pro lines of paint.    

Pat Vitou is looking forward to being a part of the RDA/IMPACT organization. He is eager to share and learn with all of the existing members of the group who he says, “are leaders in the industry”.  Pat is always looking for ways to differentiate himself and the IMPACT Performance Products and Marketing Programs will be an immediate benefit.
