3M Automotive Aftermarket Division knows how much our nation’s veterans have given to our country. That’s why the company has had a long-standing commitment to giving back to the men and women who have served. Now, 3M AAD is offering the opportunity for body shop owners to say “thank you” to their veteran employees with a special contest.

3M Automotive Aftermarket Division believes that our nation's military veterans make great employees for the collision repair industry. To show support and appreciation, 3M AAD is offering a chance for shop owners to recognize and honor a military veteran employee and have a chance to win a trip for both owner and employee to attend the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Race in Texas on Nov. 6.


Between now and 11:59:59 p.m. CT on August 31, 2016, shop owners can visit to nominate a veteran co-worker and share what makes them a great employee.  Ten winners will be drawn and each will win a trip for two (the nominator and the veteran) for an expense-paid trip to join Chip Foose at the Texas race.


“There are so many great veterans doing incredible work in body shops across the country,” said Dale Ross, U.S. Marketing Operations Manager at 3M Automotive Aftermarket Division.  “We are looking forward to honoring some of those veterans who are making a positive impact on the collision repair industry, and those who have hired them, with a special trip to see the NASCAR race in Texas.”


3M AAD’s pledge to help veterans has seen great success.  Through a partnership with the Collision Repair Education Foundation (CREF), 3M has donated more than $750,000 since 2013 which has been used toward scholarships and tool grants for nearly 210 military veterans and their families through the 3M Hire Our Heroes program.
