  • With 2015 coming to a close, the most significant trends in the U.S. collision repair market continue to be the impact of new materials, the increasing importance of OEM certifications and the continuing growth of Multi-Site Operation (MSO) businesses--especially the largest MSOs.
  • From the courtroom to the aluminum “clean room,” 2016 is shaping up to be another year of change and drama for the collision repair industry.
