As one of the premier auto body shops in Coffeyville, Diamond Collision is consistently looking to improve its processes and efficiencies. So, when Don Crawford and his team made the decision to upgrade their paint system to the PPG Envirobase system, Crawford contacted Ryan Thompson of Thompson Brothers Welding and Industrial Supply and suggested that they team up and donate the solvent based PPG system and supplies to Coffeyville Community College’s Automotive Collision program. The donation from Diamond Collision and Thompson Brothers Welding totaled $10,000.
“This donation allows us to ensure that our students are trained and educated in a paint process that is widely used in this area by employers.”, said David Johnson, CCC Automotive Collision Instructor. “We utilize both the PPG Envirobase and Solvent Based systems in our training and are thankful for the corporate partners that support our program.”
“Thompson Brothers and Diamond Collision understand the importance of a skilled workforce. We were thrilled to be able to make this donation and assist in furthering a program that develops employees and potential business owners,” said Thompson.
