Hoffman Estates, IL - February 23, 2007 - All 14 ColorMatch Automotive Refinish Center locations owned and operated by Hub City PBE, a DuPont jobber, have earned the I-CAR Gold Class Professionals designation. In April 2006, ColorMatch/Hub City PBE employees began completing I-CAR training to meet the training initiative. Earning the new designation includes all ColorMatch locations in Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee, Indiana, Kentucky, and Florida, and approximately 81 employees.

"As a paint distributor it is important for us to fully understand our customers' needs," states Tony Nethery, Hub City PBE Training and Business Development Manager. "We also felt it was important to be at the same training standard as the rest of the industry, focusing the majority of employee training on refinishing and some damage analysis."

"I-CAR training is highly regarded in the industry," states Robert McKenzie Jr., Hub City PBE President. "Earning the Gold Class designation will help employee job performance, as well as their understanding of other aspects of the collision industry. Establishing a training relationship with I-CAR allows for greater communication among all facets of the collision industry."

"I-CAR worked closely with Hub City PBE to achieve this goal," states Jeff Peevy I-CAR Field Operations Manager. "After a thorough examination it was determined how I-CAR training best applies to each job responsibility - training was then put into place, and the training initiative was met. At this time, I-CAR is pleased to celebrate with Hub City PBE on this great achievement."

The Gold Class Professionals program requires 5 points of tested training per employee to qualify, which equates to 20 hours of training per employee. For more information about the Gold Class Professionals program, visit www.i-car.com.

I-CAR, founded in 1979, is an international not-for-profit training organization dedicated to improving the quality, safety, and efficiency of auto collision repair for the ultimate benefit of consumers.
