Northside Lexus Named Lexus Certified Collision Center of the Year
STRONGSVILLE, Ohio – April 19, 2011 – A special recognition dinner was held last month at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar in Houston, Texas, to celebrate Northside Lexus as the recipient of the 2010 Toyota/Lexus Certified Collision Center of the Year award. Houston-based Northside Lexus was selected from among the 180 Toyota and Lexus Certified Collision Center (TCCC/LCCC) dealers nationwide and is the second Lexus dealer collision center to win the award. (Westside Lexus in Houston won the award in 2008.) PPG is the dealership’s paint supplier.
Roger Foss, national field support manager for Toyota Motor Sales, presented the award. “This honor goes to the dealer that best exemplifies the spirit of certification. All 180 dealers were evaluated on a point system based on customer satisfaction, manager, estimator and technician certification, facility and equipment requirements, and benchmark achievements.” Accepting the award for Northside Lexus were David Trice, general manager, and Rob Ochoa, collision center manager. They shared the recognition and the evening with 26 collision center employees and their guests.
“I attribute the success of 2010 to our participation in the TCCC/LCCC program, the solid support of PPG and their MVP Business Solutions program, and outstanding service from TASCO Auto Color,” said Ochoa.
Representatives of PPG and TASCO Auto Color, a PPG Platinum Distributor, attended the event and presented commemorative jackets to all shop personnel.
