Hyundai Motor America joins SCRS
July 6, 2011 — Hyundai Motor America (HMA) recently joined the Society of Collision Repair Specialists (SCRS) as a corporate member.
The company is a California-based subsidiary of Korean auto manufacturer Hyundai Motor Company. SCRS says such partnerships are beneficial for manufacturers and the collision repair industry.
“Because of the technological demands the modern vehicle poses, our members—and the collision repair industry in general—are constantly in need of up-to-date information that assists in ensuring the vehicle is repaired correctly and safely," said SCRS Chairman Aaron Clark. “As a repair association we are very pleased to add Hyundai Motor America to our healthy list of OEMs that actively participate with SCRS, and are confident that their corporate membership will facilitate a beneficial exchange of necessary information.”
One of he ways HMA makes repair information available is through a website for the aftermarket and wholesale community. The site, hyundaiwholesale.com, offers a dealer locator, service information, online collision catalog and other information.
"HMA is proud to work with SCRS, who have strived for many years to elevate the entire collision repair industry," said Mark Williams, senior parts sales manager for HMA. "HMA recognizes that by working closely with SCRS we will ultimately improve the overall ownership experience for the Hyundai customer when a collision repair is required. Hyundai will work closely with SCRS to fully implement their vision to provide world class collision industry standards."
SCRS is made up of 6,000 collision repair businesses and 58,500 specialized professionals who work with consumers and insurance companies to repair collision-damaged vehicles. For more information, go to scrs.com.
