In 2008, FenderBender established the FenderBender Awards to celebrate the achievements of today’s industry superstars. They were created for the core readers of FenderBender, the owners and operators running today’s collision repair facilities, to provide a big stage for them to acknowledge the many individuals that touch their businesses—and lives—on a regular basis. The annual FenderBender Awards celebrate the achievements of today’s top collision repair professionals: those who enhance the industry through their integrity, innovation, and dedication to superior performance.
