BASF names Distributor of the Year

May 11, 2012

May 11, 2012—BASF Automotive Refinish recently presented Phoenix-based Leading Edge Auto Refinishers Inc. with its Distributor of the Year award during the company’s annual ColorSource Conference in La Jolla, Calif.

Denise Kingstrom, strategic accounts manager for BASF, said Leading Edge Auto Refinishers received the award because of its focus on innovation, forward thinking, commitment to waterborne conversions, and customer service and support that differentiates the company from other distributors in Arizona.

“We are very proud to receive this award on behalf of the entire team at Leading Edge. It would be hard to imagine operating Leading Edge without all the talented people in the organization,” said Matt Johnson, co-owner of Leading Edge, which has been a family-owned and operated company since 1993. “We would also like to thank BASF for supporting our business initiatives. Without BASF’s single-line ColorSource PREMIER program, much of what we have accomplished in Arizona would have not been possible. BASF is vital to our success. It’s a unique partnership because we all succeed together.”
