Nov. 6, 2012—LORD Corp., a manufacturer of automotive repair adhesives, coatings and electronic materials, has made a monetary and in-kind donation to the Collision Repair Education Foundation to support collision repair students nationwide.
The Cary, N.C.-based company donated $2,500 to the Education Foundation in order to purchase technician shirts for collision repair students. LORD also donated $30,000 worth of products and demonstration classes. The product donations include LORD’s Fusor 804 seam sealer, Fusor 805 wheelhouse coating and sound deadener, Fusor 312 sprayable seam sealer and dispenser guns.
“We are honored to support such a great cause that benefits industry schools, students and teachers,” said Brett Luketic, LORD’s director of marketing and sales for automotive and electronics. “The Foundation’s educational efforts help shape our future collision industry professionals and we are proud to be a part of this.”
The Education Foundation will distribute the donated products to students and instructors at 18 secondary and post-secondary collision repair technical schools and colleges.
“LORD Corporation’s product donation helps provide collision instructors with the latest in collision repair supplies that their school’s budget may not allow them to gain access to, which are vital to assisting in the technical education of their collision students,” said Clark Plucinski, executive director of the Education Foundation. “I thank LORD for their continued support of the Collision Repair Education Foundation through both monetary and product donations, and invite other industry companies to consider following LORD’s example in supporting future professionals of the collision industry.”
