For John Scetta and the crew at Performance Collision & Restyling, every day is a chance to do something great.
We’ve seen the numbers of dealer owned collision repair facilities shrink in recent years. Every case is different, but the smart money says that dealers rarely close a part of the business that’s acting as a profit centre.
However, the tide may be turning. Dealers are looking at collision with fresh eyes, and the drive within the industry towards greater efficiency is making the business a more attractive proposition. Today’s dealers know that profit can only be realized if the management and staff are top-notch.
