A call for nominations. The award of a lifetime!

April 2022 will see the industry come together for the first time since 2019 as the Collision Repair Expo returns to Melbourne. At the National Collision Repairer, we have decided to hold the 2022 awards on the eve of the expo, Wednesday 6 April.

This is a “friendly reminder” that now is the time to think about those who go “above and beyond the call of duty” and have made our great industry what it is today. So, if you know someone who:

  • Has a minimum of 10 years in the collision repair industry
  • Contributes to the collision repair industry beyond the scope of their local area
  • Contributes to the collision repair industry beyond the scope of their direct employment

Since the inception of this award, we have inducted 50 industry leaders onto the Honour Roll, including collision repairers, equipment suppliers, coatings suppliers, insurers and, of course, TAFE teachers. Of the 50, there have been five international recipients who have not only developed the industry in their home countries, but also left an enduring mark on the Australian collision industry landscape. These are the real change agents of our industry, those who have shaped, built, disrupted, influenced and developed the industry since the middle of last century.

Of course, this is only possible with the support of our sponsors, many of whom have been with us since the inaugural awards in 2007 and, once again, we take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the individuals and their organisations who support this initiative that truly does “honour the past”.
