Making the Green Scene
For a healthier planet without sacrificing quality on any auto body repair, Mike’s Auto Body uses Envirobase® High Performance waterborne paint manufactured by PPG in all of its 16 locations. This environmentally friendly paint is part of our plan for being a responsible, forward-thinking and conscientious part of each business community in which we repair cars. Well before California mandated the use of waterborne paint, Mike’s Auto Body switched to a waterborne paint that that improves the air quality while producing high-quality paint jobs time after time. By using waterborne paint made by PPG, Mike’s Auto Body is proud to say that they’re a green business and focused on the bigger picture when it comes to fixing cars in an environmentally responsible way.
At Mike’s Auto Body, all of our waste is recycled whenever possible. Paper, cardboard, steel, plastic and even aluminum is recycled for re-use at all of our 16 locations. Any company creates waste, but by proactively recycling, Mike’s Auto Body recycles its waste, reducing the size of the landfill and making the planet a cleaner place for all of us sharing the planet.
At Mike’s Auto Body, we value all of our employees and that’s one of the reasons why we use waterborne paint, to provide cleaner air and a better working environment for all of paint and body technicians. In addition, Mike’s Auto Body uses Dust & Vacuum Systems in all of our locations, to alleviate dust in the air. When sanding occurs during many auto body repairs, dust flies everywhere, but by using the newest, cutting-edge dust and vacuum equipment at every Mike’s Auto Body location, everyone can breathe just a little easier.
Training and Education
At Mike’s Auto Body, we believe in the precepts of the Inter-Industry Conference on Auto Collision Repair (I-CAR), because it’s the educational and training organization that keeps us informed and proactive in pursuing the latest collision repair techniques available. With all of our fully-trained technicians learning and using factory repair techniques taught through I-CAR classes, customers at Mike’s Auto Body can rest assured that each and every collision repair that we perform is safe, complete and according to the car manufacturer’s instructions. With today’s new cars and their amazing navigation systems, accident avoidance systems, composite metals and new plastics, etc., all of our technicians need to be highly-trained and knowledgeable in order to succeed in today’s collision industry, and I-CAR allows us to achieve exactly that.
With top instructors throughout the country, I-CAR leads the way when it comes to education. Many of our techs go through extensive schooling to reach their goals professionally and by constantly pursuing the latest classes, all of the professionals at Mike’s Auto Body are some of the best in the business. And that’s why each of the 16 locations owned and operated by Mike’s Auto Body is an I-CAR Gold Class certified shop while many of our technicians have achieved I-CAR’s Platinum Level Certification, the highest any collision professional can attain.
