RALEIGH, NC (PRWEB) December 15, 2006
Billion Auto Body, located in Bozeman, MT, is the 2006 CARQUEST Automotive Refinish Supply Excellence Award winner. Keith Stone, Manager of Billion Auto Body and his wife, Susie, recently accepted the award in Charlotte, NC.
The CARQUEST Automotive Refinish Supply Excellence Award seeks to recognize the top independent automotive refinish supply business in North America that, through the course of everyday service excellence, exemplifies the professionalism necessary to build public understanding and respect for people working in the Collision Repair industry today.
"It is an honor to represent the Billion family and be recognized by CARQUEST as its 2006 Refinish Supply winner, " said Stone, a 33 year veteran of the automotive refinish industry who moved to Bozeman, MT from Salt Lake City, UT three years ago. " Bozeman is a small community that is growing rapidly with new citizens from California, Washington, Minnesota, all types of larger metropolitan areas, and our customers expect big city service. Our 14 dedicated employees provide service with hometown values, but with high tech results and they do it with high moral and a great attitude."
Billion Auto Body is a second generation, family-owned business. Founded in 1935 by Henry Billion, today Joe and Diane Billion operate the business along with two dealerships. Billion Auto Body has built a reputation based on honesty, dependability, quality and hard work ethics. Keith Stone credits the relationship with his local CARQUEST Automotive Refinish Supply store as one of the keys to the success of the business.
"Mike Brush (store manager) and Mark Boudreau (sales pro) at CARQUEST are more than a supplier, they are our partner," said Stone. "In my 33 years in business, I've never worked so close with a Jobber and I have both a professional and personal relationship with the Mike, Mark and their team. Our CARQUEST store is loyal and is always there for us when we need them."
Kevin Nelson, PBE Sales Manager for CARQUEST commented, "Billion Auto Body employees embrace their company's mission statement of providing their customers with a shopping, buying and service experience that consistently satisfies and exceeds their expectations. It is an honor to have Billion Auto Body as a partner of CARQUEST."
