CollisionMax Autobody and Glass Centers is the recipient of a Sustainability Award from the Gloucester Township (N.J.) Economic Development Corporation in recognition of its environmentally friendly business practices.
The award, presented by Camden County Freeholder Michelle Gentek, cites CollisionMax for “your company’s dedication to recycling, contribution to the community and commitment to the environment.” CollisionMax operates 11 auto body repair shops Philadelphia and its suburbs in Pennsylvania and South Jersey, including one in the Blackwood section of Gloucester Township.
Rich Tornetta, CollisionMax’s marketing communications manager, accepted the award on behalf of the company. He said the award was prompted in part by an April 2012 cover story in Fender Bender, an industry trade magazine, about his efforts to improve and systematize the company’s recycling efforts and its conversion to waterborne paints (http://www.fenderbender.com/FenderBender/April-2012/Green-Motivator/).
Mr. Tornetta said that in 2012, CollisionMax’s 11 shops recycled nearly 400 tons of metal, plastic, glass and paper, 2,600 gallons of antifreeze, motor oil and solvent paint, and 851 tires. He also hired a vendor to shred and recycle used bumper cores and created an incentive program for employees to recycle aluminum for cash to be used for employee events.
“At CollisionMax, we realize that we’re more than just a company that fixes cars,” Mr. Tornetta said. “We’re a part of the community, and we want to be good citizens and neighbors.”
Founded in 1976, CollisionMax operates 11 auto body and glass repair centers in the Delaware Valley. In New Jersey it has centers in Blackwood, Cinnaminson, Glassboro, Marlton, Pennsauken, Sicklerville and Westmont.
