ASA Adds Inaugural ‘Supporting Association’

The National Alliance of Paintless Dent Repair Technicians (NAPDRT) has joined the Automotive Service Association (ASA) as its first “supporting association” member, a new membership category. It has aligned itself with ASA to address common problems affecting both the collision and paintless dent repair (PDR) industries.

Tommy Clayton, NAPDRT president, said his association has enjoyed a close working relationship with ASA for several years. “We feel this will strengthen the relationship and allow the two associations to handle issues that effect the PDR and collision industry in a more effective way,” Clayton said.

Dan Risley, ASA executive director, said the new membership category was designed with fellow industry groups in mind. “NAPDRT is a perfect match. There is a tremendous amount of common ground in regard to the goals of our organizations,” Risley said. “From legislative activities to operational matters, we look forward to addressing and resolving these issues together.”

The National Alliance of PDR Technicians is a non-profit organization based in North Carolina. The mission of NAPDRT is to unite independent PDR technicians, and to educate technicians and consumers about the accountability, quality service and value provided by its members.
