With its nearly 95-year history in the Canadian automotive landscape, UAP, doing business as NAPA and NAPA/CMAX, has quite the reputation as the only distributor providing paint and body supply products from coast to coast.
NAPA/CMAX has more technical reps than ever before—meaning wherever you are in Canada, a representative is ready to assist you in finding exactly what you need. From scanners and car benches to welders, paint and so much more; NAPA/CMAX is prepared to connect you with your product solution, whatever your needs may be.
This year, NAPA/CMAX say one of its hottest products has been the electronic inventory control systems, which allows bodyshops to control and track their material consumption.
When it comes to tracking paint, the electronic inventory control system from Axalta can track by the gram, ensuring that you never take more paint than necessary for any job. Furthermore, the system integrates the paint mix directly into the repair order, allowing you to add the exact amount of paint used to the bill, and—If you’re using the Mitchell interface, that information will automatically go into the Mitchell system.
“We’ve been able to accurately gauge inventory values in collision centres using this tool and, in some markets, we’ve even been able to accelerate delivery of products to once a day to centres within a short distance,” said Keith Tuttosi, national director for paint and bodyshop major accounts for NAPA/CMAX. NAPA/CMAX handles much more than just paint and body—the company offers nearly every tool an automotive repairer needs in their arsenal.
“We can get you enough products for you to build a car, aside from the tires, windshield, glass, and frame—we can pretty much source everything else,” said Tuttosi.
“Here at NAPA/CMAX, we are very happy to partner with collision centres; we want to be a partner, not just a supplier.”
