Our relationships with customers run far deeper than simply dropping off a can of paint. Measuring key performance indicators and presenting them in an understandable manner is essential to a shop’s success. Our Performance Tracking Portal is powered by Microsoft and has been developed by business and body shop experts. It is designed to present meaningful, customizable data that shop owners can use to make informed decisions. We don’t rely on our customers to interpret the information; our experts are at-the-ready and love to help shops identify ways to increase profitability.

Education Training & Certifications

We have regional education centers that offer training and certifications that your painters need. Bringing new paint technicians up to speed quickly is necessary to help ensure profitability. When new products are available, you need a partner who has the expertise and resources to train your team to use them effectively. We also offer business classes, estimating courses, chemistry and marketing seminars…just to name a few.

Infrared Curing System


Gas-catalytic medium-wave infrared (IR) curing is being adapted for automotive coatings as a result of shorter cure cycles and smaller floor space requirements when compared to conventional spray booths.



From the very beginning, we knew we had to provide more than just a can of paint. Our role has always been to help make our customers successful. Now, with more than 7,000 customers, over 30 wholesale distribution locations, over 20 retail locations, and continuing growth in product lines, Industrial Finishes Automotive Group is an industry leader. But, we’re still not satisfied.

We work hard to make sure our technical knowledge and training remain strong. Your business can always look to us for answers. Our support staff consists of experts with decades of experience. We partner with the best manufacturers in the world to bring you the finest paint and products available.

Products come and go, but opportunities are always present. We focus on identifying those opportunities and developing solutions that create financial success for our customers. Let us know how we can help you.
