Collision Works, the largest MSO in the Oklahoma/Kansas area, switched over to the new Ultra 9K™ Waterborne Refinish System from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. Technical and system specialists from Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes were on-site throughout the conversion to ensure a smooth transition from the previous to new system, and to train painters how to apply Ultra 9K and use Sherwin-Williams' color tools including online retrieval software, global color box and spectrophotometer. The process at Collision Works location in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, according to Store Leader, James Cornell and Lead Painter, Zac Yarbrough, was seamless and required little to no learning curve--they're painting more cars now using Sherwin-Williams' "best basecoat ever."

Connie Manjavinos explains how she got into the paint industry. She started out using a few different guns, but SATA was the one that stuck with her because of the bold look, good grip, easy flow, she gets quality work with her SATA and RPS cups. She enjoys working with SATA and the Dan-Am Company team because of the family-oriented service and care. She wants to continue to inspire people with Girls behind the Gun and getting people inspired to get into this industry.
