GenRock is Lusid’s flagship product, and was designed for quality, coverage and color matching. The line offers a complete range of high-quality 2K single-stage, two-stage and three-stage basecoats.
Due to super high pigment loading, GenRock provides excellent coverage with only two coats, saving shops time and money. Quick flash-off means painters spend a minimal amount of time waiting for the basecoat to dry before they can apply clear.
Runge’s Auto & Tire’s facility has been used as an automotive repair shop for the past century.
Distributed in North America, Lusid’s GenRock features more than 90,000 formulations, spectrophotometer, worldwide color match capability---and a lifetime warranty.
Runge’s Auto & Tire employs 13 automotive and collision repair specialists who repair an average of 120 vehicles each month. The I-CAR Gold shop does not participate in any DRPs, but in addition to offering collision repair services, the shop offers full-service mechanical repairs, completed by their ASE-certified mechanics.
The Runges ensure they are environmentally compliant by enlisting the services of a local environmental specialist who provides feedback and makes recommendations on a regular basis.
The shop is also involved with local youth through Little League sponsorships, and Sobczak feels that focusing on the next generation is important as it pertains specifically to the automotive and collision repair industries as well.
“One of the issues we’ve seen is a lack of qualified help; new techs just aren’t receiving the training they need, but everyone seems to have the same problem,” he said. “There are a lot of changes constantly happening in this industry, and small businesses like ours won’t survive if we don’t adapt. Switching to Lusid was definitely a step in the right direction!”
