Paint & Panel Autobody Awards 2020

With another year almost over, Paint & Panel have again selected the cream of the crop to be presented prestigious awards on behalf of the automotive repair industry for the 2020 Paint & Panel Autobody Awards. Competition is always fierce, and even with the impacts of lock-downs being felt across the country, there were lots of deserving candidates Australia wide.

APG have been lucky enough to have contributed to the success of the several of the nominees and winners, and we’d first like to congratulate all of the nominees and winners of Paint & Panel’s 2020 Autobody Awards.

We all know success is earned, and not handed out, so we’ve taken some time to chat to some of the winners and see how they achieved industry excellence.

Damage Control Accident Repair Centre

Axalta Business Excellence Awards

Paint & Panel describe the Axalta Business Excellence Award as “all about building a better future for your business and creating a better environment for your staff to ensure that your business stands the test of time.” That means only proactive businesses with great staff retention/development plans, business intelligence programs and diverse business offerings were considered top candidates for this award.

Damage Control Accident Repair Centre embodied every aspect of the Axalta Business Excellence Awards with their innovative vertical approach to vehicle repair, incorporating accident repair, spray painting, vehicle servicing and tyre fitting.

Flow Autobody

Digital Excellence

The Digital Excellence Award celebrates businesses that have embraced the push for a more connected digital footprint, including high quality social media channel use, and thoughtful use of digital integration to enhance their business performance.

Flow Autobody are clear leaders in the implementation of digital communication platforms. Flow Autobody’s industry-leading approach to social media highlights their business ideology, quality of work and facilitates transparent communication with their customers. As customers become more informed, it gives repairers more opportunity to speak directly to consumers and influence the preferred repairer segment of accident repairs. Having a digital presence like Flow Autobody builds trust and confidence, all without having anyone step into their shed.

Repairhub Banyo

Best Corporate Shop

The Best Corporate Shop Award is hugely competitive, with the titans of the autobody industry battling it out to prove their supremacy. This year Repairhub has taken the honours, with their unrivalled level of shop presentation, work flow, process orientation and efficiencies.

APG have spoken with Veronica Jory, Head of People Experience, to learn about Repairhub’s three pillars of business, how those enable success and their vision for the autobody repair future.

The Rebate


We wanted to do something special for Christmas this year, to fight back against the abysmal year we’ve all had. It needed to be special, tasty and support independent locals, like us. So we reached out to our friends at the award winning Brendale Brewing Company to produce a special batch of their Linkfield lager for a selection of our customers.

We call it The Rebate.

Read all about it, click here – The Rebate – Brendale Brewing Co. X Auto Parts Group.

Together with another independent certified, Brendale Brewing Co., we made a beer this year for Christmas.
