HD Repair Forum Forms Committees For Issues In Industry

The HD Repair Forum, a gathering of the heavy-duty collision repair industry executives and leaders, has formed four committees to address issues in the industry: Education, Technology, Parts and OEM Repair Standards.

More information regarding each of the committees will be presented during the 2020 HD Repair Forum, to be held from 24-25 March in Fort Worth, Texas, and will be co-chaired by leaders from various segments of the market.
