NWRA and AGRR Magazine to Survey Windshield Repair Industry

AGRR magazine and NWRA have announced a cooperative research project to provide a benchmark survey of industry ratios and other information for the windshield repair industry and for windshield repair profit centers in auto glass replacement and body shops. Survey results will be available free of charge to all NWRA members who participate.

"This survey is designed to help repair companies compare themselves against industry statistics," said NWRA president Paul Syfko. "It's hard to know how you are doing unless you know how others are doing."

The survey will also provide information about how much the average repair company spends on labor, materials, advertising and marketing, owner compensation and more. This survey will be repeated every two years and historical information about the industry kept as well.

Members of the repair industry should watch their mail for a survey form in the later part of November. All information will be pooled and no information connected with your company will ever be released or even kept. If you would like to participate in the survey you can sign up online at www.agrrmag.com/register.php by October 25, 2004.
