New AutoRaise Platinum Partner, DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing, pledge their support for a skilled future.

AutoRaise is delighted to welcome iconic spraygun manufacturer DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing, as a Platinum Partner.

As pioneers of innovative technology, DeVilbiss are committed to promoting the world of vehicle refinish as a highly skilled and exciting career. With an enviable following on social media and an outstanding reputation for quality DeVilbiss are a fantastic new addition to the AutoRaise Platinum Partner line-up and proudly true to their tagline – ‘British Manufactured – Globally Recognised’.

“Having witnessed the tremendous work carried out by Bob and the AutoRaise team, we are very excited to join them as Platinum Partners in support of this worthy cause,” said Tarek Husain, Marketing Manager EMEI – DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing. “The Vehicle Repair industry offers such a wide variety of unique and progressive career opportunities and all of us at DeVilbiss Automotive Refinishing share a passion for highlighting the work and talent of skilled spray painters around the world.

“Along with AutoRaise, we believe it’s time to shine a light on all this industry has to offer, and strive to encourage, support and grow new industry talent for the future.”

Bob Linwood, CEO, AutoRaise, said, “Our newest Platinum Partner brings future-proof products and innovative thinking to the AutoRaise Platinum Partner network.

“With a growing audience of young people who we are trying to attract in to our industry, there is no more iconic piece of equipment for the vehicle repair industry than the Spraygun. The partnership with DeVilbiss will prove to be an important one for us both as we look at joint initiatives to make more young people aware of our industry and the tools of the trade that they will be accustomed to using.

“2018 has already brought significant growth in repairer engagement and demand for and roll-out of delivery of the AutoRaise Multi-skilled Apprenticeship Standard – so the support and market knowledge of leading, global brands such as DeVilbiss is vital.”

It’s essential that the industry gets behind addressing the skills shortage, whether it be taking on new apprentices, hosting Industry Showcase Events or simply helping to spread the word.
