Global Finishing Solutions Strikes New Partnership Program with 1Collision Network & CSN Collision Centres

OSSEO, Wis. — Striving to meet the unique needs of every customer across the globe with pre-engineered and custom solutions for the preparation, application, curing and storage of paint and coatings, Global Finishing Solutions (GFS) is excited to announce a new partnership program with 1Collision Network and CSN Collision Centres.

With a combined 240 locations across North America, Milwaukee-based 1Collision and Canada-based CSN offer a unified collision repair experience to consumers and claims management solutions to insurance companies. They provide coast-to-coast coverage in their respective markets, known for outstanding customer service and high-quality repairs.

Founded in 2001, 1Collision is an organization of independent and dealer-owned collision repair businesses, offering corporate-level support in all aspects of collision repair center operations. Founded in 2002, CSN shops repair more than 200,000 vehicles a year, helping Canadians get back on the road with the trust and comfort of knowing their vehicle has been returned to like-new condition.

Under this new partnership program, GFS will provide 1Collision and CSN affiliates with lifelong support and service of industry-leading finishing equipment and technologies that improve paint finish quality, increase throughput and exceed performance requirements. 1Collision and CSN affiliates can also take advantage of GFS’ expansive distribution network — which provides consulting, training, installation, service, maintenance and aftermarket support on a local level.

“As the preferred provider of finishing equipment for 1Collision and CSN affiliates, we are confident the support, expertise and stability of GFS will strengthen their presence in their respective markets, while giving them the equipment and finishing solutions needed to elevate their business,” said Jim Faragher, President of GFS.
