Global Finishing Solutions Partners with Lincoln Tech for Collision Repair Technician Training

OSSEO, Wis. — Dedicated to helping expand the automotive refinish workforce, Global Finishing Solutions (GFS) is proud to collaborate with Lincoln Tech to train the next wave of collision repair technicians.

Through a new partnership, GFS is working with Lincoln Tech to help produce qualified, entry-level collision repair technicians and connect them with an array of career opportunities. Lincoln Tech students across the country are learning the ins and outs of collision repair in GFS paint booths, preparing for an auto body career via hands-on programs taught by ASE-certified instructors.

Lincoln Tech also offers a custom design and fabrication program through their Kindig Academy, an advanced, six-week training program at the Denver campus for those with industry experience looking to take their skills to the next level. GFS is a longtime partner with Dave Kindig and Kindig-It Design, the famed custom vehicle builder with a sprawling shop outside Salt Lake City that includes GFS equipment.

Two side downdraft paint booths and a paint mix room from GFS were recently installed at Lincoln Tech’s Denver location. GFS equipment will next be installed at Lincoln Tech’s NADC campus in Nashville. Lincoln’s Tech’s collision repair and refinishing program is also offered at the following campuses:

  • East Windsor, CT
  • Grand Prairie, TX
  • Indianapolis, IN
  • Melrose Park, IL

GFS will train Lincoln Tech instructors on its short wave electric infrared technology, REVO Accelerated Curing Systems, at all Lincoln Tech campuses. Local GFS distributors will also provide parts and filters support to each Lincoln Tech location.

“Working with industry-standard equipment and materials is a key component of hands-on career training,” said Scott Shaw, President and CEO of Lincoln Tech. “For Global Finishing Solutions — one of the most respected names in the automotive refinishing field — to provide booths and materials to support our campuses adds tremendous value to our collision repair and refinishing programs. We’re very grateful for their commitment and dedication to helping build a new generation of industry professionals.”
