Repairer Driven News

About Us

Kentwood, Mich.-based Repairer Driven News (RDN) was founded and curated by the Society of Collision Repair Specialists as the leading source of news and information that matters to the collision repairer.

RDN was formed to provide news and information from a vantage point that would unabashedly be catered to those in the collision repair business. Our stories and focus will not be influenced by anything other than keeping the businesses that perform collision repair connected to the information that matters most to them. We believe that a well-informed industry is a more viable industry, so we worked to develop more personalized experiences that allow our followers to customize how their information is accessed and announced. We believe that “connecting the dots” is important, and that stories should contain more than just what is happening, but also foster an understanding of why it matters. We will provide this focused information in a more streamlined manner that promotes flexibility and connectivity through a website and custom mobile application designed to efficiently provide access to original content and reports from other existing sources in one industry-leading destination.  Our vision is one where collision repair businesses are empowered by the information at their fingertips.
