Final of the Best Painter Contest, R-M names the Best Painter winner for France !
On December 4th 2019, the jury of the 14th edition of the R-M Best Painter Contest named the national winner for France. Eight finalists went head to head after they were selected from the 65 applicants from all regions of France. Paint manufacturer BASF, as well as distributors, partner equipment manufacturers, painters who had reached the final and their bosses… the whole sector was in attendance to wrap up the 2019 contest.
This year’s central theme: the bodyshop of the future, encompassing technological, digital and environmental innovations. Due consideration of environmental impact, which is increasingly unavoidable, adds a new dimension for the auto refinish trade. It represents an additional aspect for young professionals who will be able to implement wider use of eco-repairs and contribute to conserving the planet.
“Beyond representing the bodyshop of the future and everything that it represents, the Best Painter Contest is the tangible expression of R-M's commitment to training and employing young people. We care about recognising talented young painters, helping them to evolve and promoting a trade that is struggling with recruitment right across France. The standard of the entrants in 2019 was particularly high and rewards our efforts,” commented Erwan Baudimant, Regional Business Manager for BASF
