the constantly changing technology that takes place in the paint
industry, Ed has been outstanding as we have evolved through the
years, with today's more environmentally friendly materials
requiring constant education and re-tooling," said Baber.
"I can honestly say that Ed is a magician when it comes to
applying and matching today's myriad of tints and colors. Also, the
sheer cost of materials today has made his position one of utmost
importance; these new advanced colors have prices that are
astronomical compared to a few years ago. Ed has been able to not
only keep up with the technology, but he has always had a very
positive attitude, and is extremely cooperative in a critical area
of our operation".
continued: "Our body and paint facility is recognized by all
of our customers to be excellent, not just very good. In fact,
many times repairs are announced as having been performed here in
our shop, and our buyer base understands that if we did the work,
they can trust that it was done to the highest standards. Obviously,
Ed's skill and talents are a large part of this quality, and he is
part of a core group within our body and paint shop, managed by Don
Wright, that have many, many years of experience here at State
Garrity with the members of State Line Auto Auction's skilled
and close-knit body and paint shop.

very cooperative with one another, and Ed Garrity is the final touch
that makes their work so valuable. We congratulate Ed on this
milestone and thank him for being such a great employee."
