are where we were 25 years ago."
Wanstrath trained more than 30 body shops during his 10-day stay

the reduced costs for insurance companies.
Likewise, Wanstrath says insurance companies in Malaysia saw an

environmental benefits repair brings to their country. Now who's
25 years behind?" says Wanstrath.
