Ring and Goolsby were present at NORTHEAST BASF’s platinum sponsor stand.

“I came to NORTHEAST 2022 to represent BASF, but I got a lot out of it,” said Ring, a first-time NORTHEAST attendee. “Ringbrothers isn’t just a hot rod store; We also offer collision repair, but we’re not as exposed to new technology as what’s available at the show, so it was fun to check out some of the new tools and equipment that we might find useful. I was pleasantly surprised by everything I learned during the event. Some of the conversations I had with body shop professionals helped me realize that I was lacking money in my own shop. I came to New Jersey hoping for a simple date, but my expectations were exceeded – I feel like I should have paid BASF to let me represent them!

Goolsby agreed. “The greatest thing about coming to NORTHEAST for me is interacting with all of the companies that are in the collision industry. There are a lot of tools and equipment bouncing around in the hot rod world, so we can Also use a lot of these products at our end of the world Add to that seeing the people and learning all the knowledge offered in the classes during the show and it’s an awesome show in every way.

Ryan Evans added, “I know Lift King has done very well and I’ve heard other sellers say the same. More industry professionals were walking the floor, and they were all happy to be there. Participants’ optimistic attitudes indicated that they were all genuinely having fun…or just happy not to be in their office. It was a great event.”
