For this capstone project, research was conducted to develop a long-range plan that investigated and analyzed an automotive collision repair and restoration shop. The goal is to discover more sustainable practices and plans for cementing its longevity. The shop is a family business where the owner and manager will be presented with a plan of action ready for implementation in the future. The inspiration for this topic came from the realization that the family automotive collision repair and restoration shop has been present throughout the researcher’s entire life, in addition to how multiple elements of the business can be improved to benefit both the environment and business success. This is a long-range plan because the beneficial alterations to the infrastructure and operations will consume a great deal of time and money to bring to fruition. Much of this will be made possible with the plan to organize and execute of the full-on conversion to solely operating as a restoration shop with the exception of collision repair service offered to key customers as a way to retain this sector of the customer base. All facets of the business must be properly addressed for a sustainable future to be possible. This long-range plan focused on the most effective and optimal solutions that must be established to reduce waste, increase energy efficiency, allocate resources more effectively, establish operational longevity for the business, and promote the services and quality of work offered by the business.
