First Guiness World Record for an Auto Body Shop?

At Almost Everything Auto Body we were flabbergasted when this plaque arrived via our friend Mike Camicia and his cabal of students & ne'er-do-wells. Mike is the local racing legend & Gunn High Auto Tech Instructor.

Mike & team won the award racing their their Pizza Planet Delivery truck (a replica of the cartoon version from the movie Toy Story.) According to Guiness, "Almost Everything Team Pizza Planet participated in the following record event: The most participants in a car race was 216 cars at an event organized by John "Jay" Lamm and The 24 Hours of Lemons racing series (USA) at Thunderhills (SIC) raceway park, California, USA on the 13-14 September 2014."

Almost Everything's admittedly small part in the adventure was sponsorship and moral support.

Almost Everything Autobody Recognized by PG&E for Energy Efficiency

Pacific Gas & Electric Company Energy Solutions Engineer Eric Noller says, "you (Almost Everything Autobody) have recently done a thorough lighting retrofit of both the shop and office areas. The new T5 lighting is an excellent choice and is one of the most efficient commercially available options on the market. The new fixtures also provide great light quality for the work you are doing."

"Other than lighting, the primary source of energy consumption is the painting equipment. This is specialized equipment that should not be modified due to the need to maintain quality and production, as well as for safety purposes." Eric concludes, "Overall, you are doing a good job in staying energy efficient. . . There are no major recommendations to be made at this time." Thanks Eric. We appreciate the time you spent reviewing our operations and for re-affirming our green credentials.

Last year Almost Everything Autobody was named a PG&E Community Hero for participation in the SmartAC energy conservation program. We work to continually improve processes and reduce our impact on the environment. In 2007 we converted to ultra-efficient lighting. In 2008 we installed super-efficient filtering to keep 99.5+ percent of paint pollutants from escaping into the atmosphere. In 2009 Almost Everything Autobody introduced ultra-low VOC and "waterborne" paints to virtually eliminate smog-causing pollutants. In 2010 we converted our primer processes from sprayed to rolled-on. This process change dramatically reduced health hazards to employees and waste streams. In 2011 we converted our landscaping to drought tolerant plants to eliminate the need for watering.

The way we see it, efficiency translates into reduced costs--if it is both cheaper and better for our kids, what's not to love?

Almost Everything Autobody–Community Hero

October 29, 2011, San Francisco–Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) names Almost Everything Autobody a "Community Hero" for its participation in a groundbreaking energy conservation program. Almost Everything Autobody allows PG&E to remotely turn off its air conditioning when demand spikes. In its thank you letter, PG&E said that Almost Everything Autobody's participation in the program helped "ensure the grid's reliability for communities across California. . . When less electricity is generated from fossil fuel plants during peak times, fewer greenhouse gases are produced. This means cleaner air for everyone." PG&E reports that the program saved enough energy to power 84,000 homes!

Almost Everything Autobody is proud of our green credentials. In addition to our participation in the PG&E program we work to continually improve our processes and reduce our impact on the environment:

  • 2007 Converted facility to ultra-efficient lighting
  • 2008 Installed new paint booth with super efficient filtering to keep 99.5+% of paint pollutants from escaping into atmosphere
  • 2008 Converted to low VOC paints to reduce smog causing chemicals
  • 2009 Converted to premium, ultra-low VOC paints to further reduce smog causing chemicals while improving paint performance
  • 2009 Introduced latest "waterborne" paints in our "Factory Platinum" line to virtually eliminate VOCs with the best paints in the industry
  • 2010 Joined PG&E SmartAC Program to reduce energy consumption
  • 2010 Converted 90% of primer processes from sprayed-on to rolled-on. Process change reduced VOCs, health hazards to employees and waste streams
  • 2011 Converted landscaping to drought tolerant plants to eliminate need for watering
Almost Everything Autobody encourages you to participate too! For more information visit:   www.pge.com
