Director / Sales Manager & Accounting
I’ve been in the Auto industry for over 40 years, which has let me get qualified as a 310S, 310T, Propane tech, and as well a Natural Gas tech. Have had my own business, worked for International Harvester, General Motors, Chrysler, Toyota, auto/marine tech in Newfoundland. Have trained techs in Ghana Africa to repair garbage trucks set up routes and learn how to drive and operate them. This whole life adventure started with my apprentice ship at Erb Transport in New Hamburg back in 1978.
This brings us here to the years 2017 until now where I have been able to develop a LRP which is a labour recovery program to help shop owners recover costs for repairs to return vehicles, when there is no means to recover costs.

Rick (Richard) Collins
I have grown up in the automotive industry with my dad and siblings. My father had a Doctor of Mechanics trade license not held by many. My dad owned his own business where me and my brothers learned about the trade, as well pumped gas and cleaned windshields and had a great time with all the customers over the years. My hobbies over the years have been building and customizing Cars and Trucks. To this day I’m still in the industry working for a large company in the truck tire industry.
