MATRI-X believes in our industry. We think that the “secret” knowledge of repair and restoration techniques that used to only be passed on from technician to technician should be available toeveryone. Only through this can the reputation, profitability and dependability of our industry be established in the future. Both Kian & Doug recognize this, and to promote this they have published articles within industry periodicals that speak honestly about trying to create and maintain a profitable repair or restoration business. Their articles give a glimpse into how we approach learning at MATRI-X, how we value continuing learning for everyone in our field, and some of the practices and techniques that we discuss in our training seminars.
