Join SCWA in thanking all our small business owners for their contributions to our economy and country. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create about two out of every three new jobs in the U.S. each year. Every year since 1963, the President of the United States has issued a proclamation announcing National Small Business Week, which recognizes the critical contributions of America’s entrepreneurs and small business owners like those in the car wash industry. National Small Business Week begins this Sunday, April 30.

Wanted to let all car washers know - we have been getting reports that newer GMC trucks and Toyota Tundras are subject to denting in the rear when going through the conveyors. The explanation is that bracing has been taken out of the back to make the trucks lighter and better meet fuel guidelines. Brushes and other equipment contacting the back end can cause denting. Please let us know your comments.

SCWA was proud to honor Jim Coleman and John Jurkens with the 2017 SCWA Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2017 SCWA Convention & EXPO. During the ceremonies a video highlighting the life and careers of both were presented. We have had many requests to see the videos. Here is the link to the SCWA YouTube channel with the Jim Coleman presentation. Next week we will have the link to the John Jurkens presentation.
