Symach, the Italian bespoke bodyshop builders, which attended the Auto Trade EXPO in Dublin last October is creating quite a stir in the United States.
The Italian-based company offers a wide range of high-quality equipment and patented technology aimed at increasing productivity and efficiency in body shops. There are currently 56 shops using the company’s innovative FixLine process in Australia, North America, Europe and the Middle East.
Dave Niestroy of 3D Auto Body & Collision Centers is a huge fan of the Italian company. He commented: “In February of 2015, I was introduced to the Symach system and I knew instantaneously that was the future of the collision repair business and I had to be part of it!” said Niestroy, who operates in West Chester, Spring City, Oxford, Haverford, Wayne, Drexel Hill and their new location in Conshohocken where the Symach equipment was recently installed.
“This technology gives us something that none of our competitors have—we can dry body filler, primer, sealer, waterborne base coat and clear coat in minutes not hours,” said Niestroy. “I know it sounds crazy, but we can paint vehicles in minutes with this technology.”
Prior to using this technology, he said it took up to three or more hours to complete the same process, which now takes just over an hour. “This technology works 100 times more efficiently than I could have ever imagined,” he said.
The original plan was to purchase Symach equipment for their fifth location in Wayne, located on what is referred to as “the mainline.” “This is the premier location for any business,” said Niestroy. 3D also purchased two additional properties adjacent to the Wayne location, totaling nearly two acres. The intention was to demolish the existing building and construct a new, state-of-the-art collision repair mega center. After six months of meetings and working with architects and engineers, they couldn’t get the shop approved to be built in that location.
Symach recently expanded to the US market two years ago. For more information about Symach and the company’s products, contact: email@example.com www.symach.com
