Symach installed in Ontario bodyshop

Symach has installed its futuristic technology and equipment at Better Image collision repair facility in Ontario, Canada.

“I wanted to build the perfect facility,” said Josh Kazdan, owner of Better Image Collision. “With Symach technology and equipment, we can be the provider of choice and employer of choice. Our shop looks and operates drastically different than other shops. I truly believe this was the only way to go, given that the playing field has changed before our very eyes. I wanted to be prepared for the future of the collision industry.”

Speed was a factor in Kazdan’s decision to purchase Symach equipment. Not only will it help the shop keep up with the demands of insurance companies, the equipment will also enable the facility to repair cars quicker for out-of-pocket customers. The patented drying process ensures there is a concrete repair from the beginning stages to the final product.

“Our customers don’t want to wait four or five days to have their car tied up in a body shop,” Kazdan said. “Utilizing Symach equipment, we can now provide one-day repairs on small collision jobs. Quicker turnaround and less rental days, mean happier customers.”

The facility uses Symach’s FixLine system, which includes two filler bays, the SprayTron prep stall, a FlyDry robot and an oversized mixing room. The nine-meter paint booth has side-load doors and is equipped with an EasyDry robot.

The shop also has a carwash detailing bay, two Symach frame machines and in-ground hoists, so technicians don’t have to crawl on the floor to work.

Kazdan added: “Having the best equipment means we can throw a huge volume of vehicles into our shop, repair them to the highest standards and never bottleneck the system. This machine is hungry and can handle anything we throw at it with ease.”
