3D Auto Body & Collision Centers President David Niestroy announced the addition of 3D’s sixth location in the Greater Philadelphia market.
3D’s newest facility is located in Conshohocken, Pa., and will employ Symach European technology that uses a catalytic generator, mixing oxygen and hydrogen. Using this technology, drying times for paint, primer and body filler are reduced from almost an hour down to seconds with paint fully cured in less than a minute.
“We have always been at the forefront of the latest technology here at 3D,” said Niestroy. “Although this project has a much larger scope, we believe this will enable us to provide customers and insurance partners something they cannot obtain anywhere else in the region.”
The 24,000-square-foot shop will include 26 bays with two sterile aluminum repair areas and will be set up to produce 120 repairs per week. The shop will include a Symach FixLine conveyor with six robots. The large office area will feature private offices for customers and insurance partners to conduct business.
“It all comes down to who can repair the vehicle faster while keeping quality and safety paramount and costs contained by reducing overall cycle time,” said Craig Camacho, 3D’s vice president of Marketing & Business Development.
The shop is slated to be fully operational by the beginning of the fourth quarter of 2016.
