Spanesi Americas recently welcomed Ron Coan in the role of spray products specialist.

Coan comes to Spanesi with more than 35 years of experience spent mostly inside spraybooths. His expertise in the automotive coatings industry has provided him multiple opportunities to paint concept vehicles (including the Cadillac 16), one-of-a-kind prototype vehicles (such as the Bizzarini 5300 SI Spyder), Ford SEMA cars, Jeff Gordon’s Axalta paint scheme race cars for Hendrick Motorsports and even historical vehicles including the Bi-Autogo.

Coan has also been a cast member for two nationally distributed TV programs featuring vehicle builds and “one-off” vehicle restorations.

“I understand the importance and the value that a great spraybooth can provide to a repair facility,” Coan said. “Spanesi creates high-quality, high-performance spraybooths that produce amazing results. I’m ready to use of the knowledge that I have accumulated throughout my career and work for a company that goes out of their way to help customers and painters. Spanesi is a great company with extremely knowledgeable people. I’m proud to be joining a team like that.”

Timothy Morgan, COO and managing director of Spanesi Americas, added: “Ron’s experience on the paint side of the automotive industry is second to none. Ron has had a distinguished and notable career with over 35 years in the industry. Adding Ron and his experience to the world-class team at Spanesi Americas is priceless. We are excited to add Ron to the shop design, production efficiency and facility operations teams to bring more and more value to our distinguished customers.”

Spanesi Americas continues to grow within the North America market, and 2018 is expected to be another high-growth year for the organization, the company said.
