Spanesi Americas recently announced another addition to the team. Steve Smith from Plant City, Fla., and his staff are joining the Spanesi Distribution Network.

Smith has been selling, servicing, and training collision repair shops on structural repair equipment and welders in the Florida and Caribbean markets for close to 40 years. He and his group will operate under the new name of Automotive Collision Equipment (ACE) of Florida.

“I have had a long friendship with Steve of over 19 years, and have seen his dedication to the customer and industry when we worked together for almost 15 years,” said Timothy Morgan, managing director of Spanesi Americas. “He fits into our values of dedication to customer service and support. I myself have learned from Steve and his knowledge of repairs and the customer experience.”

Smith joins the Spanesi distribution network that has included his son Tony, from Atlanta, since 2013. This expands the Smiths’ area to cover the complete Southeastern region.

“I have been looking at equipment my whole lifetime and keeping up with industry repair trends, and Spanesi’s dedication to correct repairs, equipment, training, and the overall customer experience is a good fit for today and the future,” said Smith. “I had the opportunity to visit the factory in Italy, and the facility, process and people are amazing. I am proud to be able to bring the complete Spanesi line to my customers and territory. I am looking forward to being a single-source supplier for measuring systems, benches, welders and spraybooths.”

Smith and ACE already have a complete warehouse and training center in Plant City, Fla., that has been transitioning to the SPANESI Southeastern Region Training Center. In addition, branch offices have been established to complete the groups’ network.
