Spanesi Americas announced that it has expanded its building footprint and doubled both the warehouse and training space. The expansion project includes the addition to its existing office building, expansion of the warehouse dedicated to storing parts for both spraybooths and measuring systems, and the dedication of a single area for training on all of the products, new and existing. The additional dock and loading area has been expanded to address the need for loading multiple simultaneous shipments.

“When I started this project in 2012, I knew the products Spanesi had to offer were what the U.S. and Canadian collision repair markets were looking for, and the response has been extraordinary,” said Tim Morgan, managing director for Spanesi Americas. “This has allowed us to be able to expand our facility in such a short time to meet the needs of our customers.”

With its focus on products that are growing fastest in the market, Spanesi expects to increase overall shipment capacity by nearly 20 percent, while adding approximately 35 jobs in North America.

The company has also increased inventory to enhance its just-in-time delivery system.
