Spanesi Hosts Company Founder at U.S. Grand Opening

Orazio Spanesi visits U.S. subsidiary in Naperville, Ill.

Spanesi SpA, an Italy-based manufacturer of automotive repair equipment, hosted company founder Orazio Spanesi for the company’s U.S. grand opening in Naperville, Ill.

From the time he repaired his first car at the age of 14, Spanesi knew he wanted to be a collision repair technician. In 1969, he opened his first repair center based on a passion for the craft and customer. That same commitment to collision repair and its technicians is what led to the creation of Spanesi SpA 20 years later.

“My passion for this work has never changed," said Spanesi. "We are dedicated to finding new solutions and new technologies to make collision repair faster and safer for the technician."

Leaders from the various segments of the industry and government joined in the day’s events. Attendees were given tours of the new facility and demonstrations of the product lines while enjoying live music and an assortment of catered foods.

“Today is an exciting day for not only myself, but the industry as a whole,” said Timothy Morgan, managing director. “Not only does Spanesi offer the best products for our industry, but a commitment to family business and business practices that mirror those of the repairers in the U.S.”

Spanesi SpA’s U.S. subsidiary, Spanesi Americas, includes corporate offices, a training center and product showroom. The company’s product lines include straightening benches, mini-benches, touch electronic measuring systems, vacuum systems, welding machines, infrared lamps, vehicle lifts, painting tools, spraybooth equipment, pneumatic tools, electric tools and hydraulic tools.
