Symach, a company that was established in Bologna, Italy, in 2001 with the goal of creating fast paint drying methods, has sold its first North American body shop in Burlington (Toronto) to CARS of Nick DiLuca, partner of CSN, a group with more than 330 body shops in Canada.
The new shop will be operational in November and will be built entirely with Symach equipment and with the FixLine formula, which Symach claims increases productivity by two repairs per week for each available technician, with an average completion rate of 1.5 days from the date of acceptance. The process of preparation, painting and drying is automated with Symach robots.
The new shop will repair 50 cars a week, reducing the cost of repair around 25 percent, Symach claims, and reducing the key-to-key time to 1.5 days on average for more than 80 percent of the repairs.
“I know Nick well, and I would say that we also became friends in the past three years. In fact, Nick spent the last three years comparing our equipment and our body shop formulas with those available on the market,” said Symach CEO Osvaldo Bergaglio. “Once all the checks were done, Nick thought that Symach resulted in the best in knowledge and design of the repair process, as well as for quality, cost and aesthetic design of the equipment.
“I personally started a little over a year ago to promote Symach in North America, and this first result is very important to guarantee us a bright future, which is why I am investing in Toronto with the opening of a Symach store for the sale of products and for maintenance service. I want to do the best for my friends because, from the past several years, I have not only made customers but friends. And it’s much more difficult to please them!”
Added Nick DiLuca, “We are very excited about being the first shop in Canada to install the Symach system in our shop. The product is light years ahead of its competitors. We at CSN Cars are confident it will reduce our key-to-key time drastically and enhance our customers’ experience.”
