Symach announces new ‘super shop’

Symach and DCR Systems have announced the launch of new super-shop, the culmination of a two-year partnership combining both company’s strengths to create ‘tomorrow’s workshop’.

Lindsay Honda/Acura Auto Body is a 30,000 sqft super shop situated in Columbus, Ohio.

Michael Giarrizzo, CEO and president of DCR Systems, said: “It’s truly unlike what anyone has ever seen. It’s really a super shop of the future taking in the full thought processes of both Symach and DCR Systems and changes the way collision repair work has typically been done.”

Steve Lindsay, vice president of Lindsay Honda/Acura, said: “What we like about DCR Systems and Symach was the fact that they have been able to systemize and streamline all of the different variables involved in collision repair and employ their processes. We will now be able to provide our clients a faster and higher-quality collision repair offering that’s done in a more predictable environment and with less energy use. This certainly aligns with our business principles.”

The new Columbus, OH collision repair facility, which is affiliated with one of the country’s largest Honda and Acura dealers, utilizes Symach’s equipment and technology along with DCR Systems’ proprietary process-based production system. This facility is operated by DCR Systems and includes Symach’s FixLine repair process as well as the Symach Paint Application (SAP) Process.

Osvaldo Bergaglio, CEO of Symach, said: “This synergy helps Lindsay Honda/Acura eliminate many of the inefficiencies associated with auto body repairs and ensures employees can operate the machinery in the most high-performing way. Together, we have created a world-class collision shop.”
