Symach announced that it has formed a strategic partnership with DCR (Diversified Collision Repair) Systems.
As part of the new collaboration, the two companies will combine its strengths to build what Symach CEO Osvaldo Bergaglio refers to as ‘tomorrow’s workshop.’
‘It’s clearly a relationship that will allow us to develop tomorrow’s workshops and utilize the strengths of each company not only to put together the ‘super shop’ but also the ‘super team’ to operate it,’ said Michael Giarrizzo, CEO and president of DCR Systems. ‘It’s exciting to be on the cutting edge and be able to work with another forward-thinking company.’
Founded in 2001, Symach offers a complete range of body shop equipment for the collision repair industry, including its unique FixLine repair process, and DryTronic robotic technology.
DCR Systems was founded in 2004 and is owned by Michael and partners. The Ohio and Atlanta-based business sets up accident repair facilities based on lean manufacturing principles for automotive dealerships looking to outsource its operations.
Moving forward, Symach plans to sell new collision repair facilities in the USA market that will operate under the DCR standard model. In addition, DCR Systems will offer a turn-key franchise-like model for dealers. In both scenarios, Symach equipment will be utilized and training will be provided.
Both Symach and DCR Systems focus on continuous workflow in the bodyshop and a process-centered environment. The goal is to ensure the team understands the required pace so that the steps of the process are interdependent and have to work in sequence. The desired outcome is to have all of the vehicles go through the shop interrupted and ensure they are repaired in a very predictable amount of time.
