Symach announced that is has equipped a new bodyshop, CSN 427 Auto Collision in Toronto, Canada.
‘We incorporated Symach technology in our facility because the quality behind the Symach process helps us with efficiency,’ said Lorenzo D’Alessandro, president of CSN 427 Auto Collision. ‘By utilizing Symach equipment, we can reduce our cycle time while streamlining our process so that we have a more consistent and predictable outcome. With predictability, comes better flow in the shop and less stress.’
‘We are excited to offer our new repair process to CSN 427 Auto Collision,’ said Osvaldo Bergaglio, founder of Symach. ‘Lorenzo and his brothers operate a progressive bodyshop in Canada, and by using the FixLine system, it will reduce cycle time by two days.’
Lorenzo’s father, Ralph, founded the body shop more than 45 years ago in a 2,500sqft facility near the 427 highway, which prompted Ralph to name the business 427 Auto Collision. Lorenzo began helping at the shop when he was a teenager and by 1982 he was working there full-time.
As the company grew, they decided to purchase the building next door so they could expand their operations. Since then, Lorenzo has operated the 95,000sqft facility with his brothers Frank, VP of operations, and John, VP of sales.
In 2002, Lorenzo, along with three other successful collision repair owners, co-founded CSN Collision Centres.
A few years ago, one of his partners at CSN Collision Centres was installing Symach equipment at his shop (CSN Cars in Burlington, ON) and Lorenzo wanted to learn more. After visiting the operation many times and watching the Symach process first-hand, all three of the D’Alessandro brothers were impressed with the innovation behind the technology and decided to incorporate the equipment in their facility.
The team at CSN 427 Auto Collision is focused on repairing vehicles properly and getting car owners back on the road safely. ‘Our priority is to continuously learn and improve. We pride ourselves on staying up-to-date with training, certifications and embracing new technology such as the Symach system,’ Lorenzo added.
