Symach has installed its versatile FixStation product in five Carglass branches in Belgium.
They include Ans, Anvers, Drogenbos, Hasselt and Charleroi. Each location now contains a double cabin as well as a paint mixing station.
Carglass, a vehicle glass repair and replacement company, currently operates in 34 countries worldwide and is part of the Belron family. Part of Carglass’s long-term growth strategy includes offering auto body repair to its customers in Belgium and Luxembourg.
Stefaan Hermans, operations director, said, ‘Our ultimate goal is to become the natural choice for glass and car body repair and replacement. As Carglass continues to expand its business and begins to offer auto body repair work to customers, Symach products will be an important part of our growth.’
In April of this year, Carglass acquired 15 additional locations in Belgium from Care. Two of the locations were already using Symach equipment. Hermans said it was a natural decision to purchase the new FixStations following the acquisition.
‘We want to be top of mind for our customers so we can solve their problems and make it very convenient for them to have their vehicle repaired. We feel that Symach offers professional equipment that is efficient and delivers high productivity.’
Describing FixStation, Osvaldo Bergaglio, CEO of Symach, said, ‘One multi-skilled technician can perform an average of four to six repairs per day without moving the vehicle, resulting in one repair every one and half or two hours.’
