Spanesi Completes Building Expansion

Spanesi Completes Building Expansion Project

Spanesi says this expansion comes on the heels of an overwhelming response to the company's products, processes and training systems.

spanesi-interior-shotsNAPERVILLE, Ill. – Spanesi Americas announced it has expanded its building footprint and doubled both the warehouse and training space. Spanesi SpA is a leading international producer of automotive repair equipment and manufacturer of effective body shop solutions.

The U.S. expansion project includes an addition to the company’s existing office building, expansion of the warehouse dedicated to storing parts for both spray booths and measuring systems and the dedication of a single area for training on all of the products, new and existing. An additional dock and loading area has been expanded to address the need for loading multiple simultaneous shipments.

Spanesi says this expansion comes on the heels of an overwhelming response to the company’s products, processes and training systems.

SPANESI-logo “When I started this project in 2012 I knew the products Spanesi had to offer were what the U.S. and Canadian collision repair markets were looking for and the response has been extraordinary,” said Tim Morgan, managing director for Spanesi Americas. “This has allowed us to be able to expand our facility in such a short time to meet the needs of our customers.”

With its focus on products that are growing fastest in the market, Spanesi expects to increase overall shipment capacity by nearly 20 percent, while adding approximately 35 jobs in North America. The company also increased inventory to enhance its just-in-time delivery system.
