Shop Assessments

Our Tech Team can conduct assessments of vital areas of shop production, from spray booth performance to compressors, air filtration, piping, airline contamination and restrictions. This comprehensive analysis can help management eliminate costly production downtime.

Troubleshooting

Even with industry leading PPG products, issues arise on occasion. One of our six certified tech team members is usually just a phone call away to help troubleshoot frustrating production issues, whether they be from improper production selection, equipment issues or application issues. On site troubleshooting is also available as needed.

New Products/Technologies

Our tech team loves testing new products! Let us help you select the latest and greatest technologies, from clearcoats to sandpaper; we test most new products in our two training facilities before promoting them to the customer!

SOP’s

Our tech team can help you develop SOP’s which encourage efficient material usage, helping you maintain consistent P&M profitability.
