Naperville, Chicago — Spanesi Interactive Week kicked off on Monday, reigning in the inaugural week-long virtual event hosted by Spanesi Americas.
Monday’s events included a kickoff keynote by Spanesi Americas Chief Operating Officer Tim Morgan, as well as a demonstration of the company’s 106/Universal Jig System and a discussion on panel straightening with the Spanesi PULL UP! System.
Morgan also delivered some key insights on Spanesi’s operations amid the current supply chain challenges.
Thus far, Morgan said Spanesi has not faced any supply chain interruptions, and its parent company in Italy has reportedly ordered enough product to keep its stock in check for the next two years.
“When it comes to supply chain, our links are strong; from Italy to the U.S., to Mexico, South America and beyond. We have no problem supplying what we need to get to our customers,” said Morgan.
Morgan also confirmed that all Spanesi’s tools are made in Italy, with certain components of paint booths in particular made in the U.S.A.
“All of our equipment comes from Padova, Italy,” said Morgan. “When you look at some of the components of our spray booths, though, some of the parts are made here in Chicago.”
On Tuesday, October 26, Spanesi’s Interactive Week events will be as follows:
- Ford Collision Repair Overview with Gerry Bonanni, senior engineer, paint and body repair for Ford Motor Company
- Interview with Louie Sharp, owner of Island Lake, Illinois’s Sharp Auto Body
- Repair Planning, Measuring and Repairing with Jeramy Holloway, Spanesi’s director of Technical Training; Bret Runyon, technical trainer and sales specialist for Spanesi Americas and Tim Morgan, COO of Spanesi Americas
