Vaughan, Ontario — January 30, 2018 — Just in time for its first year anniversary, SATA Canada will be opening a professional training centre at its Vaughan, Ontario headquarters – and Collision Repair magazine was given an inside peek of the facility.
General Manager of SATA Canada John Turner, commented, “The training centre is something the industry has been telling us they have wanted for some time. MSOs, paint manufacturers, the major warehouse distributors and jobbers had all expressed an interest in an SCI training centre. The benefits of training for their customers and their inside and outside sale people are immeasurable.”
He added, “For us the training centre is an opportunity to help our customers and end users with best practices, conduct R&D and to build the SATA brand.”
The facility, described by SATA as state-of-the-art, is designed to be a showcase for the re-finish industry.
The 2,500 sq. ft. centre contains a commercial dual bay spray booth, prep areas and classroom that can accommodate up to thirty people. As well, it will offer access the Ultra XD CTOF paint booth by Global Finishing Solutions (GFS), prep station tools and abrasives by MIRKA, IRT curing equipment and all paint brands.
A full range of industry leading SATA spray guns, filters, paint suits and CSA-NIOSH approved respiration will be also available to trainees.
Additionally, a professional instructor will be hired from the re-finish industry with a professional painting background. The centre will provide comprehensive product training for industry sales people and technicians, with a focus on the latest technology and best practices. The trainer will be available in the field to support sales teams with onsite training and technical assistance.
Training can be tailored to company demands and arranged in conjunction with internal training and company meetings.
