For the first time, visitors were able to tour this new 60,000 sq. ft. facility that will be used as a manufacturing plant, warehouse and showroom and will employ 20 people.
Sales Manager Napoleon Garcia is proud of this new facility, which will complement his company's original location in Ontario, CA that was established in 2013. "We have big plans for the Bay Area because there are more shops there, which means more opportunities," he said. "We have seen so much growth in this area within the last four years that we decided to establish a location in Tracy."
Ideally situated to serve its sales territory, RGI Spray Booth Company's new facility is in a prime location to achieve its goals, Garcia said. "We are 90 minutes from Santa Cruz, Sacramento and San Francisco, so we are in a great position to cover northern California aggressively, as well as into Seattle and even parts of Canada."
With six sales reps working the region and selling into more than a dozen other industries in addition to collision repair, RGI Spray Booth Company is ready to hit the ground running. "We are all about customer service here at RGI and that is why we've succeeded in southern California, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico through our Ontario, CA location," Garcia said. "So this is a logical progression of what we've been doing now for the past four years."
In addition to making paint booths and painting accessories, RGI is a distributor of a wide range of collision repair equipment, including StarAliner, Titanium, Signature, Innovative, Infinity, DV Systems and Prima Welding.
By visiting body shops and collision centers from Gilroy south all the way to Canada to the north, RGI Spray Booth Company takes a personal, hands-on approach to selling paint booths, paint accessories and collision repair equipment, Garcia said.
"I tell shop owners all the time that they can buy any piece of equipment, including a spray booth online," he said. "But at the end of the day, it all comes down to support and service. When people buy a spray booth from us, they know we made it because our name is on it and that there is no middleman."
Special guest vendors at the Grand Opening included DV Compressors, Signature Frame Machines, Prima Welding, Infinity 3D Laser Measuring Systems, BendPak Lifts, Innovative Tools and Technologies and Titanium Hydraulic Products.
