Symach Announces New FixLine for Zenetec CSN in Barrie, ON

Symach has announced the integration of a FixLine conveyor system at Barrie, Ontario's newest Zenetec CSN facility, marking the European company's first large-scale body shop installation within the Canadian market.

Located in South Barrie, Zenetec CSN’s new shop is estimated to perform 90 repairs per week. It will be fully automated with Symach's FixLine conveyor system, which integrates the use of six robots "to guarantee a perfect performance for all the phases of the repair process, including body filler, primer, and paint."

The automation is expected to drastically reduce cycle time, offering customers an express service.

The 28,000-square-foot shop will include an automatic car wash with six independent stalls for detailing. Five bays for vehicle wraps, window tinting, and glass replacement will also be incorporated into the facility.

“It all comes down to who can repair the vehicle faster while keeping quality and safety paramount and costs contained by reducing overall cycle time,” said William Monteith, vice president of Zenetec.

The shop is slated to be fully operational by the beginning of 2017.
