What they do: The world’s leading manufacturer of paint booths, spray booths, and finishing systems for industrial coating and finishing, automotive body shops, aerospace finishing, and truck and large equipment finishing.
How they’re growing: Global Finishing Solutions (GFS) is adding an 80,000-square-foot Center for Excellence to its facility in Osseo that will house a state-of-the-art training and product R&D center with additional space for expansion. The center also will include a state-of-the-art product demonstration center where GFS can showcase its products to prospective customers.
The Center for Excellence training area will allow GFS employees, distributors and customers to continuously improve support, service and understanding of the latest GFS products. To make certain that the hands-on training experience accurately reflects field experience, GFS designed the facility with full preparation and paint areas to closely mirror a working body shop.
What they’re saying: “Our new building will truly showcase our latest advanced paint booth technologies…in order to demonstrate for our distributors and customers how our newest products dramatically improve body shop repair efficiency and quality.” – Jim Faragher, president of Global Finishing Solutions
