Junair helps H Samson (Bolton) Ltd drive output and lower running costs
January 21, 2021
The accident repair, servicing and MOT experts H Samson (Bolton) Ltd got in touch with the team at Junair Spraybooths to discuss potential work on upgrading their existing setup.
Suffice to say that we were excited to get started. Here’s how the project happened…
Who are H Samson (Bolton) Ltd?
Established for over 70 years, H Samson (Bolton) Ltd are a well-established and longstanding business providing accident repair, servicing and MOT services to customers across the North West.
Why did they contact Junair?
H Samson were looking to upgrade their existing equipment, it had worked well but was getting old, expensiveto run and maintain and no longer met the demands and changing requirements of the bodyshop. By replacing their existing standard size spray booths (2 of) and separate baking oven with an extended length, drive-through Junair spray booth oven H Samson aimed to maximize floor space and in turn increase the number of jobs completed as well as the benefit of improved quality of finish.
What did Junair do?
Junair installed an extended length 3 Series Spray Booth; 12m in length which enabled vehicles and/or parts to be sprayed and then baked in the cabin at the same time. At 3.1m high, it accommodates the majority of light commercial vehicles on the road today and by making it ‘drive-through’ improved the workflow of the bodyshop.
The 3 Series is a full downdraught booth and in this project we opted for the LEVAC floor raised 140mm off the building floor, vehicles enter and exit via small ramps, avoiding the need for excavation and costly building works. LED lighting is standard in all of Junair equipment and provides the best form of illumination with low maintenance, and we included QADs auxiliary air movement system to speed up drying times.
The adjacent paint mixing room was also replaced for new with doors positioned at either end which made it easier for operators to enter in the spray booth.
What was the result?
The new spray booth has been running for a few months and is already making a difference.
“The booth is sensational; it’s been unbelievable for output, running costs and quality; a proper piece of kit. We knew of Junair’s reputation within the industry, they were the only choice for us” – Howard Wolstencroft, Managing Director
We were just as pleased with the outcome! Another excellent project, another happy customer. If you, like H Samson (Bolton) Ltd would like to overhaul your existing setup then all you need to do is get in touch. We can accommodate all kinds of specifications and requests.
