Junair Spraybooths Install a Second Spray Booth for AK Bodyshop

AK Bodyshop was founded in 2006 by owners Andy and Lisa Kirk to undertake accident repairs, paintless dent removal, SMART repairs, plastic welding and part & full resprays for all vehicle makes and models. At the time of opening AK Bodyshop were repairing around 10 vehicles a week, in 2008 they decided to purchase their first spray booth which was a Junair Colourbox spray booth fitted with Junair’s QADs which is an advanced auxiliary air movement system proven to speed up paint drying times.

Junair Spraybooths have been working with AK Bodyshop Since 2008

Andy Kirk, Owner at AK Bodyshop comments “Our business has grown significantly since we installed our first spray booth in 2008, this growth has been down to a substantial increase in the volume of fleet repairs. Last year it quickly became apparent that we had outgrown our previous bodyshop, therefore after much deliberation we decided to invest to relocate to a much bigger premises which was also in a more central location. When we decided to move premises we made the decision to relocate the Junair Colourbox spray booth as the spray booth had never let us down and still looked as new as the day it was installed. In order to handle the increased number of repairs it was apparent we required a second spray booth for the bodyshop, we again turned to Junair Spraybooths for the design, manufacture and installation.”

Installing the Latest Spray booth Equipment for AK Bodyshop

The installation saw AK Bodyshop opt again to install Junair’s QADs to their new spray booth. Andy adds “Our first Junair spray booth was fitted with QADs which dramatically speeds up our drying process allowing us to get more cars repaired, not only that this technology also reduces our energy consumption which saves us thousands of pounds a year. Therefore when we purchased the latest spray booth the first additional feature we opted for was QADs. In fact I don’t think I would buy a spray booth again without them.”

Jason Douglas Sales Director, Junair Spraybooths comments “From our initial meeting in 2008, it was clear Andy’s business was built on offering a fast, reliable and high quality vehicle repair service and was willing to invest in high specification equipment which would help AK Bodyshop achieve this. No expense has been spared and their new bodyshop now enables AK Bodyshop to expand as a business and continue to offer their customers a high quality service which exceeds their expectation.”

Another Satisfied Junair Spraybooths Customer

On completion of our latest project with AK Bodyshop, Andy commented “I was able to lean on Junair Spraybooths expertise when it came to the design and layout of the facility. Junair also took care of all the mechanical and electrical services. Having purchased from Junair before I knew what to expect, they managed the whole project professionally and with regular communication. I am so proud and pleased with the facility we have created. We now have a bodyshop which is capable of undertaking all types of vehicle repairs.”
