Spartan RV & Marine Expands Due to Partnership with Accudraft

Fri May 26, 2017

Aaron Price and the management team at Spartan RV & Marine specialize RV and marine repair, customization and maintenance. They have proudly served Gainesville and Northeast Georgia through top-quality service and craftsmanship. Over time, Spartan RV & Marine’s reputation began to spread outside of the Northeast Georgia area, and the company’s productivity grew as a result.

“One of our biggest challenges was keeping up with the heavy workload," Price says. "People heard about us through word-of-mouth and, before you knew it, we became one of the busiest shops in the region. We really didn’t want to turn down work, but we also had to figure out a way to provide the excellent service we’ve been known for. That’s where Accudraft came in.”

Price and his team turned to Accudraft Paint Booths for assistance. As one of the industry’s top paint booth manufacturers, Accudraft was able to help Spartan RV & Marine come up with a system that increased productivity, cut down on work time, while also providing the same quality that made people flock to the business.

Since Spartan RV & Marine worked with larger automobiles and boats, they needed a paint booth that was able to accommodate everything from extra-large objects to car-sized boats. Accudraft decided to go with the TX Pro Truck Paint Booth because its customizability and versatility makes it the perfect fit for Spartan RV & Marine’s unique demands, according to a press release.

After a quick installation, the 57-foot by 20-foot by 16-foot custom-built paint booth was ready for operation. The booth was given a drive-through mechanism to speed up productivity and prevent outside contamination as RVs and boats are moved throughout the workshop.

Price was clear that Spartan RV & Marine’s top goals were productivity and quality, which Accudraft delivered by equipping the booth with downdraft technology. Now the Spartan team doesn’t have to worry about contaminating the boats and RVs painted in their brand-new TX Pro Truck Paint Booth with dust, debris and overspray, thanks to the revolutionary downdraft technology that pulls all pollutants down and away from the painted object. This also means that Price and his team will spend significantly less time touching up and redoing paint jobs that were affected by contaminants.

“It’s been a great couple of weeks since we put in the new paint booth," Price says. "Things are going smoothly, the customers are happy and we don’t have to turn away any clients.”

Thanks to Accudraft’s customer service and diverse range of paint booth equipment, Price and his team were able to expand their business without increasing their stress.
