Craftsman Collision Sees How It's Made at Pro Spot HQ.

The managers of Craftsman Collision stopped by on their annual manager's conference to visit the Pro Spot Headquarters in Carlsbad, CA. They visited the facility to tour the manufacturing plant, check out new products and grab lunch with the Pro Spot team.

"As part of our Craftsman Collision 2017 annual manager’s conference, we visited the Pro Spot plant in Carlsbad California. All of our Craftsman Collision locations are equipped with i4 and i5 resistance welders, SP-2 MIG Brazing, Aluminum MIG welding and high strength MAG welding. We also have the full aluminum Ford F-150 setup in multiple locations. Our team was extremely excited to see how our equipment is constructed and assembled and the new products being sold. The managers were able to see the innovation and quality built into the products to add confidence to our operations and quality of repair," said Rick Hatswell, Craftsman Collision Chief Operating Officer.

"On the tour they were able to see how we make our products from start to finish. They saw where engineering designs the latest Pro Spot products, the machine shop and sheet metal shops that create the parts from scratch, all the way to final testing, shipping & training", explained Ashley Olsson, Pro Spot Director of Communications.

They were also able to get their hands on the new Dust-Free Sanding System and got an exclusive look at a couple new PR-5 Rivet Gun accessories that are coming out soon.

After a renovation, Pro Spot added almost 10,000 sq feet to their plant and expanded their training classroom and workshop. "We were extra happy to host Craftsman Collision as they were the first to enjoy the new space we've designed for industry and product training" expressed Ashley. "A big thank you to Craftsman Collision and we welcome you back anytime!"
