Dec. 15, 2015—Global Finishing Solutions (GFS) announced that it has broken ground on its new Center for Excellence in Osseo, Wis.

The 80,000-square-foot facility will house state-of-the-art training and product research, and a development center. Construction will be completed by August 2016.

“Our new building will truly showcase our latest advanced paint booth technologies, including our REVO Accelerated Curing Systems, in order to demonstrate for our distributors and customers how our newest products dramatically improve body shop repair efficiency and quality. The new R&D area accommodates our growing product line and faster pace for introducing revolutionary new products to the industry,” said Jim Faragher, Global Finishing Solutions president.

The Center for Excellence training area will allow GFS employees, distributors and customers to improve support, service and understanding of the latest GFS products. The facility was designed specifically to mirror a working body shop to ensure that the training experience would accurately reflect field training.

“Creating the Center for Excellence with cutting-edge body shop processes and equipment fully aligns with our strategy of continuously improving our service to the market,” adds Faragher.
