Keenan Auto Body, Inc. Opens 12th Location, Armed with Advanced Tech
Feb. 6, 2015—Keenan Auto Body Inc., a family-owned multi-shop operation based in Pennsylvania, announced on Friday that it is making final preparations to open its newest location in Aston, Pa.
“Our contractors have been very busy and haven’t stopped since we took ownership of the 24,000-square-foot facility in the summer of 2014,” Mike LeVasseur, Keenan Auto Body’s president and CEO, said in a release. “To say we are excited opening our 12th location would be an understatement, and we are all set for a March 2 hard opening.”
“We are no strangers to opening new locations but this one will be unique with the addition of the [Body Shop Revolution North America] system”, Craig Camacho, Keenan Auto Body’s marketing director, said in a release. “We are implementing the system which has the ability to fully dry a freshly painted vehicle in 3 minutes, which will give us another competitive edge in our marketplace.”
The Body Shop Revolution North American program includes the use of the Robotica gas catalytic drying system, which utilizes an exothermic chemical reaction created by turning methane gas into infrared energy that can rapidly dry and cure paint, primer and filler. Body Shop Revolution also implements a full Theory of Constraints-based production system.
Keenan is planning to host several open house events to showcase the new system.
