Customer testimonials

Al and Ken of Mackey’s Body Shop – Jackson, MI.

“Our Garmat booth has allowed us to paint without buffing. I no longer need to buff for 3 to 4 hours a day. It’s like going from painting in a garage to a hospital surgical suite. We love what it has done for us. This booth has saved us $700 to $800 per week in not buffing cars. We wished we had bought it sooner. I still have the first gallon of rubbing compound that I had when we purchased our booth in December of 2003.”

 Bret Hummell of Hummell Body Shop – Nashville, MI.

“Cleanest paint job I ever turned out. No dirt in the paint job whatsoever. I am extremely pleased with Garmat USA Tier 1 performance” The Altra crew did a great job putting my booth together.

 Gary Janz of Southpoint Collision Charlevoix, MI.

“We did a lot of research on booths and felt Garmat was giving us a better high quality product. The Altra Products installation crew was great to work with. We were very pleased!”

 Todd Koperski of Michigan Kenworth – Byron Center, MI.

The Altra Products team installed our new Garmat USA booth in our shop. The booth is the best I have ever painted in. The most impressive part is the help we have received after the booths completion. The team helped us find the right tools and equipment and have been there every time we needed them.

 Mark of R&M Auto Body – Kalamazoo, MI.

“We love the versatility of painting two jobs at the same time in our two bay booth. The time savings is awesome. On another note the Altra Installation Crew had a can do attitude about our complex installation. They really came through for us with service that’s second to no one.”

 Ken, Bill & Les of Leroy’s Body Shop – Benton harbor, MI.

“Thanks for the excellent job putting up our paint booth. Your crew sure knows how to put up a booth. Why do you think we bought our fourth Garmat booth? Altra service! That’s why!”

 Dave Solmes of Dewey’s Auto Body

“We picked Altra Products because of their expertise, eye for detail and premium customer service after the sale.”

 Ed Pawloski of Ed’s body Shop – Caledonia, Michigan.

“I’m extremely happy with the way the staff at Altra Products CAD designed our shop for a rocket ship performance.”

 Alan Roy and Karl Nitschke of Heritage Collision – Mt Pleasant MI.

“I bought a new Snap on buffer before we bought our Garmat booth two years ago in December 2002 and we just don’t use it.” “Bye bye buffer, bye bye!”

 Randy Kleinheksel of Country Body – Holland MI.

“I wish we had bought our Garmat USA paint booth 10 years ago when we talked about it. It did prove to eliminate our cut and buff times so much that we no longer need to buff for hours. The Altra guys are great”

Clyde Shilander of Benedict Shilander Collision Ludington MI (Spray Bake Booth / DuPont Water):

We converted our older Spray Bake booth for waterborne paint. We added the Garmat USA Accelecure system and have been absolutely satisfied with its performance. I can tell we have too many hand held blowers already. We just are not using them much at all. It has allowed us much faster flash times and really speeded up the process. We also had the filtration system in the ceiling changed out when they did the Accele-Cure and now we get much cleaner paint jobs. We also did a Garmat USA lighting upgrade, the difference was remarkable. Now our painters can see! The Altra Products crew did a wonderful meticulous job on the conversion of our booth; they are a good group of guys.

Dave Solmes of Dewey’s Auto Body Hastings MI (Garmat Booths / PPG Water Materials)

I made the decision to put off upgrading our two paint booths for two years and we made the handheld blowers work, but ever since we put in the Accele-Cure fans it is like we died and went to heaven. These silly looking little fans have made a huge impact on the speed of the waterborne and solvent based application and curing. I wouldn’t consider any other approach to speed up the waterborne paint process.  As usual, Dick and his crew are always a pleasure to buy equipment from.

Paul Eno of Cherry Capital Cadillac Traverse City MI. (Garmat Booths / PPG Water Materials)

I love the Garmat Accele-Cure system; it cuts my dry times by at least half. The Accele-Cure system with the fans works much better than the corner blowers. These Garmat USA 3000 booths have tons of air flow. I really like the wide three row pits.

Sam Mc Clead of German Concepts Mishawaka IN. (Garmat 3000 / PPG Water Materials)

“The Altra booth crew was very professional and timely with the installation of our new booth. They did a wonderful job for us on the installation of our new Garmat USA 3000 spray booth. I would highly recommend Garmat USA products to others. I love the lighting especially the rear wall lights. The booth has no shadows with its horizontal mounted lights. Our booth also has the Garmat USA Accele-Cure air accelerator system installed. It really works great on our PPG paint products. I recently used it for drying some waterborne primer down by the rocker area. Guess what? The Garmat Accele-Cure system works great there too. I was pleasantly surprised. The Altra Crew did a great job!”
