Over 200 tech students visited the Garmat USA manufacturing facility April 14th for the Denver-based Cars, Careers and Celebrities event. The attending students were also the first to witness the unveiling of Garmat USA’s new R&D and training facility. The facility has been in place since Garmat’s inception in 1988, but was recently renovated to include new equipment.

The center features both a modified and full downdraft paint booth with touchscreen controls, an Intelle-aire mobile station and new product introductions. Among the new products were Garmat’s Arch Accelerated Drying System, Spin Board Rotating Tool Racks, and Overhead Vacuum and Electrical Compressed Air System for Sanding Stations. The paint booths are outfitted with Garmat’s current line of waterborne solutions, lighting upgrades and paint booth accessories. The training center also includes a conference room that seats 60 people, with access to a private kitchen for catering needs.
