We don't just sell equipment for others to use. We use the system daily ourselves. We are always looking to improve what we do and what we sell. In the early 90's the average alloy wheel was typically 15" to 16" inches. Today , 17 to 18" wheels are normal and seem to be getting larger every year. Our older systems are easily adapted to keep up with the changes in alloy wheels. Our new 2009 system incorporates those updates and more. Wheel fitment, smoother operation and clamping force have all been improved.
The industry has been getting stronger every year. Even though we have been doing it for a while now, many are still in the dark when it comes to refurbishing alloy wheels. Most of our new local customers did not even know it could be done and thought their wheels had to be replaced.
The businesses we sell the refinishing systems to, did not know how easy it was to repair and refinish wheels for themselves. Auto detail shops have quickly converted into Auto Wheel Refinishing centers. Automotive dealers and body shops have added wheel refinishing to their existing businesses. Most are set up by people wanting to get into something new and want to start their own business. Some open a retail shop, some work from home and others have set it all up as a mobile operation in a cube van or trailer.
A few people looking for added income even do it just as a hobby in their spare time or off hours. Working from home in their garage, they only have to refinish 2 sets of wheels a week to generate an extra $50,000 in sales a year. Working only Saturday mornings once a week could not be more productive.
