About Accudraft: Our history, our products & the company we keep
Accudraft (SAIMA of North America Inc.) was founded by owner Guy Pippa in 1977. He was committed to bringing the auto collision industry a high production machine that would not only let the average shop produce jobs faster but also allow them to produce factory finishes. It all started with one singular paint booth system that set the tone for our entire company and our commitment to high quality.
Over the course of 35 years, Accudraft has grown far beyond one product and today we serve several industries in markets across the entire western hemisphere. In addition to the automotive and truck industry, Accudraft designs and builds finishing systems and paint booths for the aircraft finishing industry, marine vessel finishing industry, train and rail car finishing industry, and many other industries that need spray finishing enclosures and solutions.
Today, our manufacturing is done in Italy and in the U.S. at our facility in New Jersey. Our unique ability to design and manufacture across borders allows us to bring you great products at better prices. We are committed to bringing you best-in-class products and in serving you better by increasing our partnerships and distribution network.

Accudraft’s signature structure has been a symbol of its unparalleled quality for over 35 years. Build-quality is the cornerstone around which all Accudraft products are engineered. It permeates the mentality of every person in our organization and keeps our engineers true to what people expect when they work with an Accudraft product. This commitment to building great machines is what drives us. It’s in our DNA and it stems from the company’s origin itself.
Accudraft products originated near the town of Arezzo, a region in Italy known for its artisan or “artigiano” roots in metalworking. During industrialization, local craftsmen brought their passion for superior quality to new foundries and industrial factories. Whether the finished product was an industrial machine or a piece of jewelry, the end result was the same; A high level of quality that people could see and feel. This has always been the cultural signature of the region and back in 1977, it shaped every step of production on the first ever Accudraft spray booth.
After more than 35 years, the integrity of both our products and our company has never been stronger.
Our team here at our headquarters in New Jersey and our distributors around the world offer unmatched support and expertise for our products. Our dealers and distributors serve as a critical link between our company and our customers everywhere. We rely on them to participate with us as partners in building and maintaining the long-standing customer relationships that have made Accudraft successful.
