Dimmitt Automotive Group is a premier dealership with a spotless reputation, incredible customer service and an impressive selection of high-end and luxury performance vehicles. Dimmitt has been a part of the Tampa Bay community for more than 90 years, and they recently completed work on a brand new, state-of-the-art collision center to service the entire Dimmitt Automotive Group, as well as additional vehicles. The new development spans over 40,000 square feet and is equipped with the latest technologies to guarantee superior results and a five-star experience for all clients. The staff at Dimmitt Automotive Group is highly knowledgeable and experienced in providing world-class repair to premiere automotive brands. Dimmitt is certified to meet the highest standards for a range of luxury and performance vehicles, including Aston Martin, Audi, Bentley, Cadillac, GM, Jaguar, Land Rover, Maserati, McLaren, Rolls-Royce and Tesla. Dimmitt is also a part of the Assurance Alliance Manufacturer Certification program, which allows them to work on additional car brands like Ford Aluminum, Hyundai, Fiat, Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep. The technicians and staff are trained to meet strict requirements for these specialized vehicles, and the facility is also certified to meet all the equipment standards. In addition to offering full-service paint, body and collision repair, Dimmitt Automotive Group also has a service department that can service vehicles of various make and model at competitive rates. 

The Dimmitt Collision Center is also a certified Direct Repair Facility for numerous insurance providers, including Chubb Group, Pure Insurance, Allstate, Farmers, MetLife,  and others.

The Dimmitt team is always available to assist customers with any questions and offer high quality work in a timely manner, to ensure a five-star experience. 

The Challenge

Dimmitt Automotive Group prides themselves on completing all services and repairs in house and in a timely manner. The consistent heavy traffic means the facility needs to be well equipped with the tools and technology necessary to get the work done, and staff needs to work quickly and efficiently so the work meets brand standards, and also exceeds customer expectations. In order to maintain quality work and quick turnover time, the Dimmitt Automotive Group needed multiple paint booths so several jobs could be in progress and completed at a time. Additionally, they needed the paint booths to provide a bigger capacity so they could service larger vehicles, like SUVs and vans.

How Accudraft Helped

After analyzing their needs, the Dimmitt team selected three Accudraft Titan Downdraft Paint Booths and a Accumix Paint Mixing Room. The configuration of these units perfectly fit the new facility for the Dimmitt Automotive Group, and made a huge difference in service quality and completion time. With the new technology, staff was capable of working quickly and efficiently while producing flawless results on a range of luxury and performance vehicles of various sizes. 

The Accudraft Titan downdraft paint booth offers unparalleled downdraft airflow and contamination control, which means the Dimmitt Collision Center can take on more jobs and finish them quickly, while the incredible EnergySmart technology saves them up to 50% on their energy bills. The paint booth is also engineered to meet the airflow and heat specifications that are recommended by waterborne paint manufacturers so it can be used with the finest paints in the industry. The Titan also uses dual mode technology so the Dimmitt staff can easily switch between water-based or solvent-based modes quickly, which means they can complete one project while preparing for another. 

The Dimmitt Collision Center is a busy facility, so it was very important to them that they have equipment that maintains their high standard of service and results, while allowing them to keep up with customers and demand. The Titan paint booth is outfitted with an integrated air makeup system, which is specifically designed for high production. The turbines provide powerful airflow through the booth and direct heating with maximum energy efficiency, which means the Dimmitt staff can put more jobs through the booth per hour, making their business quick and effective. 

To complete the set up for the new facility, the Dimmitt group also chose to install a three-sided Accumix paint mixing room installed next to the paint booth for maximum productivity. The mixing room is a code compliant area for paint mixing and storage and it allows staff to mix paint, wash guns and keep all their tools and hazardous liquids in one well ventilated area. The configuration of the Titan paint booth and the Accumix mixing station selected by the Dimmitt group is an appealing set up, but also permits the team to work in a controlled environment without having to walk through the shop for the tools and equipment necessary for job completion. 

The Results 

World class vehicles deserve world class service, which includes paint and collision repair. With the new state-of-the-art facility, the Dimmitt Automotive Group is fully equipped to provide customers with five-star service in a timely manner. The addition of the Accudraft paint booths and mixing room elevated the quality of work that they can offer, and also allows the team to take on more customers and expand their business.
