Somora Motor Parts has been appointed as an Irish distributor for spray gun specialist DeVilbiss.
Somora will now be stocking a complete range of DeVilbiss equipment and spares at its distribution centre in Dublin 22 for immediate supply to motor factors across Ireland.
The company says this will allow bodyshops faster access to new spray guns, personal protection equipment, air control filtration equipment, regulators, hoses and gauges, as well gun cleaning equipment and spares and accessories.
It adds that this will include spares for older guns which some painters may still have in use.
Stephen Lawless, sales manager at Somora Motor Parts said: “DeVilbiss is a company with an excellent reputation in the bodyshop sector and an extensive customer base all over Ireland.
“We wanted to make it easier for existing and new customers to access DeVilbiss products, with improved local availability and faster delivery, something we can do through motor factors.”
Mr Lawless added that having access to DeVilbiss spare parts means it can offer an economical incentive to bodyshops and painters around the country.
“Spray guns often require replacement parts and DeVilbiss can offer some major advantages in this area,” he said.
“Firstly, the range of parts means that it is far more economical to repair DeVilbiss guns as all types of individual parts are available and not just complete modules.
“Secondly, these spare are available quickly through a well established distribution network meaning guns can be up and running again more quickly.”
