Mooresville, North Carolina, is home to several NASCAR race teams, manufacturers and suppliers, including our team, Front Row Motorsports. On a typical day, our shop is buzzing with preparations for the upcoming race weekend: chassis are being painted, parts are being serviced and cars are being wrapped in sponsor graphics. And our new CP compressor is never idle.
Like most companies in this line of business, we rely heavily on high quality equipment from suppliers we can trust. When the old compressor in our paint shop was on its last legs, we went out looking for a new compressor – and found a new partner!
The CPBG 29 D with its 500-gallon holding tank became our newest paint shop addition. This 30HP model supplies the output needed for all-day use without fail. In the ten months, the compressor has now been operating, there have been zero issues with the system.
I cannot overstate how important this is to our business. Our car production is planned out months in advance, so if our paint shop were to lose access to compressed air, it could cause major logistical and scheduling issues. Now we don’t have to worry about a stoppage in our paint shop. We learned quickly that the dependability and quality of Chicago Pneumatic compressors is unmatched.
Our General Manager, Jerry Freeze, underlines this:
“In the Motorsports business, we rely on compressed air to power the tools and shop equipment used to build our NASCAR Cup Series race cars. Having a quality air compressor system to handle the volume and demands our employees need is vital to getting the job done. When we needed to upgrade our air system to handle our ever-growing demands, we found that Chicago Pneumatic had the best products to meet our price point and it was a no-brainer to change our system over to their high-quality line of compressors, dryers and tanks. The system has worked flawlessly since it was installed and will give us the compressed air capacity to expand our operations in the years to come.”
In fact, we had a good feeling as soon as we saw the Chicago Pneumatic tagline – People. Passion. Performance. It is exactly what our company stands for: we love what we do in every sense of the word we start every single day with a passion to build the fastest cars on the track every weekend. Chicago Pneumatic has been providing high-quality compressors and air treatment products for the past 120 years and we all hope they will continue to do so. We are very proud to call them partners.
It’s not just what we do. It’s who we are.
