Performance Tools Moves Into New FacilityJuly 30th, 2009 | Category: Industry News
Officials for Performance Tools Distributing report that the company moved into a new facility recently. Since 1994, the tools distributor shared a space with its parent company, Performance Films Distributing, in Dublin, Ohio, but the company has since separated from the films division and relocated to Plain City, Ohio.
Performance Tools new space features 16,000 total square feet, including office space, warehousing, training facilities and an automotive spa that the company launched recently. “We’re only utilizing roughly 4,000 square feet for tools,” explains Dick Austin, sales manager. “A third of the facility is dedicated to offices; another third is a showroom for Performance Auto Spa; then we have space set up as a classroom as well. Four thousand square feet are dedicated to tools, which leaves a lot of room for paint protection, window film and detailing products, which we just picked up.”
Austin says the company expanded into other areas in recent times, including automotive detailing supplies and custom-made shop cabinetry. Austin is a fairly recent addition himself, as he joined the company in August of 2008 as its new sales manager. He has 31 years of experience in film sales and installations, including owning several tint shops, working as a sales representative for film manufacturers and an independent film distributor, and serving as sales manager for Pentagon Protection USA.
Performance tools currently hosts nine employees at its new location with a combined total of 110 years of experience in the window film industry.
