Accudraft manufacturer, Saima of North America, recently announced that Joe Emanuele has been recognized as the country’s top distributor for the third year in a row. 

Joe Emanuele is the founder and president of Gem Tool, a company that specializes in supplying paint booth equipment to body shops in New York City. Joe has managed to build a 20-year relationship with Accudraft, where he helped local collision centers and body shops upgrade their equipment.


“I really found something special in Accudraft’s products,” said Joe. “I’ve been in the business for a long time, but I haven’t come across any paint booths that rival Accudraft’s equipment. They have a type of paint booth that meets any of your needs, no matter how big or small!”


When it comes to being knowledgeable about the industry, Joe is a name that locals trust. Gem Tool  has been a pillar of the community for decades, and during that time they’ve been able to help a lot of different workshops find the right equipment for their operations.


Joe and his team have established themselves as the authority of paint booth equipment in the New York City area. After talking with shop owners and learning about their production rate, goals, and objectives, Joe and his team are able to select a range of equipment that helps businesses get the most out of their equipment.


Joe’s extensive knowledge of paint booth equipment has made him the go-to person when businesses are looking to find ways to expand their operation and increase productivity. One of the more popular models that Joe has sold is the Italia, a high-powered downdraft paint booth that’s functional enough to speed up production, but equipped with enough precision to handle detailed work on hot-rods and collector’s cars.

When asked what booth he likes the most, Joe remarked that the Italia is one of his favorite Accudraft paint booths. People who’re looking for a jack-of-all-trades can get everything they need in this booth. One of its most impressive features is the pit-less design that provides the benefits of downdraft airflow without having to do extensive concrete work. This is probably its number one selling point with most of my customers.

Along with supplying equipment, Joe and his team also service paint booths, perform repairs, and retrofit booths with various equipment. Gem Tool's expertise and top customer service have not only made Joe a valuable asset in the New York automotive industry, it has also helped him become an important part of the Accudraft family.


“We’ve always taken a keen interest in businesses who truly care about supplying their customer base with the best equipment available,” said Guido Pippa, Accudraft’s Vice President, “what set Joe apart from the rest of the distributors was his extensive knowledge and excellent work ethic. We're truly honored to have him on our team."
