Bob Bennett founded B&B Auto Body in Sarasota, FL, in 2007 “in a little hole-in-the-wall building on a shoe-string budget.”

Though he had worked at a number of independent auto body shops, he decided to open his own shop to provide customers with high quality repairs and superior customer service.

 

“I just thought I could make improvements to the process and do a better job for the consumers,” Bennett said.

Switching to Pro Spot’s SP-5 was definitely a super upgrade,” Bennett said. “It was a night and day difference, plus it’s super easy to use. After a short training course for my guys, they picked it up immediately. There wasn’t much of a learning curve at all. It was pretty much plug and play.”

 

Bennett loves the Pro Spot i4 Inverter Resistance Spot Welder, designed to handle materials difficult to weld, like boron steels and Advanced High Strength Steels.

 

“Shops need the i4 Inverter Resistance Spot Welder now!" according to Bennett. "With a lot of modern cars, you can’t plug weld without ruining the inner panels. Compared to punching and drilling holes, the i4 speeds the process, and if you look behind the seams, the welds look like they came straight from the factory. There’s also...
