The popular Blackhawk brand of body repair equipment has a new Irish distribution partner, with Autobody Ltd. now offering locally based sales, back-up and support from its base in Clonmel.

Theo will be responsible for the sales, service and calibration of Blackhawk equipment in Ireland as well as training and technical support. He is encouraging anyone with Blackhawk equipment to make contact so he can help them make the most of their investment. He comments, “Through servicing and software upgrades it is often possible to give equipment a completely new lease of life, or in some cases there may new techniques that can be used with the equipment to open up new repair potential.”

In being able to offer equipment from both Blackhawk and Car-O-Liner Theo says he will have access to the most comprehensive range of equipment of its kind on the market, with different options to suit bodyshops of differing sizes and budgets. With regards to Blackhawk this means access to popular ranges of lifting, measuring and alignment equipment including the renowned Shark and Korek names.
