If you’ve walked into a new dealership service shop lately, you’ll notice they don’t look like they did in the old days anymore.  What you see now, in most cases, is a well-organized shop filled with new technology, improved automotive equipment, upgraded vehicle lifts, clean floors and things in their rightful place.

Now this doesn’t mean that the technicians and mechanics still don’t have grease, oil, and stains on their shirts.  No, these irreplaceable men and women are still the lifeblood of the dealership, working hard and getting their hands dirty every day to service vehicle after vehicle. 

What has changed though are the service and repair bays themselves and how efficient and organized they are now, helping dealership, as a whole, run more effectively and profitable. As a helpful guide, here’s a great article on how our company, Quality Automotive Equipment and Service, provides consultation on designing a mechanic shop layout in the 21st century.   

Fluid management, in a service facility, is a great example of what has greatly improved over time.  Not just in the way fluids are evacuated and dispensed but how they are monitored, positioned in the shop, and used collectively amongst a team. 

When it comes to managing fluids like oil, grease, hydraulic, transmission, diesel exhaust, water, and windshield washer fluids, it helps to have a system in place that allows fixed operation managers the ability to track how much is being used, who is using them, and what levels resources are at.  


Since the 1920’s, Graco has been a dominant player in lubrication and fluid management equipment for a variety of industries, automotive being one of them.  Over the years, especially by today’s standards, there isn’t a better manufacturer with more clout than Graco when it comes to dialing in with state of the art solutions.
