When we say “standard automotive tool sets,” we’re not just talking about the ones in your garage. This tool set is HUGE. About the size of a truck.
Georgia Powder Coating has been privileged to provide powder coating services on more than 1,000 Standard Automotive Tool Sets (SATS) for the U.S. Army, with plans to eventually make as many as 4,800. Each “tool set” contains almost 2,000 tools, and is housed in an air conditioned rolling trailer workshop which can be packed on a plane and sent to any base in the world.
All the tools are made by a local company. We powder coat the tools for durability. Then they are shipped to the trailer manufacturer, where they are packed and sent around the world.
Georgia Powder Coating is pleased to play a part in assisting our troops. To commemorate the assembly of the 1,000th tool set, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held that included all companies assisting in its manufacture, as well as military, state and local government officials.
