Putting Our Guns in the Hands of Tomorrow's Painters, Today


The spray gun is one of the most essential and personal tools of a spray painter’s craft. Ask any spray painter if they remember the first gun they ever held or were taught on, and their reply would probably be limited to one or two brands.

Introducing Sagola to upcoming spray painters during their training helps them to decide which spray gun they want to invest in when they start their careers.

In June, we visited Coventry College in the UK and met with Ian Wilson, Curriculum Manager and Lecturer for Motor Vehicle Engineering. Supporting Coventry College with brand new Sagola products provides their students with the Sagola experience in which we hope they enjoy learning to spray paint vehicles with so much that they make it their spray gun of choice in the future. Investing in providing higher learning institutions is a core ethos of Elcometer and the company is driving this same philosophy forward with our Sagola automotive refinish product range.

Coventry College provides great opportunities for individuals looking to begin a career in the motor industry. Students are able to qualify from a one-year course with leading vocational qualifications such as the City & Guilds Level 2 in Light Vehicle Body Repairs or an NVQ Level 2 & 3 in Vehicle Body and Paint Operations - graduating with skills and qualifications which are highly desirable to employees throughout the automotive industry.

If you would like to nominate a higher learning institution near you, please get in touch with the spray division at Elcometer.
