H&S Autoshot began over 25 years ago in Georgetown, Ontario, Canada where its head office is still located today. Over the years, a need for an American location was recognized and a warehouse / manufacturing facility was established in Niagara Falls, New York, USA.
The Uni-Spotter stud welder was an original pioneer of stud welders in the auto body industry. Over the years, it has grown to be the standard of the industry and sets the criteria for all other stud welding technology.
In 1998, H&S Autoshot acquired a lamp manufacturing company in Iowa and formed the Cure-Tek division of H&S. That division is now located in Georgetown, Ontario with a warehouse and service operation in Niagara Falls, NY. Cure-Tek manufactures curing lamps for refinishing applications, both in short wave and UV technologies. Cure-Tek has become an integral part of the H&S product offering and will be instrumental in leading the company into the future.
Market share, brand awareness and product placement in distribution channels are the earmarks of H&S Autoshot’s ongoing success. With commitment through new product development and application of company resources, H&S Autoshot will continue to hold a unique position in the refinish market.
Nu-Tec Systems LLC, a leading
manufacturer of automotive repair arc welding and plasma
cutting systems, has acquired H & S Autoshot Manufacturing
Co. Ltd of Georgetown, Ontario effective January 8, 2016.
H&S Autoshot, founded in 1980, is the market leader in
hand-held stud welder dent pulling systems in North America
and recently introduced the UNI-9850 dual stud welding
system capable of welding both steel and aluminum panels.
Michael Cooper, President of
Nu-Tec Systems, said, “H&S Autoshot is the premier
manufacturer of professional stud welding dent pulling
systems in North America with an exceptionally high skilled
sales organization.” Further, he said, “It is a rare
opportunity that two companies have such great synergies of
welding systems designed specifically to address the needs
of the collision repair industry.”
H&S Autoshot Canadian customers
will continue to be serviced from the Georgetown, Ontario
facility and all other H&S Autoshot customers will be
serviced by a new expanded Nu-Tec Systems U.S. manufacturing
& distribution facility.
