DIAMOND BAR, Calif. (June 14, 2016) — SEMA Garage is hosting an industry Open House July 28 at its newly remodeled training/conference center in Diamond Bar, which features an upgraded emissions lab and state-of-the-art equipment in an installation center and photo studio.
The new facility also features an emissions compliance center, recognized, the association said, by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as a Certified Ready Automotive Emissions Testing Laboratory. The event will take place from 5 to 9 p.m
"Since opening the SEMA Garage just a few years ago, SEMA members have embraced the facility and all its capabilities," said Mike Spagnola, SEMA vice president of product development.
"The strong industry support has allowed us to expand and improve on how we can assist with the product development process. We've upgraded the equipment and have added some amazing members to the team. The SEMA Garage Open House is a chance for the industry to see all that we have to offer."
The 15,000-sq.-ft. training/conference center is located adjacent to SEMA's Diamond Bar headquarters and is designed as an industry resource, allowing manufacturers of automotive parts and accessories to more efficiently and cost effectively develop products.
It offers two vehicle lifts, a portable coordinate measuring machine (CMM) for 3-D scanning, a 3-D printer for fast prototyping, digital race scales for the most precise vehicle weight measurements, a dynamometer for power output measurements, a photo studio for promoting finished products and a training facility that can be used for meetings with media members or industry representatives.
All SEMA members and industry professionals are invited to attend to attend the July 28 open house. There is no cost to attend the event, which includes complimentary food, drinks, music and giveaways.
