President of FLEX North America | AFO Project | DETALKS

Dane Hennen published on

The Air Force One Detailing Project had a handful of world renowned sponsors that arrived for the event. With FLEX polishers being the primary tool, Levi got to sit down with Bob Eichelberg (President of Flex North America) for an onsite DETALKS! Flex Polishers are one of the primary tools in the detailing industry. The Flex 3401 is the most popular as well as the polisher that was used on Air Force One. Flex polishers boast plenty of power, but also have the capability to "finish" the paintwork. Force rotation polishers are much different than a Dual Action or a typical Rotary. The Flex has a continuous rotation regardless of the amount of pressure used. Hence why it is a great tool when working upside down on the wing of a plane. Bob gives us a brief history lesson on Flex and how they got to where they are today. Even though the company originated overseas, the North American operation is bigger than ever!
