Liquid and powder coatings supplier Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) recently announced the opening of a new regional office and Refinish Training Center in Chengdu, China. The company calls the move a “strategic investment” in growth.

“The new West China facility will enable Axalta to more effectively serve light vehicle and commercial vehicle OEMs, refinish customers, as well as industrial customers with high-quality paints, sustainable applications and customized value services. With our advanced eco-responsible coatings technology and value-added training programs, Axalta continues to be a leader in the Refinish marketplace in China and around the world.”

With the move, the company doubled the size of the training center to 1,300 square meters to better support customers with consultancy and training programs and technology that helps them deploy the coatings systems.

The company says it expects to offer about 100 training sessions for more than 1,000 technicians in 2019.

“Building a new regional office and expanding our Refinish Training Center is part of Axalta’s commitment to the West China market and an important component of our growth strategy in China,” said Willie Wu, President of Greater China.

“More customers in West China can now enjoy the benefits of advanced coating technologies with upgraded services. With China’s government accelerating environmental requirements, Axalta is well positioned to lead while continuing to deliver for our customers.”
