Global liquid and powder coatings supplier Axalta recently announced that it has signed an agreement to develop a new facility in Thiel, the Netherlands, for its refinish business.

“This is a very exciting time for our refinish business in the Netherlands,” said Adrien Schrobiltgen, Axalta’s Vice President for Refinish Systems in Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“There has been a period of growth and change following our acquisition of Metalak in 2015. We have outgrown our current location’s ability to support us in the way in which we need it to. But change brings opportunity, and this new green-field site on Business Park Medel, Tiel, is the perfect location for us to build for the future in the Netherlands.”

The 7,250-square-meter facility will house office space over three floors, a warehouse, a training center and a separate mixing room.

“We are always looking to improve our level of support to our customers, so today, with a view to the future, we commit to build a state-of-the-art facility,” said Bas van de Ven, Axalta’s Managing Director for Refinish in the Netherlands.

“The new training center will be able to meet the future needs of the market, while the new offices and sophisticated automated warehouse will allow us to take our daily operations to the next level and to attract and to retain outstanding talent. Today we are making Axalta a future-proof partner in the refinish market in the Netherlands."

Groundbreaking is set for October with a completion date estimated for summer 2020.
