Axalta Opens Color Center in Germany
Global coatings manufacturer Axalta Coating Systems (Philadelphia) recently announced that it has officially opened a new Color Solutions Center in Frankfurt, Germany.
Built to serve customers in Europe, the Middle East and Africa who require small-batch liquid coatings, the center allows for fast and agile production, the company says.
“We wanted to create the right conditions that would enable our highly skilled team of experts to color match and produce small batches, typically under 100 kg,” said Thomas Mangold, Axalta’s Business Director for the Industrial Liquid business in the EMEA region. “The Center also allows Axalta’s customers to test small quantities of new liquid products with very short lead times.”
Paint brands that will be supplied at the center include PercoTop, which is used on trailers, machinery, doors and window frames; Viter products, for general construction and earthmoving equipment; Acothane polyurethanes for pipeline coatings; and Corroless, a corrosion-control coating for steel structures.
“We’re always looking to better our customer’s experience in terms of convenience and flexibility, to allow them more time to focus on their business and customers,” added Mangold. “This Center will help achieve that.”
