Nippon Paint Collabs to Launch Coil Coatings Center
During the 40th anniversary celebration of steel building systems firm Shandong Wiskind Ltd., Nippon Paint Holdings Co. Ltd. announced the establishment of a new coil coatings joint innovation center, which will be created in collaboration with Wiksind.
In this new venture, both companies will work together to advance technological developments, enhance commercial promotion and find new business opportunities. The innovation center will also act as a space for collaboration between painting manufacturers, coil producers, distributors, design institutes and contractors.
According to Nippon Paint, the joint innovation center is also the start of a positive collaboration between both companies, which will allow for the creation of better products while creating an integrated and efficient enterprise.
Hong Jiang, both the chief technology officer of Nipsea Group (the parent company of Nippon Paint), and the president of coil coating of Nipsea Group, noted that as the division of labor in the industry chain becomes more complex, the innovation capacities of the traditional single organization are coming up against significant challenges.
“It must be oriented by market customers, and achieve many victories through the open and innovative mode, cooperating with upstream and downstream partners and even cross-industry and cross-field cooperation,” Jiang said.
"The cooperation between Wiskind and Nippon Paint's coatings industry chain will open a new chapter of cooperation in the color coating industry," said chairman of Wiskind Wei Longzhu.
