Aston Martin dealership chooses Sikkens

Dick Lovett Group has selected Sikkens as paint partners after being named an approved Aston Martin dealership in September.

The group is already home to BMW, Ferrari, Maserati, MINI and Porsche, and has now added renowned British brand Aston Martin to the list.

To ensure quality of support, the group sought a paint partner and found what it was looking for in Sikkens.

Overseeing operations is Paul Blewett who’s been in charge of the £3m state-of-the-art workshop since it opened its doors in 2014. He said, ‘With the planned opening of our new Aston Martin dealership we were looking for a paint partner for our bodyshop. I just happened to be down at the new AkzoNobel Training Centre in Didcot and was impressed by the facilities which were first class; that was around four months ago and it’s been very advantageous working with the team and having the new Sikkens brand installed.

‘As Sikkens is approved by Aston Martin it all fitted together very well. The colour management training and interaction has been very good and the product delivers just the results we were hoping for.’

Noel Jennings, regional sales manager for AkzoNobel, added, ‘The bodyshop is absolutely pristine, it’s a fabulous facility and working environment. We’re delighted to be working with the team at Dick Lovett, it’s a very, very professional set-up and we’re looking forward to helping deliver even beyond the highest standards the team sets for itself.’
