AkzoNobel and Admiral renew partnership

AkzoNobel’s Vehicle Refinishes business has retained its longstanding partnership with Admiral. This follows a formal tender process and extends the relationship that started in early 2007 by another five years.

‘The competition for contracts with big work providers like Admiral is intense’, says Jon Amor, AkzoNobel’s Vehicle Refinishes manager for UK and Ireland. ‘It’s particularly satisfying to be able to confirm that our partnership with Admiral is as strong as it ever has been.

‘Our longstanding and successful co-operation with Admiral is based on the consistently high levels of commercial and technical support we provide to its network of approved repairers, as well as the continuous innovation and development of the Sikkens product range.’

Mike King, head of claims service for Admiral, comments ‘We are delighted to confirm the contract renewal with AkzoNobel and Sikkens. We continue to be impressed by AkzoNobel’s commitment to innovative product development and support for our engineering department and approved repairer network. Helping support effective repair processes, efficient and sustainable repairers and most importantly satisfied customers.’

Jon concludes, ‘We are looking forward to working with Admiral, its repairers and our selected distribution partners (ACIS Ltd and LKQ Coatings) to meet our shared goals over the coming five years. A number of exciting new ideas and initiatives will be introduced, and we will use our innovation to stay ahead of a constantly evolving market to deliver maximum benefit to the Admiral network and policy holders.’
