Axalta and GM renew contract
General Motors UK has renewed its three-year agreement with Axalta. As part of the agreement Axalta’s three premium global refinish brands, Cromax, Spies Hecker and Standox, are officially approved suppliers for paint repairs on Vauxhall in the UK.
Mike Davis, managing director of Axalta, said, ‘General Motors and Axalta have a long-standing relationship both in the UK and globally. This has been built on Axalta’s ability to deliver high-quality product ranges, technical support and advanced colour management tools consistently to GM bodyshops.’
The agreement enables Cromax, Spies Hecker and Standox to support GM UK’s Vauxhall dealers and its network of approved bodyshops in the UK with paint warranties, technical support and bodyshop management advice. The three refinish brands also play an active role in the training programmes organised by GM UK, by providing on-going product training as well as training events and seminars on refinishing techniques and colour matching.
Mike added, ‘By renewing this agreement, GM continues to demonstrate its trust in Axalta’s ability to help drive its Vauxhall UK body shops to perform even better.’
