Mike Carr said, ‘It is a milestone to have Axalta’s 40,000th spectrophotometer in the marketplace. It truly is a compliment that so many bodyshops realise the benefits of this device. Customers appreciate tools that help them get the job done efficiently, quickly and accurately. We are proud to offer this solution to the market and look forward to its continued growth.’

Dr Martin Wulf, colour marketing manager for Axalta Refinish Systems in EMEA, said, ‘The devices are designed to help refinishers get the right colour match the first time by eliminating costly mistakes and by speeding up the repair process. The patented technology quickly identifies the paint colour, and users of the second-generation devices will also get the details of any paint effects. Then, the colour software selects the closest colour formula to match based on pre-set search criteria making the entire process quick, easy and effortless.’
