Axalta secures major international accolade

Axalta has been named the 2021 Global Commercial Vehicle Coatings Company of the Year by Frost & Sullivan.

The annual Best Practices award recognised Axalta for developing innovative coatings that address OEMs’ evolving needs in designing lighter-weight vehicles and exterior components and for its leadership in innovation and the commercialisation of highly efficient coating solutions.

Joseph Wood, vice president, global commercial vehicle coatings at Axalta, said: “Every day, we strive to build deeper relationships with our customers by listening to their needs, understanding their business and delivering world-class products and services that help them meet cost, quality, sustainability and cycle time targets. We’re honoured to be recognised for our innovation, product excellence and customer focus.”

Frost & Sullivan highlighted Axalta’s Imron and Rival coating solutions, which save time and energy while improving productivity by reducing the number of steps in the application process. The new basecoat products can also be applied directly on plastic substrates without an adhesion promoter, reducing the coating application process from the conventional three steps to two steps.
