Axalta has received seven certifications from the Center for Experimentation and Road Safety (CESVI), becoming the coatings company with the highest number of approvals granted by the organisation in Mexico.
The certifications recognise products that meet or exceed rigorous quality standards, specifications and performance metrics.
“We are honoured to receive these certifications from such a prestigious institution,” said Manuel Maestro, Regional Sales and Strategic Accounts Director, Axalta Mexico. “With more than 150 years of experience, we understand the automotive market and the needs of customers in Mexico and will continue to deliver the highest quality products, services and technologies that grow our customer businesses.
“Sustainability and high performance are central to our business. We are committed to introducing innovative products that help to increase throughput in body shops around the world.”
Axalta says it provides regular free training to automotive refinish painters at its body shops through the “Axalta on Tour” programme, which has helped over 20,000 painters in Latin America become better, more productive and more energy efficient.
In addition, Axalta’s loyalty programme in Mexico, “The Painter’s Club,” has over 3000 refinishers enrolled and “recognises the dedication and hard work of refinishers in Mexico”.
