Axalta has opened its new Australia and New Zealand regional multi-functional facility. According to the company, the 5,300-square-meter facility will enable higher quality and faster service for customers throughout the region.
“This new facility is a significant milestone for Axalta and all of our customers in the region. Customers will benefit because of the greater access to new products, faster customer service, and the unique training opportunities offered at our new facility. In addition, the expanded presence in ANZ enhances the capacity we need to meet our long-term growth plans in the region, which is an integral part of our continued global growth,” said Robert Bryant, CEO of Axalta.
Located in Marsden Park, Western Sydney, Axalta’s new facility will reportedly house regional corporate offices, a customer training facility, and a warehouse and distribution center. Each of Axalta’s business segments—Refinish, Industrial, and Transportation—will be represented in the new facility to serve its customers, Axalta stated.
The customer training facility in Sydney will use Axalta’s latest coating technologies, industry-leading training techniques, and advanced digital tools to enable its customers to deliver the highest quality refinish solutions to the end-user, while increasing their productivity and profitability, the company stated. According to Axalta, Refinish customers will also gain in-depth knowledge of the latest spraying application systems that use less energy and reduce waste, have fast-drying finish, and use superior color matching technologies. The new training facility is expected to be fully operational within the next four months.
