Axalta Partners with National Transportation Center

Axalta Coating Systems has partnered with the National Transportation Center (NTC) — a centralized training and employment center created to support the commercial transportation industry’s critical and long-term training, workforce recruitment, and retention efforts. Axalta is extending its training resources to NTC and positively impacting the future of the transportation industry, the company stated.

The NTC will reportedly provide individuals interested in working in the commercial transportation repair and maintenance field with the knowledge to help them succeed.

According to the company, Axalta will provide its interactive, commercial transportation curriculum for use in NTC’s Heavy Truck Collision course, which focuses on training military veterans how to properly prepare substrates and successfully complete the truck refinishing process. The monthly course will be administered by NTC field personnel. Axalta will supply its ColorNet® color retrieval software and the color tools needed for students to effectively take the course.

“It’s truly a pleasure to partner with the NTC and lead efforts to influence the best practices for the trucking industry,” said Marcy Fernandez, Axalta national fleet manager. “We are excited to see how this new relationship will prepare current and future workers, and improve the industry for the next generation.”
