Axalta Opens New U.K. Headquarters
Dec. 17, 2013—Axalta Coating Systems announced the opening of its new headquarters in the United Kingdom on Monday.
The new facility is located in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, and will include a training academy for body shop customers and consolidate all of Axalta’s liquid coating business offices in the U.K.
The facility will also include a refinish training center segment that will open in February. Each of Axalta’s three global refinish brands—Cromax, Spies Hecker, and Standox—will have its own dedicated training room, mixing area and spray booth.
“The Academy will enable refinish craftsmen to learn and to apply best practices to build their businesses and keep pace with an ever-changing market,” said Mike Davis, managing director of Axalta Coating Systems U.K. “The new facility provides a fresh and modern working environment and was developed in close cooperation with the local council to make sure plans aligned with local environmental goals.”
