At the end of March, AutoCity Cape Town which is situated at 8 Kirsten Street, Parow East, showcased the full range of Octoral refinish products. Company owner Warren Melville, a well-known entrepreneur in the automotive paint business, along with sage advice from paint technician Mike Kent, AutoCity Paint & Panel offers unequalled refinishing service and product know-how.
This is Warren’s second business venture, having managed two others in the Cape Town and Western Cape areas and he has 36 years of experience in the automotive paint industry. “Our branches are all owner-managed which I think offers everything to make it a real success. All our staff are highly experienced and recognised people from the trade”. Communication to the client is of a high standard.
AutoCity Cape Town is one of five branches situated throughout South Africa These branches are all one stop shops. Dealing direct with a supplier always makes products more affordable in today’s tough times.
“New is always exciting, especially if it is a world class brand. It creates new interests and competition in the SA marketplace which is sorely needed, and Octoral who is owned by Valspar a subsidiary of The Sherwin-Williams Company, has the capability to compete with all major A brands, but at an affordable price.
Warren continued to say, “Octoral offers a Shake & Pour complete water base system with a unique dispenser with just 62 toners. It also has a solvent base system with basecoats and 2K enamel toners. It has three UNI Thinners which is used across the range of products to keep it simple and stockholding low.”
Colouristics is Octoral’s strong point and they have achieved this by having colour labs all around the world. It enjoys some of the main International OEM approvals too. A user-friendly software programme and basic mixing ratio of primers and paints is part of the package.” he concluded.
Octoral has a Cloud-based information system that is active 24/7/365. You have direct access to information, technical data and colouristic updates on all the lines within the Octoral range at the touch of your fingers.
International technicians visit South Africa on a quarterly basis or whenever needed for additional training or new product releases. This keeps all clients up to date with the latest trends.
Remember: Octoral offers more than just products – they also guarantee a partnership with added value.
