Axalta in South Africa was formally introduced to the South African distributor network at a round-table event in Johannesburg earlier this year. During the two days Axalta’s global business was presented and the local strategy was shared.

Modderfontein, South Africa – 16 August 2018 – Refinish coating distributors travelled from across South Africa to join the Axalta team in conversation and understand the Axalta business. The distributors that have chosen to partner with Axalta in South Africa enjoy access to international technical excellence and local commercial value to help drive their businesses forward.

“Flexibility remains a key focus area for the Axalta team, who are committed to remaining fluid as the partnerships are strengthened and growth is achieved. Going forward, the main objective of the partnerships with distributors is to work with bodyshops to grow businesses in South Africa,” remarked Lucian Jantjies, Axalta’s national sales leader in South Africa. “This will be supported by our strong sales, customer service, marketing and technical team, through four trusted refinish brands – Duxone, Nason, Spies Hecker and Standox – exclusively available from us, as the only authorised channel.”

Hannes Kloppers, Axalta’s country business leader for South Africa, adds, “We are delighted that the distributors, who have outstanding reputations with their customers, have decided to partner with us and our international market-leading brands. Our coatings are developed to be applied easily with suitably fast drying times. Our efficient systems allow bodyshops to achieve the perfect colour match, using next generation software and a global database of over 250 000 colour formulations. Bodyshops using our paint systems will experience improved productivity at the highest quality.”
