Syrox, a global refinish brand from Axalta, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, has announced that mobile automotive repair network Renew My Car has become an official distributor of its easy-to-use paint systems in South Africa.

This is a new venture for Renew My Car, an Australian company that launched in South Africa in 2013. Known for its mobile repair units that offer spot repairs at vehicle owners’ homes or workplaces across the country, Renew My Car recently partnered with Bosch Car Service – a rapidly growing network of repair workshops – to offer vehicle owners the flexibility of one-day and spot repairs from fixed locations. In its new role as distributor, and with its knowledge and experience of the Syrox brand, Renew My Car is installing Syrox systems in all Bosch Car Service sites, and is currently looking to repeat this partnership with other workshop groups across Sub-Saharan Africa and beyond.


Henk van der Walt, Managing Director of Renew My Car in South Africa, says, “We are excited to offer Syrox to all of our customers, in particular Bosch Car Service. Syrox products are compact and complete, are simple to use, yet cost-effective, and they are backed by Axalta, who, with more than 150 years’ experience in the industry, is still pushing the boundaries by continuing to develop innovative products with cutting-edge technology.”

Syrox was created to meet the demand for a straight-forward, conventionally applied refinish system that is economical to use and delivers accurate colour matches, thanks to Axalta’s established and proven spectrophotometer technology and substantial global database of colour formulas. The packaging of the Syrox product range has been designed to be easy-to-handle and comfortable to hold while applying the products is straightforward, thanks to familiar application methods. 

Inge de Jonge, Product and Training Manager for Axalta in South Africa, reckons, “We are thrilled to welcome new Syrox distributor Renew My Car, a dynamic, growing company that is responding to the market’s need for quick and easy refinish solutions, making it a perfect partner for Syrox.”
