DaimlerChrysler renews agreement with DuPont Performance Coatings

By Tim Wright

Published June 1, 2006
DaimlerChrysler has re-signed a global cooperation agreement with DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) for the use of DuPont Refinish, Spies Hecker and Standox refinish brands. The agreement was signed at the DaimlerChrysler Global Parts and Services offices in Stuttgart, Germany.

The agreement renews a previous five-year program. DaimlerChysler will receive full support from DPC during 2006-2007, when the European Union will introduce new environmental regulations for vehicle refinishing requiring all EU shops to transition to waterborne paints. DPC introduced its first waterborne refinishing products in 1994.

With the help of the three DPC brands, all DaimlerChrysler accident repair centers and the majority of their approved body shops now comply with the most recent environmental regulations. DaimlerChrysler also has access to dedicated training programs at DPC Information and Training Centers globally, in addition to on-the-job training and support.

Daniel Rubin, business manager, DuPont Performance Coatings, Europe, Middle East, and Africa, said, "The fact that DaimlerChrysler has once again chosen DPC as a preferred partner reflects the hard work of the three brands. I am proud of the environmental stewardship both DaimlerChrysler and DuPont have been able to achieve with the early adaptation of waterborne refinishing systems."
