Akzo Nobel Car Refinishes has received approval from General Motors Europe (GM) on the Sikkens brand paint system. The approval extends to GM's collision repair centers as well as collision repair centers doing work on GM products as Chevrolet/Daewoo, Vauxhall and Saab.
Based on the long and successful partnership as a private label supplier to GM's Opel brand and the existing technical approval from GM North America (GM4901M), GM Europe granted Akzo Nobel a technical approval for their Sikkens brand paint system for GM's brands Chevrolet/Daewoo, Vauxhall and Saab. Combined with the approval of GM North America, that has to be renewed with significant effort year after year, this in fact means a global technical approval that enables Akzo Nobel to enter into national contracts with GM's national sales companies.
