DuPont Performance Coatings opens new training facility in Canada

DuPont Performance Coatings has officially opened its new, state-of-the-art training facility in Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada.

The facility serves customers located in eastern Ontario, Quebec, the Atlantic Provinces and northeastern U.S., and supports a range of industrial segments including collision repair, aviation, industrial coatings, commercial fleet and OEM heavy-duty truck and bus.

"DuPont is proud to make this world-class training facility available to our customers and distribution partners in Eastern Canada and across North America," said Ray Anderson, director of DuPont Refinish, Americas. "It's a tangible demonstration of our commitment to the industries we service and to maintaining our leading market position in Canada."

Construction of the training center was completed in December 2006. The center features a 12,000-square-foot production area with dedicated paint facilities for DuPont Refinish, Standox and Spies Hecker brands, an oversized booth that can accommodate up to 12 students, and the latest equipment for waterborne and solvent-based technologies.
