“This collaboration builds upon our commitment to provide a full-range of coating solutions for the automotive supplier industry,” said Dan Wohletz, vice president, automotive, Henkel North America. “We have an extensive team of sales and service providers in this industry that are now able to provide our customers a complete coating solution, from pre-treatment to e-coating.”
Because customers can now partner with one provider for all of their coating solutions, this agreement enables them to consolidate their supply base to become more efficient. Henkel’s strategic partnership with DuPont has already resulted in agreements with key automotive parts suppliers.
“We are pleased to partner with Henkel to bring CorMax to the automotive components market,” said Dave Lazzeri, business director, Americas, DuPont Coatings Solutions. “With Henkel’s expertise in coatings and surface treatments, we have a channel that will allow us to expand the reach of our e-coat solutions.”
