Glasurit paints are now available in Egypt.

Glasurit paints are now available in Egypt. The importer for the Glasurit products is the German Center for Paints (GCP) in Cairo. Antar Ibrahim, president and owner of GCP wants to make GCP the leading supplier on the Egyptian refinish product market, he said. One of GCP's first jobs as a Glasurit importer was the changeover to environmentally friendly, waterborne 90 Line technology on the Egyptian market. For this project, an international team from BASF Coatings and GCP worked together closely. Within 12 months, ten large bodyshops switched over to using Glasurit exclusively.
