Axalta Partners with Huajia



Published July 4, 2014
Axalta Coating Systems will expand its powder production facility in China. New capacity will be added at the Qingpu manufacturing center of Axalta’s powder coatings partner Huajia Chemical Co. Ltd. and will double production to meet the rapid growth of the east China powder coating market. Huajia is a subsidiary of Yongjia Chemical Co. Ltd.

The plant will add a new production workshop, increase the number of manufacturing lines, increase color matching capability, install special manufacturing equipment and is designed to ensure shorter delivery lead times.

Mike Cash, senior vice president and president of Axalta’s global Industrial Coatings business said, “We are excited about our growing powder business and product offering in China and the ability of our added capacity to fulfill the demands of our ever growing customer base in east China. Through this expansion, together with our partner, Huajia, we will continue to expand our powder coating business, product offerings and manufacturing capabilities to build a leadership position in the powder coatings market.”

“Axalta is an established global leader in liquid and powder coatings, and we are proud of our longstanding and successful relationship with Axalta in China,” stated Xu Xiangming, deputy general manager of Huajia Chemical Co. Ltd.  “This investment is a strong commitment to our loyal customers in East China, and our desire to add many more customers to our Axalta coatings family.”

In China, Axalta’s powder coatings are used in a variety of end-user applications, including customers in the automotive, oil and gas pipeline, transportation, architectural, information technology, furniture, and general industrial sectors. In addition, Axalta’s powder coatings feature environmentally sustainable technology and have earned a reputation for corrosion resistance and durability due to superior edge coverage, thick film build, and primer-less systems.

In China, in addition to a manufacturing facility in Qingpu, Axalta and Huajia operate powder coating manufacturing plants strategically located in Huangshan, Guangdong, Chengdu, and Shandong.  Axalta also operates liquid manufacturing facilities in Changchun and is completing a significant waterborne coatings expansion at its waterborne coating facility in Jiading.
