“We are very pleased to honor our top ten suppliers at Axalta’s first Supplier of the Year Awards event,” said Martin Horneck, Axalta Senior Vice President and Chief Procurement Officer during the ceremony. “This program recognizes our partners who provide the highest quality and most competitive raw materials and services to Axalta, enabling us to be a leader in the industry and, equally important, to develop the innovative technologies and customer-focused services for which we are known.”
The winning suppliers were selected by a cross-functional committee representing Axalta’s global R&D/Technology, Operations, and Procurement organizations around the world and judged by their ability to provide superior quality, service, technology and pricing to Axalta. Nominees were also evaluated on their sustainability initiatives.

Axalta’s Center Injector at the Daytona International Speedway is one of five expanded and redesigned entrances that lead fans to a series of escalators and elevators, transporting them to three different concourse levels. Each level features spacious social areas, or “neighborhoods,” along the nearly mile-long exterior façade of the track.
