Axalta officially opened its new 5,300-square-meter Australia and New Zealand regional multi-functional facility.
"This new facility... demonstrates our confidence in the growing Australian and New Zealand markets and creates an important opportunity to be closer to our customers under one roof," Axalta CEO Robert Bryant said. "Customers will benefit because of the greater access to new products, faster customer service, and the unique training opportunities offered at our new facility."
Located in Marsden Park, Western Sydney, Axalta's new facility will house regional corporate offices, a customer training facility, and a warehouse and distribution center. Each of Axalta's business segments – Refinish, Industrial, and Transportation – will be represented in the new facility to serve its customers.
Axalta's state of the art customer training facility in Sydney will use the company's latest coating technologies, industry-leading training techniques and advanced digital tools to enable its customers to deliver the highest quality refinish solutions to the end-user while increasing their productivity and profitability.
