Mercedes-Benz Renews Approval of Standox
Mercedes-Benz AG has renewed its approval of Standox. Effective 1 April 2021, Standox is once again approved for use across the Mercedes-Benz network in eight Asian-Pacific (APAC) markets, until 31 March 2025. This agreement is in addition to Mercedes-Benz approvals already in place with Standox in over 60 countries globally.
Additionally, Standox is awarded Mercedes-Benz Preferred Partner Status in Australia, India, Japan and Taiwan.
Simon Lee, Managing Director for Axalta’s Refinish business in APAC, says, “Car manufacturers need paint brands they can trust to deliver a high-quality finish for repairs and Standox has been approved for just that by Mercedes-Benz for over 20 years. We are very proud to be continuing our successful alliance with Mercedes-Benz in 2021 and beyond.”
Standoblue from Standox, the brands’ third-generation waterborne basecoat, are particularly well-suited to the Mercedes-Benz network as they provide excellent colour matching and customised solutions for superior and durable finishes. Under the terms of the agreement, Standox will not only supply Mercedes-Benz bodyshops with refinish paint, but also will provide the highest quality technical training, colour management assistance and general consulting and support.
