The refinish industry’s skills shortage is a problem plaguing European bodyshop owners, with regional research indicating that many are fearful it will become a full-blown crisis. Jim Muse, Axalta’s Vice President of Refinish for Europe, Middle East and Africa, says to overcome a skills crisis the industry must position the profession as a career for the digitally savvy and environmentally aware.
Axalta today announced that it has sold its 60,000th spectrophotometer, with 10,000 sold in the past 15 months. The rapid increase in recent sales is attributed mainly to a strong global digitisation trend. These increasingly popular handheld digital tools are an accurate and fast way of colour matching that boost the efficiency of bodyshops.
Axalta announced the official opening of a new, state-of-the-art Refinish Training Center in Midrand, Johannesburg. The Company recently announced the opening of a new refinish facility at the same location at the end of 2018.
