A&AC will be providing more than just paint to Toyota - as is typical of A&AC, the relationship will include support, training, and value added activities to boost productivity and efficiency. The announcement, which follows a rigorous technical review, applies to A&AC's vehicle refinishes brands Sikkens and Lesonal.
Under the agreement, A&AC will offer the latest low VOC Sikkens and Lesonal automotive repair paint systems. A&AC's Director Europe, Middle East and Africa, Simon Parker, noted that the process-centered environment philosophy which A&AC has developed should play an important role in delivering the improvements that Toyota is expecting from the partnership.
"Over the last 10 years, we have developed an outstanding relationship with Toyota all around the world, and the announcement of our selection as a preferred supplier to Toyota Motor Europe will only serve to strengthen that relationship," commented Parker. "We are very pleased to see that our focus on sustainability, and our technical and repair process innovations have resulted in this strategic partnership with one of the key car manufacturers in the world."
