AkzoNobel Powder Coatings’ first Cromadex centre opens in Ireland

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS: AkzoNobel and Carbon Group combined forces to open the first Cromadex centre in Cork, Ireland. The new centre will offer industrial coatings customers an array of products and services. It features a salt spray and laboratory testing facility as well as a surface treatment and application facility.

The Cork centre will supply a wide variety of surface treatment, paint technology and plant equipment, as well as a range of coatings brands including Cromadex, Interpon, International and Sikkens. “The Cromadex centres offer global experience with local stock, quality brands and the flexibility, speed and efficiency we know coaters need,” said Dave Heflin, GMF Manager, Europe West, AkzoNobel.

The official opening was complemented with an open day providing visitors with information from technological advances to future proofing their businesses, as well as tours of the paint centre and application area to test products and equipment.
