Axalta increases powder coatings production capacity in Germany

11:56 AM, 7th December 2016

BASEL, SWITZERLAND: Axalta Coating Systems (AXTA) has invested to expand and to enhance manufacturing capabilities for its Alesta brand at its powder coatings production facilities in Landshut, Germany due to growing market demand.

The investment supports Axalta’s powder coatings growth strategy and follows progress in its powder coating business in Eastern Europe coupled with increased demand from Central Europe. It is the second investment to expand powder production in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region this year.

Axalta’s powder coatings offer outstanding mechanical properties, are highly resistant to weathering and are well-suited for architectural façade applications.

The investment demonstrates Axalta’s commitment over the past two years to further develop capacity and increase productivity in the manufacture of its coatings around the world in order to meet its customers’ needs. The expansion project in Landshut consists of three phases and is due to be completed by the end of March 2017. Phases one and two concluded at the end of 2015 and in March 2016 respectively.

“Minimal supply time is very important to our customers, and that’s one of the reasons we chose to invest in the Landshut site. Once complete, the additional production facilities will provide significantly greater capacity. This means we will produce even more of our high-quality powder coatings for the Austrian, German, Italian and Swiss markets, as well as those in Eastern Europe,” said Matthias Schonberg, VP of Axalta Coating Systems and president of its EMEA region.
