SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA: Axalta Coating Systems (AXTA) has commissioned the construction of a new 10,200-square-meter Australian headquarters in Marsden Park, in Western Sydney. The facility will house corporate offices, a state-of-the-art training facility, and a warehouse and distribution centre for up to 50 employees, the company said.

Scheduled to open in the first quarter of 2019, the facility will serve the company's refinish and commercial vehicle customers, light vehicle OEMs, as well as industrial and military customers in Australia and New Zealand. The new centre will support each of Axalta's customers with high-quality paints, lean processes, and sustainable applications.

In 1976, Axalta established its business in Australia with a focus on providing regional training centres in each capital city across the country. The new headquarters will house the national training centre that will focus on refinish and industrial products. Refinishers who attend courses at the site will maximize their skillsets and stay up-to-date with the latest technology and techniques.

"Building a new headquarters is part of our commitment to Australia and an important component of our growth strategy in the region. We're confident that this new site will help us deliver innovative and comprehensive coating solutions to our customers. The site will deploy environmentally responsible processes and provide a healthy environment for employees and the community," said Steven Brett, Axalta's managing director for Australia and New Zealand.

"Axalta's new training centre is all about supporting our customers. Using our leading refinish and industrial brands, training will focus on driving process optimization to help body shops be more efficient and productive to ultimately improve their business performance and gain a competitive edge," added Paul Polverino, Axalta's national training manager.
