Axalta Coating Systems has inaugurated a newly refurbished technology and R&D center for its powder coatings operations in Mexico. The facility also provides expanded capabilities for Axalta sales, technical services and product management staff, who will be able provide enhanced quality and service to Axalta customers in the region.

“We are thrilled to inaugurate our innovative facilities, which will help us serve our customers better every day,” said Alfredo Villalobos, director of industrial coatings for Axalta in Latin America. “Without the support of our customers, we would not be here today. Indeed, some of our customers have been with us from our first day of operations. We are grateful for their partnership.”

Axalta began its powder coatings operations in Apodaca 24 years ago, producing powder coatings for automobiles, home appliances, HVAC, architectural and electrical applications, gas pipes and toys. Production from the adjacent powder coatings manufacturing facility is used in Mexico and exported to several countries in Latin America.

“We do not merely have customers, we have commercial partners who have been with us from the very beginning,” said Isabel Alanis, commercial director for Axalta’s powder business in Mexico and Central America. “Their success is our success.”

During the inauguration event, some of Axalta’s powder coatings customers received an award acknowledging their long-lasting partnerships.
