The award was based on the parameters of safety, delivery, quality, cost and service.

With daily production reaching almost 70 buses during its peak season, Tata Marcopolo has become one of Asia’s leading bus manufacturers. This is the third consecutive year that Tata Marcopolo selected Axalta Coating Systems for this award.

Axalta has been Tata Marcopolo’s exclusive coatings supplier since 2008, and Axalta says two of its systems in particular contributed to the award.  Axalta’s wet-on-wet paint system has supported Tata Marcopolo’s more than five-fold increase in production by offering increased productivity and energy savings. In addition, Axalta’s value engineering programs have helped improve Tata Marcopolo’s production line by improving the skills of workers and reducing costs, according to the company.
