Garmat USA Latest Sponsor of BSB Waterborne Conference

Garmat USA has become the seventh sponsor of the 2009 BodyShop Business Waterborne Conference (Aug. 13-14), demonstrating its commitment to educating collision repairers on one of the biggest changes the industry has ever seen. The company joins fellow sponsors AkzoNobel, BASF, DuPont, Global Finishing Solutions, Sherwin-Williams and Spray-Tech/Junair.

“Garmat USA is eager to be part of this industry-wide conference on the topic of waterborne coatings,” said Cheryl Grisar, Garmat USA’s director of marketing and national accounts. “Each manufacturer produces different types of drying/curing equipment, and we look forward to this opportunity to demonstrate our Accele-Cure System and its advantages and benefits so that the end user can make informed decisions about which drying system is best for his or her own application. Since Accele-Cure is currently being utilized with great success in thousands of body shops worldwide, and has the endorsement of some of the major paint companies in the industry, Garmat felt that being a part of this waterborne conference would further enhance our commitment to being the leading manufacturer of technologically advanced solutions for the automotive industry.”
