News: AAA Says Record Number of Americans Will Hit the Road Over July 4 Holiday
Chrysler Corporation announced it has installed an Aquabase Plus waterborne paint system in its Auburn Hills, Mich., national technical training center, bringing it into conformance with other Chrysler facilities. The majority of Chrysler assembly plants already use PPG waterborne coatings.
“We have been using PPG systems for years. When we decided to go green, we looked closely at Aquabase Plus,” Ron Nomura, Chrysler’s paint platform body structures manager, dealer technical operations, said. “We were very impressed”
The national technical training center evaluates equipment and materials and approves aftermarket refinish products for the OEM. Implementing the use of waterborne coatings had been under consideration for the center since California and Canada mandated their use.
“We have always had a strong relationship with Chrysler,” said Ken Davis, PPG manager, OEM business development. “Needless to say, we’re very pleased Chrysler chose the Aquabase Plus system for their training center. As an OEM, they’re always looking to their manufacturing partners to see how we can help continuously improve their overall quality.”
