Axalta to build new Australian headquarters

Axalta, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, has commissioned construction of a new 10,200m2 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.

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.

“Building a new headquarters is part of our commitment to Australia and an important component of our growth strategy in the region,” said Steven Brett, Axalta’s Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand. 

“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.”

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 maximise their skillsets and stay up-to-date with the latest technology and techniques.

“Axalta’s new training centre is all about supporting our customers,” said Paul Polverino, Axalta’s National Training Manager.

“Using our leading refinish and industrial brands, training will focus on driving process optimisation to help body shops be more efficient and productive to ultimately improve their business performance and gain a competitive edge.”
