The new RCC, which expands BASF’s global network of Refinish Competence Centres, will offer customers an opportunity to learn, practice and fully master the use of BASF’s automotive refinish products. The training offerings will include courses on application techniques, the optimal use of paints, as well as colour matching.

"The RCC Johannesburg enhances the Group’s global network of training centres and confirms our commitment to invest in areas where we operate,” said Harald Pflanzl, Senior Vice President Automotive Refinish Coatings Solutions EMEA.

The facility comprises two spray booths, two preparation bays, two polish areas, as well as one meeting and two seminar rooms. Other added benefits of this facility include the centralisation of all products and services: the RCC, the warehouse, the colour lab and the administrative department.
