Acoat Celebrates Silver Jubilee

Akzo Nobel’s Acoat Selected Partner Program is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

by the company’s Car Refinishes business in the Netherlands in 1976, the program was extended to the UK in the early 1980s to support forward-thinking bodyshops in the areas of training, management and business development.

than 1,000 bodyshops have now joined the scheme in Europe alone, part of an international network of quality-led, independent collision repair businesses that use products and repair systems developed by Sikkens.

special conference was held in Barcelona recently to mark Acoat's landmark achievement, when a variety of international speakers addressed the 2,500 delegates who attended.
