Agreement Signed With Ford

Akzo Nobel Car Refinishes Netherlands has signed a new partnership agreement with Ford Netherlands.

The deal, which was signed at the recent AutoRai car trade fair in Amsterdam, confirms Car Refinishes as a partner in the upgrade of the Dutch Ford Bodyshop program.

It means Ford officially recommends Sikkens car paints for the repair of Ford vehicles.

“Under the new agreement, we will help Ford to upgrade and expand its Bodyshop program in the Netherlands through a series of joint projects,” explained AAM manager, Wolf Creemers.

“Sikkens is already the leading brand among Dutch Ford dealer bodyshops, but this agreement opens up new marketing opportunities among our customers and those Ford bodyshops that are not yet using our products.”

The pilot for the Dutch Ford Bodyshop Upgrade program will start shortly at a Sikkens customer in the Netherlands.
