A phoenix rises in Pruszków

A fire has only given the AkzoNobel Automotive Training Center in Pruszków, Poland new life. After being restored and expanded, it’s the most advanced of our automotive training facilities in Europe.

Doubling in size and sporting new, state-of-the-art equipment, the revived AkzoNobel Automotive Training Center in Pruszków, Poland is going to get customers even more excited about our vehicle refinishes. It will serve as a hub of learning and collaboration, hosting more than 1,000 people a year.

Customers will deepen their knowledge of coatings and application techniques through a variety of classes, while our experts will also work closely with them in the research and development of potential new products and services.

Cutting-edge technology

The facility in Pruszków joins many other AkzoNobel training centers around the world, like one opened just three years ago in Dubai, in serving our customers with cutting-edge equipment and training to promote product innovations locally.

Pruszków’s entire expansion is dedicated to world-leading technology. One of the exciting additions is two integrated USI Italia spray booths. These booths are equipped with a system of cameras that allows us to train customers in the application of the newest coating solutions: candy colors, matt and semi-matt finishing products and special purpose varnishes.

Another innovative feature is a moving booth from Spraybooth Technology Ltd. (STL). One of only a few used in Europe, it’s perfect for spot repair. And in the Advanced Mixing Room, colors are measured and selected using our digital color application MixitTM and AutomatchicTM , our  spectrophotometer – part of our digital transformation of the painting process.
