A new worldwide contract to supply products to motor company Daihatsu has been signed by Akzo Nobel's Car Refinishes business.

Akzo Nobel’s Car Refinishes business has signed an agreement with the Daihatsu Motor Company Ltd to supply Sikkens products and services on a worldwide basis.

Under the terms of the deal, the entire range of Sikkens refinish paint products and technical services are approved for use in Daihatsu dealerships and Daihatsu approved bodyshops worldwide.

“This new agreement is an official endorsement of the trust Daihatsu has in our paint products and services,” said Cor de Grauw, general manager of Akzo Nobel Car Refinsihes.

“We are delighted to be selected as a paint partner and look forward to working with Daihatsu and its dealers to help further improve the bodyshop network.”
