Product Recommendation Extended

Akzo Nobel’s Car Refinishes business in Mexico has obtained a further one year product recommendation from the VW Group.

Akzo Nobel’s Car Refinishes (CR) business in Mexico has obtained a further one year product recommendation from the VW Group.

The new agreement—which runs from August 2003 to August 2004—authorizes the use of Sikkens products in VW, Seat, Audi and Porsche dealer bodyshops across Mexico, where the VW network is the biggest in the country.

"VW was the first written recommendation we secured in Mexico, so we are really pleased to have retained it for a further year,” said CR Mexico's Marketing Manager, Carlos Partida Soto.

“The first approval took more than 12 months of tests and negotiations, but this year's approval was much simpler.”

VW Technical Manager, Arturo Brena Pinero, added: "We have renewed our agreement with Akzo Nobel for a further year due to the quality of the Sikkens products, the accuracy of the color matching and the high level of service and support provided."
