AkzoNobel has launched a new initiative at its International Research Centre at Bangalore. The India Analytical Centre (IAC) as this new initiative is now known was inaugurated by Dr Graeme Armstrong, AkzoNobel's Executive Committee Member responsible for Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) and Director on the Board of Akzo Nobel India Limited.

According to Armstrong, "India is recognized globally for frugal innovation and as a fast emerging R&D hub. Over the years, AkzoNobel's International Research Lab in Bangalore has been very successful in product and colour research for automotive customers, world-over. The efficacy of our Bangalore lab has also been due to its exceptional collaboration model with multiple other AkzoNobel labs around the globe."

The India Analytical Centre at the company’s Bangalore lab will leverage global and local resources to provide analytical services to fulfill the needs of all coatings businesses in India; be it decorative, industrial, protective or automotive coatings. The IAC will also have the process capability to evaluate and certify raw materials, intermediates and products in India.
