"Our Board’s decision – reached only 100 days after becoming an independent company – to invest and grow with our customers reflects our long term commitment to the auto industry in China and around the world,” said Charles Shaver, Chairman and CEO of Axalta Coating Systems. The new facility will be close to customers in the Shanghai area and have easy access to major transportation routes reaching into western and southern areas of the country. This additional facility will complement the manufacturing capacity of Axalta’s flagship OEM coatings manufacturing plant in Changchun that is already accelerating production to meet extraordinary growth in automotive production in China.

Axalta Coating Systems is a global provider of liquid and powder coatings to automotive OEM and refinish, transportation, general industrial and selected architectural and decorative customers. The company manufactures at 35 plants, develops new products and technologies at seven global R&D locations and, at 42 locations around the world, educates customers with training courses. With more than 14,000 employees and USD 4.3 billion in revenue, Axalta Coating Systems, formerly DuPont Performance Coatings, will continue to build on a more than 145 year strong legacy in the coatings industry.
