Axalta Coating Systems, a global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, broke ground to expand its manufacturing capacity for coatings with the construction of a new USD 50 million eco-friendly waterborne facility in the Jiading district of Shanghai. At a ceremony attended by dignitaries from the region, Axalta Chairman and CEO Charlie Shaver officially ushered in a new phase in the company’s commitment to the automobile industry in China. "We invested in this facility to meet growing customer needs for high-performance water-based coatings solutions. With this new facility, we are expanding our capacity to provide waterborne paints to help China’s auto industry develop sustainably,” Shaver said at the ground breaking ceremony.

Expected to begin production in 2015, the coatings producer’s Shanghai waterborne facility will manufacture and supply up to 25,000 metric tons of its waterborne products. Axalta’s expanded capacity for waterborne production will support the long term growth of an automotive industry that is extending into the southern and western areas of the country.
