Axalta expands plant for water-borne coatings
The expanded site is designed to meet the growing demand for sustainable coating solutions for automotive, commercial vehicle and industrial markets in China and the Asia Pacific region.
Doubling the plant's productivity
The expansion includes new added waterborne basecoat, primer and small batch capacity. The new production facilities, in addition to two new warehouses, will more than double the Jiading waterborne plant's production capacity. According to Axalta, the facility optimises productivity through advanced automation, maximises the use of raw materials and accelerates manufacturing cycle time, while minimising the environmental impact of the production process.
"Our investment in waterborne coatings embodies the principles of sustainable manufacturing while ensuring we continue to meet our productivity and profitability goals," said Barry Snyder, Senior Vice President and Chief Operations and Supply Chain Officer. "Axalta will continue to make investments in China that expand our footprint and capabilities in order to meet the growing needs of our customers."
