Axalta: Ground breaking for new coatings facility
The 46,000-square-meter new plant will produce mobility coatings to support growing customer demand in China for light vehicles, commercial vehicles, and automotive plastic components.
Scheduled to open in 2023
As the largest and one of the fastest growing automotive markets in the world, China is regarded a key growth driver by Axalta and its Global Mobility business unit. The new plant is scheduled to open in 2023 and will mainly produce basecoats, primers, and clearcoats used in Axalta’s processes such as high solids technology.
“Our new plant in Jilin is another building block supporting our ambitious growth strategy for our mobility business in China,” said Nicolas Franc de Ferrière, Vice President, Mobility, Asia Pacific at Axalta.
