GLEN MILLS, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--From collision repair shops in Miami to hot rodders in Vancouver and everywhere in between, the custom calendar produced annually by Axalta Coating Systems since 1993 is rich in tradition. Many custom car enthusiasts throughout the United States endeavor to have their vehicles featured in the calendar. If your car is painted with one of Axalta’s brilliant paint systems it might just make the cover.
Axalta, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, is pleased to announce the launch of its Custom Finishes Calendar Competition.
