SHANGHAI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA), a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, hosted the final session of the China Auto Dealers After-Sale Service Skill Competition at Axalta’s Beijing Training Center from Feb. 13-16. Axalta supported the competition by providing products from its premier refinish brand Cromax®, and by developing the competition program. Axalta also assigned painting experts to set the judging criteria and rating scheme, and sit on the judging panels.
The China Auto Dealers After-sale Service Skill Competition 2016 was organized by the China Auto Dealers Chamber of Commerce with the aim of enhancing auto after-sale service in China through recognition of top refinish technicians and quality service in the auto market. The competition covered three key areas: maintenance, sheet metal and paint spraying. High performing technicians were selected from the regional competitions to attend the final session based on a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
“With the rapid growth of China’s automotive industry, the demand for superior quality after-sale products, excellent services and skillful professionals continues to increase. Axalta is pleased to support this program to raise standards in the auto refinish market by showcasing and promoting high-quality refinish solutions and services.

During the competition, all attending technicians used Axalta’s Cromax® products and solutions to perform painting operations. Cromax® enhances refinish efficiency which, in turn, promotes energy conservation and sustainable development in the industry. This generates extra value for a large number of auto dealers and car owners across China.
