Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, held the grand opening event of its Americas Technology Center (ATC) located at its Mount Clemens, Michigan manufacturing and research complex on May 2.

Reflecting Axalta’s commitment to innovation and performance, the company says, the ATC will provide product research and development resources dedicated to customers across the Western Hemisphere as one of the company’s four principal global technology centers.

The ATC project was an 18-month endeavor to transform and expand existing laboratory space and spray facilities. Axalta scientists, chemists, and engineers will develop the next generation of coatings products for light vehicle, commercial vehicle, refinish, and industrial customers throughout the Americas. Previous R&D conducted at the facility principally served the light vehicle segment in North America.

“As a strategic part of Axalta’s global network of technology centers, the ATC will combine our global expertise and research resources with local talent and market knowledge across the Americas,” says Barry Snyder, Axalta’s senior vice president and chief technology officer. “This new space adds new capabilities to aid the Axalta team in further advancing our coatings technology to increase the durability of coatings, enhance customer productivity and, of course, provide beautiful colors. Michigan is home to nearly 400 automotive research and development centers, and we are proud to count our Americas Technology Center among them.”
