Award Honors Suppliers that Deliver on Schedule More than 95 Percent of the Time
AJAX, Ontario, June 5, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Axalta (NYSE: AXTA) is proud to announce that it was awarded NAPA Canada's coveted Club 95 Award for a third year in a row. The award was presented to Axalta during NAPA Canada's National Sales Meeting in Niagara Falls, Ontario. The Club 95 Award is given to NAPA Canada suppliers that deliver products on schedule at least 95 percent of the time. Axalta exceeded the 95 percent threshold by one percent.
On-time deliveries are an important factor for any business but for body shops, any disruption in the supply chain can impact end users and may delay the delivery of a refinished vehicle to its owner. Furthermore, insurance providers measure the delivery performance of collision repair centres and reward the best ones with more business. Axalta is committed to helping its customers attain the highest performance levels.
"Our partnership with Axalta is instrumental to our success and has helped us become the preferred supplier for paint and body shop supplies," said Tom Hunt, NAPA Canada Vice President, Product Development. "The team at Axalta works closely with us to understand our needs and make sure we can always provide their quality products to our growing base of satisfied customers. It's a pleasure to recognize their efforts in 2017 by presenting them with our prestigious NAPA Club 95 Award."
"We are honoured to receive the Club 95 Award for the third year in a row," said Troy Weaver, Axalta Vice President, Axalta North America Refinish.

We pride ourselves on being great partners to our customers like NAPA Canada, knowing that our success depends on their success."
