“Several years ago, we were moving from a competitive waterborne refinish system. We interviewed many paint companies. Sikkens was the clear winner. But the product is just the beginning. What continues to blow our minds to this day is the business and technical support AkzoNobel provides to its Sikkens customers. They meet with us regularly to help us develop a blueprint for success for our entire body shop; and just as importantly, they hold us accountable for keeping the timelines we commit to. They’re almost like a board of directors for us. The level of professional consulting that we received from AkzoNobel took us from zero to hero in one year, and it cost us nothing. We’re profitable, we’re growing and we’re smiling.”

“We believe that Sikkens helps us be competitive because they’re the best color match out there. We’ve used other paint manufacturers before, but nothing comes close.”

“We’ve been using Sikkens products for a total of 38 years. I feel that Sikkens is by far the best automotive paint system available to us in our market. Being a member of the AkzoNobel Acoat Selected program and having a business [services] manager has been essential to our success.”

“The difference with AkzoNobel is the people. When I was hired into this shop several years ago, every paint rep under the sun came and threw everything at us. The AkzoNobel rep stood out because he really listened to me. He has a thoughtful, intelligent approach that resonates with me. And my Acoat Selected services consultant is a huge asset to our shop. He’s an instrumental sounding board for me. The Sikkens product? It speaks for itself.”

“I will not use anything but Sikkens Autoclear clearcoats. My absolute favorite is Sikkens Autoclear Superior 250 – that is the stuff, man. And those guys at the east coast [Malvern, PA] training center? We have a great relationship with them – they’re just great to work with.”

“We wanted to be greener, and get a better finished product while cutting down on waste, and we have achieved all of these things with the Sikkens Autowave waterborne system by AkzoNobel.”

“We don’t believe we would be in business today if we had not partnered with Sikkens and the Acoat Selected program in the beginning.”

“Converting paint lines is stressful for painters and the entire production team. The technical support I received from my jobber and AkzoNobel during the onboarding process was outstanding and the transition went very smoothly. Sikkens Autowave is definitely a superior product line versus other systems I’ve used. I’m glad we made the switch.”
