Axalta Attends 33 rd Annual Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament

Axalta Coating Systems (NYSE: AXTA) will be on deck at the 33rd Annual Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament held in North Carolina’s Outer Banks on August 16-19. Axalta, a leading global supplier of liquid and powder coatings, offers a premium quality line of coatings designed to deliver the industry’s best appearance, performance, and corrosion protection specifically for the marine segment.

The Pirate’s Cove tournament pavilion will hold exhibits from supporters and sponsors promoting their sport-fishing products, services, and accessories. Axalta’s booth will celebrate its 150th anniversary in the coatings industry and feature Imron® MS600™ Single Stage Polyurethane Topcoat, Imron MS100™ Polyurethane Basecoat, as well as our primers and interior marine products. The durability and abrasion resistance of Axalta’s marine coatings is formulated to help ensure that yachts retain their gloss and mirror-like finish longer and require less maintenance over time.

The Pirate’s Cove Billfish Tournament attracts captains from the East Coast. These competitors will search for blue marlin, white marlin, sailfish, spearfish and swordfish for the opportunity to score big upon successful catch and release. Boat owners, sponsors, and crew alike will gather to spectate and compete for almost $500,000 in cash prizes if they participate at least three of the four days throughout the week-long event.

“Axalta is delighted to continue to support the non-profit, world-class event at Pirate’s Cove. It’s very exciting to be part of an event that brings the community together,” said Richard Cecchini, Axalta North America East Region Sales Manager. “It allows us to build relationships, understand our customer’s needs, and is the perfect way to promote our brands with a collective audience of customers.”
