Axalta Congratulates the Philadelphia Eagles


The Philadelphia Eagles are World Champions of Football! The Philadelphia Eagles bring the title home and quarterback Nick Foles has been named Most Valuable Player after leading his team to victory. Axalta is proud to partner with and paint winners. Our partnership with the Philadelphia Eagles continues to grow with new initiatives ranging from STEM education to sustainability and new business opportunities.

In our third year of the Axalta All-Pro Teachers program, our partnership with the Eagles  recognizes exceptional middle school and secondary school teachers specializing in STEM education (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) across the Philadelphia region. Thirty educators have been named an Axalta All-Pro Teacher and have received special recognition for their educational drive, innovative use of technology, and community commitment inside and outside of their classrooms. Of those teachers, we have also named three Axalta All-Pro Teachers of the Year.

Our partnership extends into a sponsorship that includes the Axalta Tunnel Club and The Kickoff Show. We also support the Eagles Charitable Foundation through special events and programs. In addition to corporate social responsibility and sponsorships, our coatings are used in many sports related applications from providing a sustainable solution for the goal posts at Lincoln Financial Field to covering brightly colored NFL and NCAA football helmets made at Schutt Sports.

Axalta All-Pro Teachers

The Philadelphia Eagles and Axalta Coating Systems have partnered to recognize exceptional middle school and secondary school teachers specializing in STEM education across the region in the 2nd Annual Axalta All-Pro Teachers program. Ten teachers will receive special recognition for their educational drive, innovative use of technology, and community commitment inside and outside of their classrooms.  

“As we know, teachers work to inspire and motivate their students to reach their full potential every day,” said Eagles President Don Smolenski. “We are proud to once again partner with Axalta on a program that pays tribute to their exceptional commitment to students throughout Philadelphia.”

Goal Posts

Axalta has given the field goal posts at Lincoln Financial Field, home to the Philadelphia Eagles, a new look for the start of the football season with its premier industrial coating. Alesta® Polyester Architectural AE Gloss RAL 1016 in Sulfur Yellow has been selected as the color and product of choice due to its high-performance coverage, durability, and functionality. 

“We recently reevaluated our overall procedure because we found ourselves having to repaint the field goal posts multiple times during the year,” said Tony Leonard, Director of Grounds, Philadelphia Eagles. “We went to our partner Axalta Coating Systems to find a solution that would provide us with the durability we need. Thanks to their innovation and expertise in the field, Axalta’s reliable coating will allow our field goal posts to withstand the weather elements and maintain NFL specifications.”

Football Helmets

Schutt Sports creates ground breaking helmets used in the NFL and NCAA Football. So when they were looking for a loyal coating partner, they came to us. As a company that continues to push the boundaries of innovation and technological improvments in the sporting industry, Schutt trusted Axalta to provide the highest level of coating performance and protection for its helmets. Our FlexBase™ paint system helps deliver chip resistance, quality appearance and flexibility to Schutt helmets so players on the field can focus on what really matters ---- winning the game.
