Axalta Coating Systems in the United Kingdom

Axalta locations in the United Kingdom are in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, approximately 25 miles north of London, and in Darlington, County Durham, in the North East of England.

The Welwyn Garden City is home to Axalta’s corporate UK offices, to its three global premium refinish brands, Cromax®, Spies Hecker and Standox, as well as Syrox, a recently launched refinish brand available in the UK. The Axalta Refinish Training Academy is also located on the site, which serves the UK and Ireland.

Darlington is a self-contained manufacturing site for thermoset powder coatings and is the European manufacturing centre for functional coatings for the oil and gas industry. The site is comprised of the UK and Ireland powder sales offices, as well as various customer support functions and the colour-matching lab. Its internal warehousing allows next day delivery to UK customers.

The Spencer Coatings Group, a leading manufacturer of high performance industrial coatings for heavy-duty equipment, general industrial, oil and gas, and glass coatings segments, became part of Axalta in June 2017. Spencer’s line of industrial products, manufactured in facilities in the U.K., will join Axalta’s portfolio of Performance Coatings for industrial customers. With a shared commitment to customers and strong foundation in product innovation, Axalta will utilize Spencer’s products and people to serve existing customers in the U.K. and expand into new geographies.
