HOUSTON (ICIS)--Valspar has officially opened an auto refinish training centre in Shanghai, China, the US-based global coatings and paint firm said on Thursday.

The 600-square-metre centre is equipped with product inspection and test equipment, such as a water-based spray booth, Valspar said. The company invested (CNY) 5m ($794,000) in the centre.

“We are young to this market and are ready to accelerate our capacity to grow together with our customers for great success,” said Carl Wierks, vice president of Valspar's automotive business. 

“After opening two technical training centres in three years, we are ready for China and are committed to provide accurate colour and precise formulation to our business distributors and to Chinese car owners,” Wierks added.
