BASF extends commercial supplier agreement with Mercedes-Benz

BASF has recently secured a multi-year contract with Mercedes-Benz in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region that extends its longstanding, commercially approved supplier status with the car company to Australia, Japan, Malaysia, South Korea, Taiwan and Thailand.

The agreement, which builds upon its success with Mercedes-Benz in the Europe, Middle East and Africa region, includes its Glasurit and R-M premium automotive refinishing brands and RODIM paint-related products.

As part of the complete offer to Mercedes-Benz, BASF says it will deliver a complete offering of digital and data solutions including its highly efficient digital colour management tools, which help body shops to speed up workflows.

Its digital portable spectrophotometers precisely measure the colour on the car, and quickly and easily takes the painter to the desired mixing formula.
