Ireland's Publication for the refinishing & associated Industries

Glasurit extends partnership with FIVA

Glasurit, BASF’s premium refinish paint brand, has extended its partnership with the international federation for historic vehicles (FIVA) for another three years.

Since 2016, Glasurit has been the exclusive global technical advisor for paint related topics of FIVA, the world federation of classic car clubs, which represents more than two million members in more than 75 countries worldwide.

FIVA is represented in Ireland by the Irish Veteran and Vintage Car Club Ltd. in Shankill, Co Dublin.

Glasurit says that the goal of the collaboration with FIVA is to provide access to the best repair and restoration solutions to classic car owners around the world.

Uta Holzenkamp, president of BASF’s Coatings division said: “We are always close to our customers and know that car enthusiasts around the world love their classic vehicles.

“And with more and more countries showing high interest in classic vehicles and more car enthusiasts asking for original colour refinish and after care, our reputation with our Glasurit brand grows across all refinish paint segments.”

Due to the collaboration with Glasurit, FIVA can connect the classic car owners who are looking for feasible paint solutions with a network of specialised body shops. These experts support in finding an original colour or the careful preservation or repair of an aged paintwork.

The signing of the new contract took place at the headquarter of BASF Coatings in Münster, Germany – the biggest paint factory in Europe and the home of the Glasurit brand.
