Mazda signs agreement with paint suppliers

Mazda Motors UK has signed agreements with selected paint suppliers for its approved bodyshops.

The agreements are effective from August 8. The use of one of three paint systems for warranty work is mandated across all Mazda approved bodyshops in the UK.

As preferred partners, whose products are now exclusively approved for warranty repairs, Mazda has selected three brands from two manufacturers – Sikkens (Akzo Nobel), DuPont Refinish and Spies Hecker (both DPC-owned).

Steve Jelliss, Mazda aftersales director, said: "We believe paint manufacturers have a significant part to play in the development of Mazda’s approved bodyshop network in the UK, with Akzo Nobel and DuPont Coatings becoming key partners for us."

There are 163 Mazda franchised dealers and authorised repairers in the UK currently operating with a network of 152 bodyshops.
