Axalta Announces Automotive Artwork Donations

Fundraiser Supports Collision Repair Professionals in Need


GLEN MILLS, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Axalta Coating Systems, a leading global manufacturer of liquid and
powder coatings, donated unique works of art to aid the Collision
Industry Foundation’s (CIF) fundraising efforts. In support of the
recently held CIF 6th Annual Fundraiser, Axalta partnered with custom
automotive artists Paul Quinn, Danny Taylor and DeWayne Connot to create
pinstripe panels and a one-of-a-kind pedal car for the fundraiser’s
auction. The artists were on display, as they painted the pieces using
Axalta’s brilliant paints in Axalta’s booth at the 2015 Specialty
Equipment Market Association tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Companies like Axalta continue to make it possible for CIF to support
collision repair professionals who have fallen on hard times,” stated
CIF Vice President Kelly Broderick. “Axalta’s donations have
significantly assisted CIF’s fundraising efforts during our recent gala.
Thank you, Axalta, for your continued generosity in supporting CIF and
our industry in so many ways.”

CIF is a charitable foundation dedicated to raising, managing and
donating funds to collision repair professionals in need due to natural
disasters or other catastrophic events.

Axalta appreciates the artists who helped us highlight our flagship
global refinish brands – Cromax®, Spies Hecker®
and Standox® and made it possible to give to this worthy
cause.
