Press Release
DaimlerChrysler renews agreement with Standox | 30/05/2006

DaimlerChrysler has renewed its cooperation with Standox GmbH, Wuppertal. The new agreement is of unlimited duration and underlines the confidence in the products, technical support and consulting services offered by Standox. �The expansion of our cooperation�, says Standox Brand Manager Dr. Julio Salcedas, �shows once again that our products and services meet the highest standards of international markets. I am sure that both sides will benefit from the closer cooperation.� The agreement replaces the previous five-year arrangement. It applies to more than 70 countries worldwide and forms the basis of additional national agreements to be signed from 2006.

Under the agreement, Standox offers a complete package of efficient solutions to help improve profitability and management processes within DaimlerChrysler�s service network. On a regional level, Standox specialists give advice and support to the car maker�s authorised bodyshops so that they are able to face the challenges of an industry marked by constant change. This includes customised training programmes that take into account the special requirements of the DaimlerChrysler bodyshop network. Training is held worldwide in more than 80 Standox training centres.

The cooperation between DaimlerChrysler and Standox is a perfect example of a successful long-term partnership. The car maker has relied on the forward looking refinishing products from Standox for many decades. Standohyd, the waterborne paints system, plays a vital role here; nowadays almost 100 percent of DaimlerChrysler bodyshops use waterborne paints, including all DC Body and Paint Centres managed by Standox. For the past three years, the group has also used the scratch-resistant Standocryl Platinum Clear for repairs of Mercedes Benz cars, which features particularly high levels of mechanical and chemical resistance and protects vehicles from minor scratches and loss of gloss.

Standox is one of Europe�s leading manufacturers of automotive refinishing paints. With its headquarters in Wuppertal, Germany, the company offers innovative and environmentally compatible product systems in over 80 countries. Standox seeks to build long term relationships with its customers based on premium product quality, and high levels of practical support. By working closely with the automotive industry, Standox has achieved the largest number of approvals from all leading automotive manufacturers. This makes Standox the preferred partner of professional independent and franchised bodyshops.
