Standox, the global refinish paint brand from Wuppertal, Germany, has been voted Paint Brand of the Year at the inaugural Irish Auto Trade Awards, held in Dublin, Ireland on 9 November 2014.
The awards ceremony was the conclusion to the two-day Auto Trade Expo held at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel and Exhibition Centre. The first of its kind to be held in Ireland, this trade-only Expo was host to nearly 130 exhibitors from all sectors of the Irish automotive aftermarket, and welcomed over 3,300 visitors through its doors.
Automotive Publications organised the event, and the award winners were voted for by readers of its key publication, Auto Trade Journal.
Anthony Cashel, Marketing Manager for Axalta Coating Systems in the UK and Ireland, says, “This is a great win for Standox. We were up against the major paint brands. To have been voted number one by the readers of Auto Trade Journal – the end-users of our products - is a wonderful testament to the reliable quality of the products and the service Standox offers.”
David Dempsey, Vehicle Refinish Sales Manager for Crown Paints in Ireland, accepted the award on behalf of Standox. Crown Paints, based in Dublin, is the sole authorised importer for Standox in Ireland.
