Axalta ANZ receives ‘seal of approval’ from Mercedes-Benz Queensland

Mercedes-Benz, QLD (MBQ) Autobody is a prestige repair facility and the only OEM-authorised Mercedes-Benz repairer in the city. The 20-strong team undertake a range of repairs from heavy structural damage through to cosmetic repairs.

Over an extended period, MBQ Autobody had the unique opportunity to trial all four major refinish brands, including the Standox Standoblue waterborne system.

For Vince and his team, the trial was very successful. The refinish technicians especially were thrilled with the system.

“The quality of the paint and the finish was a standout,” explained Vince. “The processes seemed to be simpler than the other brands and the guys loved it.”

Once the decision had been made to switch to Standox, MBQ Autobody began the process of transitioning across, supported by Axalta’s Queensland representatives.

“The Axalta crew made it very simple to transition. Importantly, the reps were very transparent right from the start – very clear and direct, which I liked. They came out during the trial period and showed us how everything worked. The reps corrected any issues that arose straight away. I’ve never experienced anything like it – they are very supportive and regularly visiting us to make sure everything is fine. We’ve built a fantastic relationship.”
