AMSTERDAM - AkzoNobel’s Powder Coating business has launched a new ready to ship (RTS) product collection with 489 products included, an expansion necessary to support the speed to market needed in today’s competitive market place.
The RTS collection offers many new products including several low-gloss products, primers, agricultural options, marker board white, furniture coatings, weatherable metallics, and a host of whites, black, greys and clears in multiple chemistries. The offering covers most powder coating needs and is offered with the digital apps, eCommerce, and InstaMatch color matching tool.
"Having [a wide] industry offering allows our customers to find exactly what they need with their first attempt and be assured of the highest level of quality and reliability,” said Steve Kiefer, North American business director for AkzoNobel. “The vast array of RTS products gives our customers the flexibility, speed, and convenience they’re looking for in a powder supplier.  When coupled with our advanced digital tools...the selection, information, and independence offered to the customer is like never before.”
AkzoNobel says the broad selection of stock products supports the customers’ need to meet increasing timing demands with consistent quality. Customers have a new-found system to independently identify the specific product they need by searching by color, chemistry, specification or performance criteria and have direct access to AkzoNobel’s comprehensive product line including application parameters, product data sheets, stock locations, and pricing.
“The new RTS collection of products has everything I need to exceed my customers’ expectations,” said purchasing agent, Gary Parks, from Draper, Inc. “AkzoNobel stock powders have the range of appearance, performance, and convenience that I need to get the job done.”
