Honolulu, Hawaii -- March 3, 2014 -- AkzoNobel recently marked the third decade of offering business services in the North American market through the Sikkens Acoat selected program. The milestone was observed during the Winter North American Performance Group meeting, a semi-annual gathering of the Acoat selected North American businesses. The conference was held February 12 through 14 at the Hilton Hawaiian Village in Honolulu, Hawaii. The three day program was designed to enhance the performance of individuals and businesses represented through a mutually beneficial exchange of information, success stories and consultation.
Early Bird classes were led by Marcy Tieger of Symphony Advisors and Greg Horn of Mitchell International. In addition, â€œWalk-Aboutâ€ programs were conducted dealing with both current issues and future trends. Attendees were treated to a series of shop tours at collision repair centres original to the Acoat selected Program and located in Honolulu.
These shops were Island Fender, Kroda Autobody, Okaâ€™s Autobody, Acme Fender.
â€œAs one of the worldâ€™s largest paint and coatings companies we know our customers find value in these engagements,â€ said Barry Rinehart, North American Commercial Services Leader for AkzoNobel Automotive & Aerospace Coatings. â€œAs always, the numbers tell the story. As we enter our third decade of providing cutting edge business development programs many of the shops that were with us in the beginning remain with us today. We wouldnâ€™t have that kind of loyalty if there wasnâ€™t something of value being delivered and received.â€
