Axalta Coating Systems , a leading global manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, has opened its new Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) headquarters in Basel, Switzerland. Members of Axalta’s EMEA leadership team, who had been located in different offices, have all been in the new Swiss premises as of July 1 when the regional headquarters became fully operational.
Matthias Sch’nberg, Axalta Vice President and President of EMEA, says, ‘This move reflects our commitment to have a truly regional vision. By having our EMEA leadership team, who set the strategic direction of the EMEA businesses, in one location, we can leverage synergies and focus fully on driving growth in our markets. This in turn allows our country management teams to concentrate on the all-important daily local operations. But ultimately, this change is designed to make all of us in the region even more focused on our customers through improved cross-functional collaboration.’
Switzerland was chosen because of its central location in Europe and an accommodating environment and talent pool for international business. The Basel area also has easy access to two international airports that provide a gateway to the entire EMEA and global community.
