Community Enjoyed Getting to Know a Neighbour Axalta Coating Systems, a leading manufacturer of liquid and powder coatings, was pleased to host members of the Ajax and surrounding communities during Doors Open in Ajax, ON on September 26, 2014.  More than 340 community neighbours, families and friends visited the facility.  Visitors were briefed on the paint manufacturing process and took a tour of the plant. A highlight for many was the virtual painting challenge where guests participated in a painting simulator. Another highlight for the group was learning about Axalta’s colour leadership role that has been part of the company’s legacy for more than 60 years, as demonstrated by Axalta’s 60th Anniversary Colour Popularity Report. Guests also had the opportunity to take photos with the No. 24 Axalta Chevrolet SS driven by four-time NASCAR  Cup Series champion, Jeff Gordon. Doors Open Ajax is one of 49 open house events in Ontario. Every year from May to October, communities across the province open the doors of hundreds of historical buildings, places of worship, museums, private homes, industrial areas, green buildings, heritage gardens and more to welcome visitors to some of these rarely accessible venues. Axalta’s Ajax facility is one of the city’s earliest established businesses. Axalta was happy to be a part of Doors Open this year.
