EQC and Akzo Nobel put Service First
Euro Quality Coatings have been recognised further for their commitment to quality with the award of Service First Associate status by Akzo Nobel Powder Coatings, the World’s largest coatings manufacturer.
Service First is a programme that recognises only the top coaters in the UK and involves rigorous auditing and testing of systems to verify the coating quality. Furthermore, EQC are the only coater in the UK to have electrodeposition coating (or ecoating) recognised as a primary pre-treatment to powder coating, achieving the maximum corrosion protection under the test criteria.
Also verified under the scheme were EQC’s inline chromate, phosphate and shotblasting pre-treatments, tested alongside Akzo Nobel’s market leading anti-corrosive primer and polyester powder coating systems.
EQC’s Quality Manager, Rhys Davies commented: “We are proud to have been awarded Service First status by a company like Akzo Nobel.
The test procedures were rigorous but proved that we have the right quality procedures to be amongst the top coaters in the UK. It also proved that our ecoat facility provides a unique duplex coating system offer to the UK and the results achieved there were superb.”
