The Refinish Competence Center at BASF Spain in Marchamalo (Guadalajara) celebrated its official reopening. This training center is dedicated to teaching body shop technicians, distributors and large automotive companies, all of them BASF customers in Spain and Portugal, about its renowned premium brands Glasurit and R-M. In addition, it hosts numerous events intended to promote the training of young future professionals, through initiatives such as “R-M Best Painter Contest” or “Castilla-La Mancha Skills”, as well as training vocational teachers through the FORTECO program.

Originally built in 1983, the facility is among the top addresses for BASF customers in Iberia and more than 2,000 people a year participate in the training programs. The training is key to being able to master the complex techniques of color adjustment and automotive refinishing, and it provides a complete overview of the latest innovations of the two brands.

Since the start of this year, the Marchamalo center has invested around 2.5 million euros in renovating the facility so as to offer the best possible technological experience. The fundamental reason for the modernization was BASF’s innovative spirit as well as its commitment to its customers. With a clear focus on sustainability and environmental protection, BASF has installed equipment with maximum energy efficiency and minimum emissions.
