FIVA (the Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens or international federation of historic vehicles), which relies on the technical know-how of the Glasurit paint brand for all paint-related issues, has extended the partnership with Glasurit for another three years.
The two organisations signed the new contract at BASF Coatings’ headquarters in Münster, Germany.
The main objective of the collaboration is to provide historic vehicle owners worldwide with access to the best repair and restoration solutions, via a network of specialised workshops. Here, experts can help in the search for the original colour shade – or in the careful preservation or repair of old paintwork.
President of FIVA, Tiddo Bresters, along with Senior Vice President Mario Theissen, emphasised at the signing of the contract: “FIVA is delighted with this partnership. Paint preservation and technical processes are very important to FIVA and its members and Glasurit, thanks to both its in-depth knowledge of paintwork in historic vehicles and its passionate approach, plays a major role.”
Uta Holzenkamp, President of BASF’s Coatings division, added: “The partnership with FIVA is a long-term success story for both sides, as more and more countries show interest in historic vehicles, and an increasing number of enthusiasts ask for refinishing in paintwork that matches the original as closely as possible.”
