VW Gives Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes Technical Approval

Volkswagen Group has entered into a corporate agreement with Sherwin-Williams and approved the Sherwin-Williams refinish paint brand for use at Volkswagen Group brands (VWPC, Audi, SEAT, Skoda, and VWCV) certified collision repair facilities in North America, South America and Asia Pacific.

This is a result of Sherwin-Williams’ performance in testing to meet the Volkswagen Group’s intensive refinish coatings specifications. The certification confirms that only the best-in-class products are utilized for Volkswagen Group vehicles repaired at its dealerships and certified collision repair facilities.

Along with meeting high product standards, Sherwin-Williams will provide Volkswagen Group certified collision repair facilities with verified color support and industry-recognized product and management training.

“We’re very pleased that Volkswagen Group has certified us and look forward to supporting its dealerships and certified collision centers,” said Tom Hablitzel, president and general manager of Sherwin-Williams Automotive Finishes. “The new partnership demonstrates the trust Volkswagen Group places in our products and will help expand our reach around the globe.”
