Chip Foose and KC Mathieu Demonstrate Spray Gun Duel at BASF Automotive Refinish Open House

Chip Foose and KC Mathieu prepare for a spray gun duel at the BASF Houston Competence Center Open House.


On June 7, Chris Toomey, BASF senior vice president, Coatings Solutions North America, welcomed guests and hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for BASF’s new Houston competence center alongside members of the Lake Houston Area Chamber of Commerce and real estate developer Trammel Crow.

The highlight of the open house was the appearance of automotive designers Chip Foose, owner of Foose Design, and KC Mathieu, previously featured on Discovery Channel’s hit series Fast N’ Loud.

“Our new competence center in the Southwest illustrates our commitment, not only to the automotive refinish market, but also to our distributors and collision repair shops in the area,” said Toomey. “It’s great to have Chip and KC here to highlight their commitment to Glasurit® and R-M®. We’re honored that top designers and restorers exclusively use BASF paint systems.”

BASF opened the 13,000 square foot building in March. According to the company, the center includes the latest in virtual and in-person training facilities, state-of-the-art spray booths and market-leading application equipment to enable next generation training for all job functions in the collision repair industry.
