Throughout the month of September, the company will move its service centre from Valle de Tamón in Asturias to the Llanera Technology Park. This move is promoted by the regional government and managed by the Economic Development Agency of the Principality of Asturias (IDEPA). The infrastructure and services provided by the Technological Park, as well as the existing options for future expansion, have been some of the fundamental reasons for choosing this site. The centre will provide financial, technological, human resources, purchasing, logistical and marketing services on a global level.
The move resulted from the company’s decision to make Asturias its “global centre of excellence”. This change will allow the company to increase its staff by 197 employees from 12 countries; from a minimum of 400 up to 2020. New hires will be made in Asturias and others will be transferred from within the company.
The multinational American company Axalta Coating Systems began operations as an independent company in 2013, after the de-merger from DuPont as an automobile industry painting company. The company is present in America, Europe, Africa and Asia Pacific, has over 13,300 employees and serves 100,000 clients, creating annual sales of 3.761 million euros.
