PARIS - AXSON, Paris, France, has created a new group by combining BS Coatings, Revocoat and Axson Technologies. The new group will strengthen the company’s expertise in high-performance operational polymer formulation.

“Our three businesses together represent a major asset for AXSON’s customers who will now have access to a broader range of solutions,” said Charles Churet, Chairman of AXSON. “And every customer will benefit from the synergy of the expertise, R&D facilities and worldwide presence of these three businesses.”

AXSON is further strengthening its global presence with the construction of a new Revocoat formulation plant in Kolomna, Russia, for the local automotive market. The facility will also be a shared platform for future developments of the group’s three businesses.

AXSON also announced BS Coatings’ acquisition of equity in SIPCO (Saudi Industrial Paint Co.). The joint-venture with the Saudi group UNIVEST will develop SIPCO’s industrial paints by introducing technologies for the production of BS Coatings’ pipelines under the Eurokote® and Endoprene® brands for the Middle East market.
