One of the UK’s leading accident repair groups, The Vella Group, has cemented its long-standing relationship with AkzoNobel, installing the Sikkens Autowave 2.0 paint system country-wide across its network of repair centres.

The ‘Rethink’ campaign shows how re-evaluating the products, tools and processes used within a bodyshop during a repair process can contribute to achieving carbon emissions reductions, saving energy and reducing waste.

With a history spanning over three decades, The Vella Group has become synonymous with quality service and repairs, and in 2021 they were one of the first independent repair groups to become carbon neutral.

This commitment to working sustainably and delivering safe and efficient repairs was a driving force behind The Vella Group’s decision to install the high-performance Sikkens Autowave 2.0 paint system across its nine UK bodyshops.

The Autowave system will increase efficiency by reducing application time and solvent emissions, helping The Vella Group maintain its PAS2060 accreditation and boost its sustainable business performance.
