Glasurit and FIVA extend partnership

Glasurit to remain global partner for all paint-related matters

For the past three years, Glasurit has been the exclusive global partner of Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA), the international federation of historic vehicle clubs. The success achieved by the partnership has now prompted FIVA to sign a new agreement in which it extends and intensifies its collaboration with Glasurit, BASF’s traditional premium paint brand.

“As FIVA’s exclusive partner for all matters related to paint and refinishing, Glasurit has taken on the role of a global technical consultant for all paint-related matters,” explained FIVA Vice President Dr. Mario Theissen. “Glasurit has made an important contribution to the work of the FIVA commissions. Especially significant is the work by Jürgen Book, Classic Cars Manager at BASF, who collaborated in writing the Charter of Turin Handbook. All topics related to paint are a real challenge when vintage vehicles are maintained and restored. Thanks to Glasurit, FIVA and its members can now tap into the know-how of an industry leader.”

Glasurit also highly values the partnership with FIVA. “The cooperation has really raised our profile and has also enabled us to achieve recognition for our technical competency on the classic car scene. The wealth of questions raised by the classic car fans are helping us to see what needs still are out there beyond the developing of historic colors,” Book explained. And Katja Scharpwinkel, head of BASF’s Automotive Refinish Coatings Solutions Europe business unit added, “At the national level too, a number of contacts have emerged that bring together classic car owners with Glasurit and its network of specialized body shops.”
