For the Sikkens team that regularly works alongside Restu Ibu’s bus painters, it also feels like a partnership. According to our AkzoNobel Commercial Vehicle Sales Manager Muhammad Farid,
“We have a great relationship with this company and the people on the paint shop floor. We’re always trying to help them find new efficiencies in the way they do their jobs. For example, we worked with them on a changeover from conventional sprayguns to the faster and easier electrostatic and air assist models, which has saved them 20-25% in costs.”
