DWS Bodyworks renew PPG Refinish UK and Movac Group as Approved Paint and Distribution Partners

Movac Group and PPG Refinish UK are pleased to announce the renewal of an exclusive Paint and Distribution Partnership agreement with DWS Bodyworks; the South East based bodyshop group.

The renewed agreement with PPG and Movac Group which followed a rigorous tender and technical selection process; is based on the supply of PPG Refinish UK paint systems and delivery of technical support to optimise performance and boost bodyshop productivity across the DWS group of seventeen bodyshops.

This continued partnership agreement builds on the strong working relationship both PPG and Movac has with the largest privately owned independent bodyshop group in the UK.  

Dave Smithyes, Executive Chairman at DWS Bodyworks comments on the renewed partnership

“We’ve worked with PPG and Movac for many years and we are extremely pleased to confirm our continued partnership with them. The PPG and Movac team have continually delivered value to our business; and excelled in the technical selection process and so the decision was straightforward!

With the help of the PPG and Movac team we are more productive than ever, helping us to deliver faster repairs and enhancing our customers experience”

Working closely with DWS paint technicians, the PPG and Movac team have run comprehensive product usage and process audits and as a result the group have embraced new paint innovations and process engineering to further improve paintshop efficiency and performance across the group.

By selecting Nexa Autocolor paint systems and utilising the technical expertise of PPG Refinish UK and Movac Group, the DWS management team have seen a dramatic measurable increase in efficiency and productivity across the sites which further demonstrates the value of the PPG and Movac proposition.
