Automotive Art has launched its state of the art Automotive Paint line in Puerto Rico & St.Thomas, with the appointment of Juar-Gon Corporation as its nationwide distributor in Puerto Rico and St. Thomas USVI.
Chairman and CEO of Automotive Art Dereck Foster said ‘What excites us about this market is that the number of cars in the Puerto Rico alone, far exceeds the total number of vehicles in the entire English speaking Caribbean. Even more exciting was the fact that Juar-Gon’s technicians tested our products against many other global paint brands that they were considering representing, and we beat them in all round performance’
Mr. Alberto Juarrero CEO of Juar-Gon Corporation said ‘We tested the product, both in Barbados and in Puerto Rico and we were blown away by the results. However, what sealed the deal for us is when we visited Automotive Art’s headquarters in Barbados, not only were we impressed with the paint, but their training centre and extensive support systems that they have in place, such as marketing, computer systems, and even more impressive was their distribution system. This is truly a world class company’
At the launch in Puerto Rico potential sub distributors had the opportunity to test the products and the feedback received was extremely positive. The second phase of the roll out, to automotive body shops is currently underway.
