Auto & Industrial Supplies is an appointed distributor of Axalta, the suppliers of Spies Hecker and Duxone car paint. Spies Hecker has been approved by numerous vehicle manufacturers such as Mercedes, Volkswagon, Toyota etc. Manufacturers approved Repairers ( Panel Beaters) are only allowed to use an approved paint. 


The Spies Hecker paints that are supplied by us are Hitec Water Based System , Permahyd Water Based System and a Solvent Based System. We also supply Duxone which is a very good non-approved paint system that also offers very good colour matching and because Axalta have not applied for manufacturers approval, the paint is a more affordable option to Spies Hecker. It is suitable for the non-approved Repair Shops and the DIY car body repairers.
