Refinish Solutions Group (RSG), a Saint-Gobain initiative, announced Farécla as a new member of the alliance.
Founded in 1952, Farécla is one of the largest manufacturers of polishing compounds in the world. The brand name Farécla is a combination of French words meaning “shining” and “bright.”
RSG has established itself as an alliance of industry leaders that leverage their core expertise to help collision centers optimize refinish processes to improve profitability. The addition of the product portfolio from Farécla, combined with the extended sales team of RSG, provides auto body shops “with great access to a one-stop, comprehensive refinishing-solutions system to increase productivity, reduce cycle time and improve quality,” according to the company.
“Saint-Gobain acquired Farécla in late 2018,” said Ron Cuccia, North America national sales manager, automotive aftermarket, Saint-Gobain Abrasives. “We are excited by the increased focus on collision repair and the technical expertise Farécla brings to engineer new solutions for the automotive market.”
Additional details regarding the official launch and process for ordering Farécla products will be coming soon.
