Bengaluru, 12th December 2022:Nippon Paint, Asia’s real No.1 Paint Manufacturer, today announced the expansion of their XR painter training in Bengaluru to empower over 200 paintersby the end of this financial year. Nippon recently also introduced the Extended Reality (XR) painter-training module in Chennai followed by Madurai in Tamil Nadu this year.
Recognised by the Ministry of Skill Development, the XR module uses cutting-edge technology to address the gaps found in conventional methods of training. The basic training sessions will be held at the regional centre. On successful completion, painters can enrol for advanced training sessions after six months.
Painting has always been seen as a painful process by customers and painters are seen as a group of unskilled labours without any proper training. To change this perception and to make customers enjoy the painting experience, Nippon Paint, through XR painter, offers a 6-month training programme to Painters. This ground-breaking training programme, XR (eXtended Reality)painter, was created to assist painters in improving their painting skills for a more seamless process and to train them as professionals.
During this training, Nippon Paint, will adopt modern technology to train the painters, equip them to use high-end tools such as spray-painting machines (100 % dust free machines) and provide modernised painting experience.
The module lets the painter visualise rooms/walls and learn spray-painting techniques without using actual paint. Painters who have cleared this programme will be able to reduce their painting time by up-to 60 per cent, minimize paint wastage, and improve the surface finish, hence ensuring perfection of their projects. This in turn will translate into better business opportunities and multi-project skills for the Indian painter community.
Commenting on the launch of the Training academy, Mr. Mahesh Anand, President Nippon Paint (India) Private Limited (Decorative Division)said, “At Nippon Paint, we always believe in giving back to the industry and contribute to the development of Painters. To empower the painters, the key stakeholder in the ecosystem, Nippon has initiated the training model to modernise the painters and to train them to use latest technologies.” As a driving thought, Mahesh also mentioned that the PROceed Painters will also get the machines at subsided costs.
Mechanised spray painting has the potential to halve the project time and is expected to change consumer mindset in the context of painting. This in turn will translate into better business opportunities and multi-project skills for the Indian painter community.
