Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions has held a series of workshops between Australia and New Zealand, bringing a specialist car wrap trainer out from Germany.
The six workshops were tailored to enhance installation knowledge of Avery Dennison’s Supreme Protection Film SPF-XI, a paint protection film, among experienced vehicle wrap installers. These workshops were successfully sold-out in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland in late August and early September.
Rainer Lorz, or “The Car Wrap Trainer”, is a much sought-after Avery Dennison Specialist Trainer based in Germany.
He is one of the select few in the industry to become a member of the MOB (Masters of Branding). He is part of the Paint is Dead network and is often seen in videos on The Wrap Institute. Lorz has more than 15 years of specialist experience in installing Paint Protection Film (PPF), Window Tint and Traditional Pressure Sensitive Adhesive (PSA) films.
“Avery Dennison shares the passion of the professionals in the vehicle wrap installation community and we are excited to lead the path towards high quality education in this field,” said Jordan Leach, senior business manager at Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions in Australia and New Zealand.
“We were proud to have Rainer Lorz lead our brand new series of workshops.”
The workshop gave hands-on application training in the use and installation of the Avery Dennison SPF-XI Supreme Protection Film, a high-quality thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) that has a self-healing top coat designed to protect paintwork from weathering, as well as insect stains, stone chips and road debris.
The attendees also received an applicators pack with essential tools, and were awarded an Avery Dennison Certificate of Completion.
Lorz said, “It was my first time visiting Australia and New Zealand, and I had a great experience. Special thanks to Avery Dennison Graphics Solutions Australia and New Zealand team consisting of Peter Wright and Theo Kostarakis for helping to make this happen. Also to Nick Caminiti (Exotic Graphix, Victoria), Michael Palladino (Auto Artisan, New South Wales), David Wright (The Wrap Shop, Auckland), and our distribution partners.
“I’m looking forward to when I can return to Australia and New Zealand again to visit my new friends. Hope to be back in 2020!”
