Standox unveils System Tools Plus

Keeping up to date with the ever-increasing array of colours busy bodyshops need can be a time-consuming, though vitally important, job. That’s why Standox created System Tools Plus, a support and colour update system that takes care of the colours and lets the bodyshops concentrate on giving their customers the best refinishing results.

System Tools Plus, launched in 2007, now has nearly 400 members who have all recognised the huge advantages offered by being part of this programme, from fast and efficient service to help in every stage of the colour-matching process.


“This year, we have launched five different packages within the System Tools Plus offering,” explains Jodie Henly, Standox brand specialist. “With these options bodyshops can choose what suits their individual requirements best, like the CV package or the Colour Box and Genius package for instance.”

Members of the Systems Tools Plus programme receive regular visits from expert contractors who give them the latest colour updates as well as product and technical data specifically tailored to their business, regardless of whether they work with Standohyd or Standofleet. Formulations are available online at any time, and members have access to colour and technical support through the dedicated telephone helpline and via the new Standox microsite which gives comprehensive information on the full range of Standox colour tools.

“At Standox, we constantly strive to deliver colour competence to our bodyshops,” continues Henly. “Through the System Tools Plus programme we are able not only to supply the member bodyshops with up-to-date colour information as it becomes available, but also we can assist them in everything from colour training to getting their PAS125 Vehicle Body Repair Kitemark.”
System Tools Plus offers valuable assistance to its members striving for the PAS 125 Vehicle Body Repair Kitemark through compliance of the colour update, or computer maintenance and scale calibration.

As well as receiving technical and safety data sheets, Colour News, and training guides, member bodyshops are offered free attendance on the Standox Genius Colour Tools course (subject to availability), which is held regularly throughout the year at the Refinish Academy in Stevenage. Registered bodyshops also receive a 50% discount voucher for selected Standox training courses.
Standox has produced a System Tools Plus brochure which gives detailed descriptions of each of the five new packages. To obtain a copy, to join the programme or to attend a Genius Colour Tools course, bodyshops should contact their local Standox distributor or visit
