Published on 2015-06-03. Author : SpecialChem

Volunteers from AkzoNobel's Vivechrom brand in Greece have helped to restore the exterior façade of the historic National Technical University of Athens.

The company offered to supply both paint and manpower after the cultural landmark was recently covered in graffiti. One of the country's oldest and most prestigious education institutions, it was founded in 1836.

"We are proud to have participated in the restoration of the building's exterior," said Vivechrom's Managing Director, Makis Provatas. "As a company, we are committed to creating better everyday lives for all citizens, while focusing on the positive impact of color and always showing respect for heritage and culture."

He added that Vivechrom employees embraced the challenge and were keen to get involved in helping to restore one of the city's most cherished monuments.
The project also highlighted some of the key elements of AkzoNobel's Human Cities initiative, which is designed to make cities more inspiring, energizing and vibrant for people across the world.
