WTP Dekor, Sweden

Anders Prates is co owner of WTP Dekor on the west coast of Sweden, a small company with a strong focus on future development. WTP is unique in that the three founding partners, Anders Prates, Diego Castro and Claes Lindvall, are Avery Dennison certified installers. The three wanted to wrap their own private cars, and when they did not find a company that could do this according to their expectations, they decided to start their own venture. They have attended multiple trainings and workshops and have professionally converted over 1000 cars. WTP Dekor is known for thorough and accurate work, and in Prates’ opinion, every customer and car is unique and needs to be treated accordingly.
